Shon Hopwood

I am a thirty-two year old son of two wonderful parents and a native of Nebraska. While incarcerated, I have worked towards a college degree, become a self-taught paralegal and had two petitions granted review by the Supreme Court of the United States. I only recently attempted to write fiction. My hobbies include writing letters, playing basketball, and reading Amy Hempel. Released in the Fall of 2008, I plan to attend law school, finish my novel and spend copious amounts of time with family and friends.
