Event Information

Jason Cook, a Reformed Local Gangster, Comes to David's Share · Public Event

Saturday 03 July 2010
10 am to 1 pm
Jason Cook will be signing his novels, There is No Room for Jugglers in my Circus, £5.99 Pen Press and The Ganster’s Runner, £8.99 Pen Press and talk about his former life as a cocaine addicted drug runner.

Jason Cook, a dyslexic and an ex-con, was smoking and selling hash from his bedroom when he was 12. By the time he was 16, he had moved onto ecstasy and became involved with local gangsters. He carried both knives and guns, t...ook steroids and worked out at the gym to build himself up. By 17, he was helping local gangsters collect debts, from money lending to drugs.

Eventually Cook was given a seven and a half year sentence, of which he served two years, nine months. It was during this period in prison that he was able to finally turn his life around. He joined the education programme, and also volunteered for a drug free wing, where he was given help and support to kick his drug habit.

As part of the rehabilitation programme he was encouraged to start writing about his experiences, which he has continued with, and it is what inspired him to write his first book, "There's No Room for Jugglers in my Circus". His first two novels are being used in the local community in 'drug awareness' groups and he has made many appearances in local Library's to talk about his work, writing with dyslexia and his former life.
