ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Raised in a two-bed room apartment in the heart and in the grind of Brooklyn's Brownsville to a drug addicted mother and an alcoholic father with three siblings. Everyday became a constant struggle of survival. I quickly adopted and adapted to the ways of the streets. For me as a child just to except the hands that life had dealt me and to idly sit back while my less than poverty conditions due to my mother's addiction with her battle with Heroin in which sadly she lost to when I was 9 years old. I was forced to be a man-child before I was a teenager. I submitted to the very environment in which I became a product of.

During my years of growing, I've developed a strong perception of my surroundings and quickly realized that I was able to shape and mold my own destiny. Instead of waiting for opportunity to knock at our door, I being the oldest male child in the household grabbed the bull by the horn. In the early 80's I took to what most of the young in the hood looked to as an out. 'Da Game!' Imagine playing 'Da Game', a game of life and earth at such an early age. Where as survival for young black males are rare. I took to this 'Game' like a bat out of hell. School was the last thing on my mind. I wanted what Da Game had to offer and to me going and achieving this through the right channels wasn't an option. The streets monopolized my time; I had no time for school, friends or family. Battered and abused psychologically, I thought I knew how to play Da Game. I couldn't have been more wrong. There is no right way to play Da Game. I played and lost, but giving all praise to Allah. I was one of the lucky ones. My arrest for distribution for crack cocaine was a hidden jewel, a diamond in the rough. During my incarceration my talents and inner beauty was faceted was made manifest. 8 years in Federal and State institutions because of my actions, during the numerous years of incarcerations my accomplishments are many. I became one with sobriety, God and the higher self receiving my G.E.D., self-respect, love of self and most of all I have once again gain the trust and respect of my family. A father of 8, 5 boys and 3 girls I knew I had to live by example. Especially after being away for so many years. I couldn't leave the prison's walls the same way I entered. I begin to evaluate my life and started a journal to one day tell a story to show my children what would be the out come of Da Game. My trials and tribulations, my journey through these institutions was the fire that fueled my expression and to animate my thoughts so when I put them on paper, the readers are able to feel and go through what the characters in the books are going through. I write from life experiences and from the heart. These aren't just fictional events but manifestations of a reality that we the young in urban America are forced to witness daily. There is No getting out of Da Game on top. There is no fairy tale ending to my books. The out is Jail, Institutions and Death. I do my best to tell it like it is, if I sugar coat the truth to sweeten it for the ears many of the young might think it's sweet and begin to glorify Da Game like they do when they see videos. The influence that the media have on our youth is overwhelming. I do my best to show the young the harsh reality of the street life. Teen pregnancy, AIDS and HIV is one of the leading causes of the decline of our communities, as well as drug addiction, crime, Alcohol abuse, Rape, Murder, child neglect, gang activities. These are the realities that I touch on in my books. By writing it gives me the open forum to be able to express these issues to a wide audience to the generation that needs it most.

I am currently home from prison, going through a transitional sage of reestablishing myself in society as a part of society. I'm in the Brooklyn halfway house and working. During my incarceration I have written 10 manuscripts. I was inspired to write after reading Antoine "Inch" Thomas' "Flower's bed". I was able to respect and bare mind that he's a man in the same struggle as I was going through and I haven't turned back yet.

I'm doing well, reunited with my family and still writing. Freedom is love. Not just being free from my jail cell but being free from prison that was manifested by 'Da Game!'
