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.”
PWTorch editor Wade Keller hosts a special live edition of Interview Thursday with new 2014 WWE Hall of Famer Scott Hall (Razor Ramon) discussing his comeback from addiction and then ex-WWE Creative Team member Chris DeJoseph reflects on being part of WrestleManias 21-26, plus thoughts on WrestleMania 30 hype and predictions on WrestleMania 31.
Former WWE/WCW Superstar, Scott Hall(aka Razor Ramon) has a history of substance abuse. After various trips to rehab centers and help from friends(and WWE) it looked like "the bad guy" was in a losing battle with his demons. That was until he moved into the "accountability crib" with DDP and Jake "The Snake" Roberts. Much like Jake Roberts, Scott Hall was able to turn his trouble around and get the help that he needed. Will Scott Hall be able to stay clean now that he has decided to leave DDP's "accountability crib"?
TNA President Dixie Carter decided to take to Twitter to answer the various questions on the minds of TNA fans. In a Q&A session, #AskDixie, she hoped to set the record straight. What Dixie Carter got was a quick lesson in internet trolling as Twitter users bombarded her with jokes and insults about the current state of TNA Wrestling. Even a few former TNA workers couldn't help but get in on the fun. What can TNA do to bounce back from this? Is there a way to bounce back from this?

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
