Jamell Crouthers is a poet, author, blogger and podcaster who has taken on a journey of writing in the prime of his life. He has been writing poetry since the age of 13 but never thought he could utilize his talent to tell stories and write books. He is not the traditional author as he writes his books in poetry format with a focus on storylines and societal issues.

After publishing 11 books (so far), his goals and plans are to continue writing books on taboo subjects that aren't discussed enough in today's world and bringing those main subjects to the forefront. Jamell's blogs tackle societal issues, how he writes his books, his journey as an author and some motivational blogs that will get you to focus on your goals. His goal and moniker is, "to change the world, one book at a time."

What is your name?
Jamell Crouthers

What do you look like?
Average height (5'8"), athletic build but slim, short hair with a beard.

Where are you today and what are you doing?
I watched some college football in the early afternoon, then I went and played basketball with friends for a few hours. I came back home, showered, ate and I'm back to watching college football.

You keep a photo album of memories from your lifetime. If you could only keep one photo, which one would that be?
The photo of my grandmother and I when I was 4 years old. One of my favorite pictures ever.

Are you a morning person or a night owl?
Definitely a night owl, I always do my most important thinking and writing at night.

What is your favorite piece of clothing?
My NBA All-Star zip up hoodie from a few years back when the all-star game was in NYC. I'm from NY so it holds sentimental value to me.

Do you have any phobias? What are they and how intense are they? How have they impacted your life?
I had a fear of flying for the longest time. One time I was flying to Jacksonville with my godmother and my body broke out into an intense sweat, my fingers and toes were tingling and I felt dizzy. I was able to get over my fear of flying by preparing my body to fly, always wearing comfortable clothes, having something to drink and air blowing on me the entire flight while in the air. I also have to have my noise-cancelling headphones and relaxing music on at all time. It's become a routine I do whenever I fly and it's worked like a charm.

Open your wallet, purse, or briefcase. What do you find?
Debit card, driver's license, health insurance card, monthly train ticket, my doctor's business card, and some cash, I'm pretty simplistic.

You move into a new home. What's the first thing you buy for it?
Living room furniture for sure with a big screen TV.

What scares you?
Dying and never fulfilling my purpose in life.

How would your parents describe you?
Kind, caring, funny, enthusiastic, energetic, smart, intellectual, quiet at times, intuitive.

What’s the last thing you do before you go to bed at night?
Drink a warm bottle of water.

Who is your best friend?
I have three, John, Anthony and Bryan, 23 years strong.

Who is your worse enemy?
My mind for sure. I'm my own worst enemy.

Are you faith-oriented?
Very much so, I always have faith in whatever I do in my life and want to do well in all that I do.

Where is your favorite hangout?
My best friend John's house or my best friend Anthony's house (they always have kool-aid and snacks).

When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to be a lawyer for sure. I was always into crime TV shows as a kid, it intrigued me.

If there was one thing you could change about yourself, what would that be?
Definitely overthinking every aspect of my life. It's something I've gotten better at but I'm always a work in progress.

About the Series:
The Code Blue: An Oath to the Badge and Gun series chronicles a police officer named Gary who has been on the force for a few years. He soon is entrenched in a lot of lies, corruption, racism and agendas being pushed by his superiors. The question throughout this series is whether he as a good cop becomes part of the corruption or does he report it?

Part of this series features his son Gary, Jr who is a young teenager wanting to be like his father and go into the police force. He soon learns through the news daily that the police force is not what it really is. Gary ends up having to share the truths of what goes on at work and the relationship between him and his son changes because of it. Now it becomes up to Gary what he is going to do about what goes on at work.
