Norman Mason, an artist, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, husband, veteran, ordained deacon, corrections worker, and writer, has completed his book “R.O.N.O.D. Relay Office Nuclear Operations Division”: a gripping and potent tale of a family’s affiliation with a street gang and one member’s road to enlightenment.
Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Norman Mason’s compelling work is a journey into the life of a gang member and the decision to make a significant personal change.
R.N.O.D. (Relay Officer Nuclear Operations Division) is a fictional depiction of street gang activities in major cities throughout the world. The backdrop of our story however, is the west-side of the city of Chicago, Illinois. The focus is mainly on one particular family, consisting of four young men and their sister. As you explore the fine details of their lives and their interaction with the people they meet along the way, keep in mind a single common denominator; which ask the question (What If)? Two of the brothers are sentenced to the Illinois state penitentiary, and as a result they bestow upon their younger brother total power and authority over all gang activity. Being given such power is not unusual among street gangs, as fathers and mothers, older brothers and uncles are incarcerated, leaving younger family members to pick-up the baton of the illegal drug trade in Americas ghettos, mainly, but other nations as well. Robert Brown (Bone) is given such power and rules the Royal Lords street-gang with the intelligence and skills passed down to him by his older brothers. Bone's loyalty to his brothers is unbending as time passes and he matures in age. One day after committing a major crime, he develops a distaste for the life he has inherited. After some soul searching, he stands up and declares his desire to do something different with his life. To his surprise, this revelation is met with very little resistance and support comes to him from many different directions. Bone also discovers as he travels down this road less traveled, that a new world opens up. His confidence abounds with newly discovered talents and skills as he makes new friends that are eager to assist him on this journey of enlightenment.
