I was born and raised in St. Louis Missouri. At the age of 16 years old I committed two armed robberies of a group of several people. I was ultimately sentenced to 241 years in prison. At my sentencing hearing the judge told me “Bobby Bostic you will die the Department of Corrections”. I was determined to never give up. A part of me was broken inside and I knew that I was a lost soul. So I began to embark on a long journey to find myself.
Ultimately I started reading books. The insight that I learned led me to discover my gift of writing. While in solitary confinement I committed to writing 10 poems a day. In short order I had enough material to create a volume of poetry. My mother passed away from cancer at the age of 42 years old.
In tribute to her and all single mothers I wrote her biography: “Dear Mama: The Life and Struggles of A Single Mother”. I then used my own life experience and studies to write a book titled: “A Generation Misunderstood: Generation Next”.
Meanwhile I continued to write poetry. I also wrote a book about prison “Life Goes On Inside Prison” to give people insight into what prison life is like. Taking my own life experiences of inner city living I wrote a book about living in the inner city. I continued to pen new poems and ultimately have wrote 9 books of poetry. Lastly I wrote my autobiography while in prison. I wrote it over a decade ago and never published it until now.
I always had a dream of starting my own publishing company and “Mind Diamonds” best describes my mission in the publishing arena. So thank you for the support and please order my books. I also do motivational speaking as well. I ghost write books also. To book me or reach out to me contact me at:
