freeA few years ago, I showed up at my writing group with a chapter of my novel and something I wrote about myself. The group (the Rainwriters) had a lot to say about the novel chapter, most of it critical. But they loved the little thing I wrote about myself.

Week after week, month after month this went on. They liked the writing about myself, but had a lot of suggestions about the novel. One woman said, “Ed, your novel is okay, but these stories about yourself are your best writing ever.”

I believed her and put together my themed autobiography, Once a Priest, the theme being that priesthood continued in my life minus religion. the church and the roman collar. Even the title came from a man in the group. (A sub-text message is to find a good writing group or start one. It can make a big difference in your writing life)Once A Priest

Once a Priest is:

  • About a man finding himself, not a book about religion.
  • About carrying things of value from the church, not a book about being a priest.
  • About seeking the transcendent, the spiritual, not a book about what people said in confession.

Once a Priest is:

  • About Martin Luther King’s march from Selma to Montgomery
  • About a thirty-two year old man, a virgin, beginning to date
  • About running for political office – and winning
  • About getting married and having a family
  • About starting a business without knowing anything about the business
  • About moving to a new country
  • About teaching writing in prison
  • About living with cancer.

DystopiaDystopia, the Story of Prison  Non-fiction

By Mike Oulton and Ed Griffin

Today Mike Oulton owns a business and has been out of prison for four years. But this crime-free life was not always so. He was arrested in Mexico for importing drugs and spent two years in Mexican prisons and eight years in Canadian prisons. Which do you think he liked better? You’ll be surprised.

Ed Griffin entered prison to cause a revolution. He figured that if he taught men how to write, they would tell the story of prison and the walls would come tumbling down. That’s not what happened.
