With his books 295 days and MOD poems, James V. Patterson gives us a rare look at life behind bars. It's a riveting account of his experience in the Orange County jail and the life-altering consequences of drinking and driving / DUI.
With his latest book But why? Patterson addresses the issues of alcohol, drugs and smoking from a child's point of view and encourages parents and teachers to join in the conversation.
Patterson has since devoted his life to advocate the prevention of DUI in America. He reaches out to America's youths by offering insights from his own personal experience related to the dangers and consequences of driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs.
