Telling the riveting true story of what happened when Kevin Scott Hall took in a refugee of Hurricane Katrina, Hall’s second book, ‘A Quarter Inch from My Heart’ is a story of love found in the unlikeliest of Determined to help Maurice “get back on his feet”, Hall was still thrown for a loop by what transpired. Over two-and-a-half years, the two men lived as roommates and friends, forcing Hall to examine his own feelings about race, class and love. When Maurice was diagnosed with a rare lung cancer and AIDS, Hall stayed with him until the bittersweet end, looking after his friend and watching his spiritual and emotional growth.
“When Maurice died, I realized what I’d lost and I began to revisit many experiences that I hadn’t thought of in years,” says the author. “I was the victim of a random street stabbing in 1994, and the event reverberated through my life. In writing the memoir, I detailed my struggles as an artist, family tensions and other events from my past in an attempt to understand how I had come to this moment – letting a mysterious stranger into my life and growing closer to him than I’d ever been to anyone.”
“A Quarter Inch From My Heart is a harrowing account of love and loss. Kevin Scott Hall writes about being young in New York City and reckoning with how we all must grow up by taking care of each other and ourselves. His memoir is not only about one life or even the defining, complicated friendship at its center, but about the universal project of being decent, thoughtful citizens of the world. It is at once deeply introspective and outward reaching.”
A Quarter Inch from My Heart with author Kevin Scott Hall
When a near stranger contacts the author in New York City after Hurricane Katrina, Hall decides to invite him in as a roommate until he "gets back on his feet." That never happens, and over two and a half years, as the relationship deepens, the questions about the new friend's past only grow in number.
The author battles between compassion and tough love, between trust and suspicion. Through all of this, Hall also examines his own past and the difficulties he overcame that gave him strength.
This memoir invites us to ask: Having experienced an almost fatal wounding of our hearts, can we still open our hearts to allow in the love that heals? Can we find hope that transcends the tragedies of our lives?

Kevin's story is inspiring and he has overcome so much: a victim of violent crime, loss, his own HIV diagnosis, bankruptcy, bullying, rejection as a performing artist. He teaches writing and speech, but more than that, Kevin gives life lessons in perseverance and determination

I became interested in writing during my freshman year in college (fall 1998). I was deeply involved in playing Ancient Anguish, a text- based fantasy multi-user dimension (MUD) game. One of the perks of completing enough quests in the game was the opportunity to become a coder for the game.
The joy at seeing my creation come to life got me interested in the creative process, so I decided to pursue a degree in creative writing from Penn State University. I joined the Penn State Schuylkill Campus Collegiate staff, interned at PA Business Central and Voices of Central Pennsylvania, and became a summer correspondent for the Pottsville Republican.
In Dec. 2002, I graduated from Penn State University with a B.A., English, with an emphasis in nonfiction writing. Following graduation, I enlisted in the Army as a print journalist. During my roughly 6 years in the Army, I covered multiple story types (sports, hard news, features), earning several awards. My work has appeared in multiple newspapers worldwide to include Military.com (readership: 6,023,048); Stars and Stripes, Washington, DC (readership: 1,000,000); and the Associated Press, New York, NY. One of my stories, Girl Waits for Second Chance to See, made the front cover of Stars and Stripes.
My work in the Army garnered me numerous awards, including the 2007 U.S. Army Forces Command runner-up Journalist of the Year (one of the top 14 journalists Army wide), 2005 Installation Management Southwest Region Journalist of the Year (one of the top seven journalists Army-wide). Other individual Army awards include editor of the 2007 top Army field publication, second place in 2007 for story series, and second place in 2006 for feature articles.
I am also a graduate of the Christian Writers Guild and have had work published in devotionals such as Soul Journey.

Redeeming Elevated Anointed Living Talk with Pastor 1st Lady Donna Hall.
In light of the current issues facing the Church in today's society, it is important for Believers of Christ to know how to respond to the culture in which we have been chosen to live in. Is the Bible still relevant? Does it speak to today's issues? Is it possible to know how God feels about today's happenings? What should the "church" be doing in this hour?

Deliver us from evil is part of the prayer that our Lord instructs His disciples to pray, even and especially today. The kingdom of God is about fighting and ending evil. But, the spirit of evil is a very horrifying reality and most people are very poorly equipped to cope with it. Tonight we are going to discuss some aspects of the terrifying wickedness that has defined multitudes of people, in past and present generations, because God is bringing His battle with darkness out into the light. There has been a movement in past and present generations to increase evil in the earth. The fury of God's enemies is being released by active investment in evil, because of demonic rage being invoked by deceived men and women. Tonight we are interviewing again a brother in Christ, Kevin Annett, who is a founding member of the group ITCCS.org. We are going to talk about the policies of intentional genocides and the connections with war, war making, satanic ritual abuse, child kidnapping, Ndrangata, Mafia church and state connections and the ongoing battle with enfranchised evil. May God, the Father, deliver us from this evil. My name is Michael-Jay, the call in number is 347-826-9733.
