About the author (2011)

One of twelve children, Alexander Gonzales grew up in Fort Worth, Texas excelling in sports and attending church with his mother and eleven siblings. Having once dreamt of playing for the Dallas Cowboys, a series of bad choices and encounters with the wrong people led him spiraling down a path he wouldn’t wish on any man. During the 1980’s, Alexander Gonzales was introduced to the dangerous underworld of narcotics as the now infamous “Felix the Cat.” After living much of his life on the extreme edge of drugs and related crimes, he inevitably was sent to prison. During his years of incarceration, Gonzales pondered the idea of writing his memoirs. With the encouragement of his fellow inmates he wrote his story “The Amphetamine King.” In 2010, nearly three decades after the start of his downfall, Alexander Gonzales was officially ordained a Minister. He currently aspires to educate today’s youth on the dangerous perils of crime and drugs.
