In 1998, Derrick Samuel pleaded innocent to an armed robbery of a convenience store, but was found guilty and incarcerated. Four years earlier, miscreant Daniel Gordon, serving a ten-year sentence for murder at the Northville Prison, was brutally tortured and murdered by the warden, his guards, and six inmates because of his involvement with the outside world regarding the murders being committed by guards and inmates ordered by Warden Verdana. Daniel also complained about the improper living conditions, drug trafficking, and inhumane working conditions. That evening four years ago, before the prison closed down due to funding, the guards forcefully pulled Daniel out of his cell and dragged down to a decaying boiler room. Inside the room awaited the six inmates and the warden. They beat him, chained him to an open steam pipe, and turned it on. After a few minutes they took him down from the steam pipe thinking he was dead. Suddenly, Daniel spoke, “I shall remember you.” Then, into the furnace they placed him…burning him alive. It is now the year 2002 and a Pen of Iniquity is about to be opened.

I,AM: A force of relentless evil
ISBN: 1453697624

CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform. 2006

We all know how the story begins: God is completing Heaven and Earth. Heaven was full of splendor... and the Angels were filled with laughter. Except for Lucifer, the most exquisite Angel in heaven and the most jealous of God. Lucifer's jealousy of God ignites a war between God's Army and Lucifer's followers. As the war ends, God and his army conquer Lucifer, banishing him from heaven. With God's own two hands, he throws Lucifer out of Heaven to rule in hell for all eternity. However, Lucifer did not gather his jealousy of God and the thought of War by himself. Lucifer was tempted, and manipulated into thinking he could defeat God, by an unknown evil, just as powerful as God. Its name was "No Name," it was neither good nor evil, and it was neither merciful nor malicious. It's "I,AM."
