Kevin M. Weeks was born the second of four children in West Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He spent most of his youth in and out of foster homes and juvenile detention centers. Deep inside he always knew he would be accomplished, especially when he was chosen to be in a documentary for the Boys Village of Maryland, a youth facility of the Maryland State Department of Juvenile Services. During his twenties, Kevin M. Weeks was reunited with his father. This is where many of the wise quotes and old school sayings for his novels are derived. Unfortunately, he and his father went their separate ways. Years later, Kevin M. Weeks spent countless hours researching the publishing industry in order to become a self-published author, even though he is currently serving time at the Georgia Department of Corrections in Atlanta, Georgia.
In addition to his new found career as an author, Kevin M. Weeks also mentors young men coming into the prison system about setting goals and creating a roadmap in order to follow their dreams.
