What are the titles of the urban fiction books you have had published?

October 27th

Tell us a little about yourself. How did you get started writing?

I’m a retired public transportation driver who always had a vivid imagination and a way with telling a story. I always wanted to challenge myself to write and publish a book. I’m new to the media world and I’m learning there is so much more than just having an exciting novel. I enjoyed writing my first book titled October 27th it was a challenge but I met it head on and am now looking forward to the next stage which is marketing and promotion.

Do you have a special routine when you write?

An empty quiet house seems to be when I can visually write. I try to picture the story in my mind and write according to what I picture. My analogy is if I can help the reader picture the words on the pages then I’ve done my job.

Tell us more about your last book, and what are you working on now?

I’m working on the sequel to October 27th. The book October 27th is about one day of the life of Jackson Murphy which is the main character. Jackson is a mid-west player who gives lessons in life love and money. Jackson is a ladies man and lives the life all men dream about. Even though Jackson is a player this novel tells a story within a story. It features a love story along side the story of Jackson Murphy this exciting book is a must read.

Who’s your favorite character from your books? Why?

It would have to be Jackson Murphy the main character of October 27th. He is a complete man in every since of the word. Not only is he a ladies man he’s smart, witty and always keeps a pocket full of money. Jackson has charisma and is outstanding in all his endeavors. That’s why I pick Jackson Murphy to be my favorite character.

What do you say to critics of street fiction?

Allow yourself to experience the story your reading, try to relate to the characters and try not to be critical until you’ve finished the book if at all possible. Open your mind and understand that life is not always peaches and cream for most people, and bad things do happen to good people. That why you read about violence, drugs, sex and money in 95% of all urban fiction books. Most authors are trying to shed light on the plight if our people and generation.

Why should librarians purchase street fiction for their collections?

Librarians should purchase street fiction because its just as good if not better than any other fiction book on the market. Urban fiction is just as entertaining as any other books out there. They offer a terrific story and very colorful characters. This is also making the material available to your readers who are avid urban fiction followers.

What advice do you have for new authors who hope to publish their urban fiction books?

My advice is to learn your craft and to be dilligent and steadfast in trying to achieve success. Work hard and try to be the best at what you do. If you don’t know something don’t be afraid to ask.

Any final words for fans of your books?

Enjoy the story and characters I’ve introduced to you. Allow yourself to get to know each one. Allow yourself to be enlightened and entertained also thank you for your support.
