As seen on Yahoo. com NEWS!
Born in New Mexico to an abusive and promiscuous mother, Robert faced a life no child should endure. His mother’s tirades and a constant stream of men created chaos and confusion in his young life. It stole the most precious part of his youth and threw him into a miserable world he only navigated with the help of a loving grandmother and aunt.
In Asleep, Robert takes you into his devastating world, introduces you to his life horrors, and fills you with a subtle rise of hope. If you dare, take a ride with Paul and learn about his rough and tragic story, how he found solace in all the wrong places. The rawness and innermost thoughts will at times scare you, make you cry, and even elicit an occasional laugh or two.
Most importantly, it will inspire those who love a story about redemption and hope. It shows how one man rises above the horrible hand he was dealt with and uses that misery to better humanity—a truly remarkable journey.
