About the Author

I'm the author of 11 published non-fiction books and novels (details of them are on http://clarenonhebel.com - click on Book List). The short novel 'Popcorn' is now FREE on Smashwords. Feel free to read and enjoy! More of my previously published books will soon be available as free ebooks on Smashwords too - look out for 'Far From Home' soon, true stories of the homeless and the 'homeless of heart.
I'm also the publisher and co-author of 'Survivor on Death Row' by Romell Broom, now published as an ebook.
This was a new venture for me. I had volunteered to write to Death Row prisoners in 2009 and the first one turned out to be Romell, who had just survived a two-hour execution attempt in Ohio's death chamber. The authorities intended to repeat the execution the following week.
For me, it was an eye-opener into the nature of the death penalty system. I read Romell's letters and visited him and others. I read accounts by lawyers such as Clive Stafford Smith OBE and by 'Dead Man Walking' nun Sister Helen Prejean, about the failures and flaws that can lead to innocent people being executed. I heard about executioners and prison governors and Ohio's former Attorney General, who now oppose the death penalty and testify that it harms everybody and benefits nobody, including victims' families.
Romell has always claimed he is innocent. But how do you prove it - when you live on Death Row?
It began to seem more than coincidence that Romell's assigned penfriend happened to be an author. Could his dream of telling his story to the world, and somebody listening, be a possibility?
Today Romell is still alive, still on Death Row, still asking for his case to be reviewed. His book is on Smashwords, and YouTube links are on his author page.
Whether you have fixed views on the death penalty, or whether you have never given it much thought, I encourage you to read 'Survivor on Death Row' and meet someone who knows.
