More About the Author

My name is Nick Yarris. I wrote two books in the 10 years of being free from living on death row in America for 23 years. The first book is titled: 'Seven Days To Live', which is the story of my early life, combined with the prison ordeal that I faced before DNA tests proved me innocent in 2004.
The Second book is titled 'Seven Days To Love'. This is the story of my 10 years of being free in society, and the many challenging lessons which I have dealt with. I have gone through every imaginable extreme in life thus far. I do hope you will read this book and find all the many reasons why you appreciate this style of book.
I make my home in the UK and am happy to share my life here with my family.
Thank you, and I look forward to hearing from readers.

About the Author

Nick Yarris was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. In July 1982 he was sentenced to death in Delaware County, Pennsylvania, for a murder he did not commit.

He now lives in St Albans, England, with his wife Karen and baby daughter Lara Rebecca. He speaks all around the world against the death penalty.

5.0 out of 5 stars Survival of the Fittest - Mentally that is! 15 Sep 2009
I've just got back from holiday where this is one of the books I read and have to say it was one of those where I could not put it down. I wanted desperately to get to the end so that I knew what had happened yet didn't want it to end as was so engrossed with it. Nick has written the book well and it reads fluently. For anyone who is interested in real life it doesn't get much closer than this.

Nick is open and honest throughout about his reasons for being on death row and unlike Kenny Richey in Death Row Scot (also an amazing read)are totally his own doing and how simple it is to slip into the American Death Row and be an escapee from death row!!!

The book is simply a must for all to read even my Boyfriend who hates non-fiction got stuck in, read it in 2 days and really enjoyed it. As annoying as this might be I do not want to go into any specific details simply because I don't want to spoil things for those prepared to buy it and read it. I just don't think the book will disappoint anyone who has even the remotest interest after reading the synopsis.

An all round good, easy to read, honest and heartfelt book - enjoy :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful true story! 22 April 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
An incredible TRUE story about this poor guy whose sad experiences as a youth led to 21 years on death row. Sometimes it doesn't read smoothly as the style is not always consistent, but you will be left wondering how the American justice system can morally and legally use the word 'justice' in its title! Incredible.

Very moving true story, an inspiration to mankind of how someone who has endured such hell can come out the other end and remain dignified. A real-life equivalent of THE FUGITIVE (Dr Richard Kimble), and the real life facts are as dramatic as UNITED 93, ESCAPE FROM SOBIBOR and OPERATION DAYBREAK!
