Hello. I'm Jed Power, author of the 5 book Dan Marlowe/Hampton Beach, NH crime series and the 2 volume MIke Malloy/Boston-Harvard Square P. I. series. I'm looking for movie interest on both series whether I do the screenplay or not. http://darkjettypublishing.com


None of us can really know us, but as we age we start to develop a good idea. The more difficult question is: Do I have the guts to tell the world about me? At age 73 I decided to write my auto biography From a Dime a Dozen. I did not do it for the money but to convey a message that might be beneficial to society. Perhaps so others after reading it could put their life - at whatever age - into perspective.
So do you want to know who I think I am?
The following is a combination of my narrative mixed with responses from people who read my book.
Steve A. Mizera endured endless hardships and emerges after seventy-two years to share his unique experiences. It is the lesson he learned from these experiences that he wants readers to take away after reading his powerful autobiography: From a Dime a Dozen to Priceless (CreateSpace, Amazon.com).
In his newest writing: How to Abolish Child Sexual Abuse Begin by asking Is that a Sexual Predator hiding behind that badge? he offers answers to the questions Who molests Children, when and where, how and why, and he offers recommendations intended to eliminate child sexual abuse.

Born in 1940 in Cressona, Pennsylvania, the youngest son of a Russian, immigrant coal miner, he was incarcerated in St. Francis Orphan Asylum in Orwigsburg, Pennsylvania, at the age of two and for the next decade, suffered mental and physical abuse.

He ran away from sexual abuse at St. Joseph’s House for Homeless and Industrious Boys at 14 to live on the streets of Philadelphia. Having a strong work ethic he is called a Dime a Dozen by a heartless employer. Steve retaliates by stealing $25,000 in tires in 1956 from Gimbels department store.

He fled to Sea Isle City, New Jersey where he taught himself how to repair automatic transmissions. He spent four years in the USAF, sold fruit on the international market for four years, worked as a railroad conductor on Southern Pacific RR and Amtrak for a decade, founded and published a weekly newspaper in a small northern California town for two years while attending law school before going to Alaska to serve in the legislature.

Starting life without bonding and winding through decades of rejection and failed relationships, at forty he committed an unthinkable crime and was sentenced to 20 years in California’s notorious Folsom Prison. Following his release he spent two decades in public service.

Although raised with a bleak view of the world, it is how his life was transformed at the age of sixty when he was informally adopted by loving immigrants who lead him away from a life of crime, and taught him about the love of Jesus Christ, who became his personal Saviour and redeemer..

In 2004 he retired to Christmas Valley, Oregon, a very small town in the high desert east of Crater Lake. In retirement he pursues photography creating vistagraphs (see vistagraphs.net) which are large panoramic scenic views printed on canvas. He adopted the RV life style and lives and travels in a roomy Winnebago.

Hi, I'm a writer of psychological horror and fantasy adventure.My stories are about ordinary, often flawed people who find themselves in extraordinary situations. Desperately, they are searching for meaning and answers. I explore their personal journeys as they attempt to unravel mysteries, expose secrets and ultimately triumph over adversity. The choices they make and the path they follow may lead them towards hope and salvation or the depths of despair.

I have nine books published on Amazon and am currently writing my tenth. I have written, painted and responded to my burning desire to create all my life.

I look forward to sharing ideas and thoughts about writing and publishing with fellow creative-thinkers.
