“I’m originally from Los Angeles. My Mother is from Harlem, New York, and my father is from Alexandria, Louisiana. We moved to Dallas in the late seventies to start a new business, but things didn’t work out for my parents and they divorced when I was eight.

Growing up in a single-family home, where I was the oldest of my mother’s three kids, things were difficult. I gravitated toward gangs and crime. And it wasn’t until I was faced with going to prison and losing my friend to a senseless murder that I turned my life around. I found my calling to write.

I went back to school and studied creative writing and liberal arts at Mountain View College. It was there I found my unique voice and style. To tell crime stories from a deeper, more emotional place. To put love and passion in my stories and have endings with a twist. Then I wrote a short story called ‘Troubled Waters’ and submitted it to a reader’s website called Timbooktu. They liked it, and I was the featured author for that month. I followed that up with my first book, When a Good Will Goes Bad, then The Hands of Love, and next was Meet Mr. Wright.”
