About the Author:

Sue Ellen Allen is a contradiction in appearance. Former University of Texas grad, former educator, former business owner, former community leader, former inmate at Arizona State Prison...current activist. She serves as chief visionary for Gina's Team, an organization that brings educational programs and speakers into prison to inspire and empower the inmate population to strive for a better future and a successful reentry. GINA s Team is named for her prison roommate who died there of medical neglect. Gina s death was the defining moment of Sue Ellen s journey, giving her life a new purpose and passion. In prison, under harsh conditions, she survived advanced breast cancer and learned to turn pain into power. She also learned that not all prisons are behind bars and that every journey has a purpose. Overcoming incredible odds, she found her purpose and now works with prison officials, legislators, and interns from Arizona State University to serve the forgotten population behind bars so that upon their re-entry to society, they will join our community as positive, contributing members. The author of The Slumber Party from Hell, a memoir about her prison journey, Sue Ellen was awarded the Dawson Prize in Memoir in the 2009 Prison Writing Contest for PEN American Center. Her writing was also included in Serving Productive Time by Tom & Laura Lagana, authors of Chicken Soup for the Prisoner's Soul. Additionally, many of her poems have been published in Cosmopolitan magazine.

Review:

The Slumber Party from Hell places hearts and souls on the often faceless, forgotten people behind bars. No matter which side of the razor wire we re on, this compelling book inspires us all to face our fears to overcome the obstacles in our lives. Tom Lagana, co-author, Chicken Soup for the Prisoner's Soul and Serving Productive Time --Raul Sanchez Monreal, Jr.

The memoir you hold in your hand is a labor of love, a healing process, a gift to the women that are still behind bars, and a gift to us, about a subject not spoken about enough in society: the central role that prisons, and the attendant political and economic structures that make their presence seem inevitable, natural in fact, play in society; the large amounts of money that are spent to incarcerate rather than educate, to punish rather than rehabilitate, to dehumanize rather than heal. ...Alan Eladio Gomez, PhD, Borderlands Scholar and Assistant Professor, School of Justice and Social Inquiry, Arizona State University --Alan Eladio Gomez, PhD, Borderlands Scholar and Assistant Professor, School of Justice and Social Inquiry, Arizona State University

In The Slumber Party from Hell, Sue Ellen Allen will take you to the actual scenes behind the prison wire so that you live her experiences. At the same time, you are allowed to reflect on the lessons at the end of each chapter of this valuable book. Sue Ellen uses her tragedy to elevate human consciousness through gritty, visceral writing that allows our senses to become involved. She lives her motto. She has been there, done that and now challenges us to help the next person suffering. ....

Early on the morning of December 12, 2002, I arrived at Perryville prison in a cold, white MCSO (Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office) van with several other women. Besides my battle with breast cancer, I’d been up all night in the jail in a freezing cold concrete holding cell, and I was tired, anxious, and numb. I had no idea what was in store for me. It turned out to be an unforgettable journey, one that filled me with fear, sorrow, and joy. I met people I never would have in my previous life and experienced things I would not have believed possible. Some were horrific, demeaning, and inhumane; some were wonderful.
