What People are Saying
About Cherished Diamond
"Ron Alexander has written a powerful book about unconditional love. His honesty about his shortcomings in a relationship is gripping, compelling yet refreshing and inspiring. I was totally shocked about how the relationship ended."
I write to inspire and encourage. The books I write reflect my journey through life, how I have handled drug addiction and a type of mental illness, bipolar disorder, that nearly killed me when I attempted suicide during a very turbulent time in my life. I write about why, through the grace of God, I am alive and healthy today. Being a writer is not a job or career--but my calling.
I do public speaking about racism, addiction and mental illness
My journey through through life has taken me through battling mental illness, drug addiction, racism and discrimination. I joined the Black Panther Party when I was seventeen years old. I was twenty five years old when I was diagnosed as having a bipolar disorder. I became addicted to crack-cocaine and alcohol when I was thirty five years old. It would take me nearly twenty five years until I kicked cocaine and alcohol for good. Today I have been clean from drugs and alcohol for over twenty five years. I am an authentic voice speaking to people losing faith and hope, believing that life has lost all meaning. I am the voice of people trapped in mental illness and drug addiction.
