Prisoner Bio

I am a Christian with a good sense of humor. I have a positive outlook on life regardless of my 

situation. 

I enjoy sports, outdoor activities, movies, and reading. 

Looking for someone to write to help pass the time and maybe encourage them in their lives by sharing my story.  It might help someone not to make the same mistake as I did in life.

Prisoner Bio


I don’t know how this is supposed to go, and I don’t write very well. So, here I go!!
I’m 36 years old, I have hazel eyes, brown hair, and 5”11, and weigh 230 pounds. I’m a country boy from Abilene, Texas. I’m looking for a pen pal between the ages of 20 & 46 years old.
I have a good personality and a good sense of humor. I’m very loyal, faithful, but that is just me.
I like to fix old hot rods, enjoy cooking homemade food, and listen to all music.
I love the outdoors and special time with my family.
You can feel free to ask me anything because maybe one day I would love to start my own family, because, I do not have any kids of my own.
I would like to put a smile on your face every time you get a letter from me. Ok, I like to be funny too.
I’m currently serving a 20-year sentence and I have six years done on it now. The reason I’m locked up is that I’m very loyal. So, now I’m just trying to find myself a lifemate. So, just for now a pen pal, if you would like to you can send me a picture.

Prisoner Bio

I’m a man that’s chosen to thrive and take advantage of my situation versus the alternative. No downtime for this guy. Outside of my prison H-VAC job---- you can find me either working on my sixth manuscript or exercising to stay in peak physical condition.

​I’m a bit of an artist and barber as well. The latter is more to pass the time, the former, however, are a lifestyle I call my own.

If you’re interested in writing a guy who lived, and yet discovered his life is yet only beginning, then let’s become friends. Upon my release I’ll be starting from the ground up----- friends and associates included. I love music, enjoy dancing, cruising, the pool, the lake, the outdoors, working with my hands, and playing cards.

Prisoner Bio

Hello there ladies!! My name is Ronnie J Fulton. I’m 47 years old. Born in the month of August so that makes me a Leo!! I’m born and raised in the Dallas / Fort Worth area. I’m posting an ad on this website for one reason only, and that is to find the perfect one for me. I’m looking for a strong-minded woman who can make good decisions in life.

Just looking for some type of direction upon release so I won’t fall into the same path that got me here. So, if you are serious about life, then I’m the one for you.

I’m also willing to relocate to where ever that may be if necessary. So please, if you like what you see, then please contact me A.S.A.P. All I’m asking for is just one chance.

The fastest way to contact me is to e-mail me. You can do that by going to jpay.com and downloading the app from your phone. You must type in my TDC #02107049. I will remove my ad from this website when I meet the right one. I’m not in this for any type of game. If you decide to write me the old fashion way, you must use blank paper without any lines on it.

I’m really looking forward to hearing from you. I can’t wait to meet you. If you are really serious about me, let me know. Hope to hear from you soon! Ronnie

Prisoner Bio

Richard Spraggins has always had a creative side, he began at a very young age. His focus was on art for so many years. He expressed himself primarily through his artwork.

Recently he found an overwhelming desire to write. He subsequently rediscovered things about himself that he had hidden deep within. 
We often hide who we are to make others comfortable.  Then we get so comfortable being lost; it takes something or someone special to motivate us to find our true selves.

​The writing was just the catalyst for rediscovery that Richard needed. He is changing his world by using his time wisely by writing books and attending college. Richard wants to prove that mistakes do not determine your destiny.
Come and experience Richard’s writing and allow him to pull you into his world.

Prisoner Bio

I spent nine years in the top 10 worst prisons in the country.
For me, it’s easy not to get stabbed or raped. The hard part is maintaining a positive mindset in the midst of such a negative and violent environment.

What I seek is true friendship and I need someone to be my journal. I’m not perfect nor am I looking for the perfect person.  I have over sixty tattoos, two teenage kids, love reading more than anything.

I’m a freelance writer who also writes music, exercises regularly, enjoys getting to know new people and due to circumstances have acquired a great sense of humor. Having worn shackles from my wrist to my ankles I have learned they can’t confine my mind and so I am freethinking, free-spirited and open-minded. I am not easily intimidated so anything you want to ask me is fine and will be answered truthfully. With that said I have a question of my own. Living in a free world, what brings you to this site?

Prisoner Bio

I’m a laid back hardworking person who loves music, movies, and traveling.
I’m looking for a good friend with the great possibility of more.
I’ve worked all my life and I don’t have a very bad criminal history.
I would like a second chance at trust, love, and friendship.
I won’t waste your time nor mine. Write me.
Thank you,
Willie Shaw

I enjoy reading and I write as a therapeutic mechanism. My favorite books ae urban novels, detective, murder mysteries, spy and thriller novels.
I also find comfort in both listening to music and watching TV whenever I can.  Unfortunately for me the luxury of doing the two is one I do not have at the moment. So, to pass time I just workout.

Prisoner Bio

Before we go any further please read and answer this poem.
Let Me Be The One…

Let me be the one who…
Touches your heart and not leave I broken
Makes love to you mentally as well as physically
Loves you even when time get hard
Has your back even when you’re wrong
Will be your air when you can’t breathe
Will be your heart to pump your blood
Understands it’s 100 – 100 not 50 – 50
Says what I mean and mean what I say
Will go through hell and high water to put a smile on your face.

If this is what you are looking for, then write me and let’s start anew journey / life. I am a guy who has been through things you could only imagine and see on t.v. Despite it all I am still here standing. Why? Because I am strong minded and strong willed. I love challenges. It brings out the best in a person. If you can truly understand / relate to this then search no further.

Prisoner Bio

I am lonely and looking for a friend. I am funny, loyal, down to earth, and spiritual.
I love making people laugh. I enjoy reading and helping out others I am smart but naïve, strong but vulnerable at times. I am engaging and fun to know. My mistakes do no define me, but what I’ve learned from them does. Say Hello

Prisoner Bio

I am a very outgoing country boy. I would love to have someone to spend time with while going through this difficult time in my life. I really need a good friend, someone I could maybe build something with over time.

Prisoner Bio

I am a writer and interested in improving educational opportunities in prison for every prisoner.
Though incarcerated on death row, this has not prevented me from seeking to help others learn and changing the narrative told about people in prison on death row. I do this by blogging about life in prison and living with a death sentence at www.beyondsteeldoors.com
I am also an avid fan of science fiction and fantasy novel and RPGs

Prisoner Bio

Sometimes it's hard to find that special someone to whom you can really connect with... not just on a personal level, but on an emotional one as well. That especially seems to be the case when it comes to my situation.

I’m looking for someone to look past my circumstances and take a chance on me to find the best in me.

I'm very open-minded and I like to enjoy everything that life has to offer. You'll never know what's out there unless you open up your world to it... and that's exactly what I'm doing here.

If you'd like to learn more about me, please feel free to send me a few lines and introduce yourself!
I welcome every letter with an open mind and heart. So, don’t be shy! Maybe I’ll hear from you sometime soon?!

Prisoner Bio

I’m easy to get along with and tend to be a goofball sometimes. Very loyal to people I care about. Nobody is perfect, so I hope not to be judged by past mistakes. I love to read and listen to music. I have a daughter named Bonnie. Not really sure what I’m looking for in a pen pal so, I guess you’ll have to surprise me. I guess someone to help make my time in here easier. Someone that has a sense of humor and enjoys life.

Prisoner Bio

Refusing to accept that my life is ruined or wasted, I continually challenge myself. I’ve finished school and taken a couple collage classes. I find comfort in my art work. Making small posters and creating the perfect cards. It would be amazing to show and share my artwork with others. I long to correspond with a strong minded woman who would like to share thoughts and feelings about life and possibly get to know me like no one ever has. I’m not looking to play mind games. A compassionate friend who wants to write a man that once stumble but didn’t fall. 

Prisoner Bio

I love to have conversation about real life issues that we live day by day. I consider myself as funny and I’m really a humble man. I’m really good at giving advice, really just my opinions. I would really like to meet someone so we can pass time and let the time tell where this can take us. People have found love in strange places.

I love most sports, drawing and above all else meeting new people. I am a bit shy and awkward at the beginning of getting to know someone. I believe honesty is the only way to truly build a friendship. I am not looking for romance and I would like to get to know someone who is serious about getting to know me. 

Prisoner Bio

Solace, I am Versatile.
I don’t put limits or expectations on any who choose to write, if you want to simply pass the time that’s cool, maybe you want to compare life stories. Maybe you want a different perspective on things or maybe you want a confidant who isn’t in your social circle. I fit the bill for all the above and then some. True I am but one person, but a man of many faces. Life is full of surprises, maybe you’ll surprise me at mail call. Know that precious metals and stones are but a few things found in the darkest places on earth. To learn more please write.

Prisoner Bio

It’s fairly simple for me to use praiseworthy attributes to describe myself in order to convince other people that I’m charming, endearing and worthy of being embraced and befriended. However, no one would truly know if I’m honest, loyal, trustworthy, kind, respectful, or innocent, unless the time is taken and an effort is made to know who I really am. It can be difficult to make room in the heart in order to welcome a prisoner. However, sometimes it’s worth the risk to dare and take a chance in trust. For now, I’m just Mubaarak – a prisoner. 

Prisoner Bio

After two decades on death row. I will say that my personality is unique as I am quite open minded on my outlook about my life and life in general. I am a Mississippian. So, I am easy going, enjoy laughter, inside, and serious talks. My goal is to remain socially connected mentally to the prison and the outside societies. I like reading and discussing history, writing, meditation and cardio exercising.
