About Me

Code Blue: An Oath to the Badge and Gun Series

The Code Blue Series somehow became something bigger than me. The best way to describe it is looking at the world now and what’s going on, ...

There's nothing harder than marketing yourself to the masses. I did what not many people do when it comes to their books. I went to the radio to market my book. It seems unlikely that you can do something like that but I was able to through using my smarts and figuring out what avenues I can do down.

So last Sunday, I was able to setup an interview on a talk radio show and answer a few questions about my book:


It's a great interview, worth the listen and it'll give you insight into my book, why I wrote it and my purpose for putting forth so much time into writing a story like this. The interview is 10 minutes long and I answer questions that most people would ask me if they met me.

I hope you all enjoy listening to it and if you have the iTunes Store on your phone, tablet or laptop, its under the Talk 2 Q radio show, you'll see my name in his podcasts Jamell Crouthers.

Be good and follow your goals and dreams, don't be an average person in a world where you can shine and impact others!

Sometimes I wonder if people ever stop to think what their purpose is in life. I say that because I'm around so many people that live a life of mediocrity. It seems like people are walking around like zombies like they have no purpose in life. Everything is so routine and predictable. Wake up to the same alarm clock every morning, get ready for work, sit at a desk, do your work, get paid and wait for Friday to enjoy your weekend.

It's just a sad thing to look at and see. I understand that certain circumstances with having kids, a home, a car and a family to support where you have to grind but then I look at people with the same situations who busted their butts to do better for themselves and their families in life. Has society brainwashed people into law-abiding citizens where they don't critically think and strive for greatness? I'm not saying that everyone should be striving for something bigger but I see potential in so many people and they don't even see it in themselves.

There's this sense of comfort, they have a job, a consistent paycheck, medical benefits and that's all that matters. My question is what would you want to be remembered as when you die. I surely don't want to be remembered for being the desk job guy who did the same monotonous things every single day. Not for nothing but I'm blessed with too many talents and gifts to be doing the desk job thing.

Maybe it's the Aquarian in me, we are creators, we think a lot, we think of the world differently, we see the world differently. Maybe that's because I see I have a different purpose in life. I'm so thankful to the man above for making me realize and see that there's more to life than what our baby boomer parents were taught.

That's one thing I'll say about this newer generation, a good amount of us are striving for better and are thinking in a business mindset. Whatever your passion is, pursue it. You want to live in a certain city, state or country, go for it. I say that to everyone, maybe it's time I follow that advice myself.

Be good everyone and strive for greatness.

There's always the question of why societal issues are never discussed. Are we afraid of speaking about it because it's taboo? Or maybe it's because we don't want to offend anyone. I wouldn't know but too many times we see things go on in front of us or on the news and nothing is done about it.

There are groups of people who do all that they can but there needs to be more people doing more things. Why don't people have more compassion for others in the world? It seems like nothing bothers us until it hits close to home, then we seem to react to things. It seems like it takes a tragic event to make us react to things and what's going on in our environments. 

This is why I wrote this current book which you see below. I watch and observe the world daily and I wrote a few chapters of stories that happen to people and hopefully it opens people's eyes to how much is going on around us and all of the time.

It's time we start discussing societal issues, why they happen and why we deal with them on a daily basis. You can find this book on Amazon and also on Barnes & Nobles. You can read insight on my author profile page which is on this blog. The letter B in white is where you can click onto and read excerpts from chapters of my book along with insight. Hopefully we can start discussing societal issues more and doing what we can to make the world better.

Be good and follow your dreams.
