Urban Fiction is Real Life

Soooo I’m a published author. I started writing my first book over 10 yrs ago, but the majority of the time was spent writing the final chapter. As it turns out, life and the observation of life had to happen in order for me to finish.
The finished product (Behind Closed Doors) is my attempt to address many of the issues that we are currently facing in the urban community. Like most urban fiction novels, the perils of urban living (drugs, prostitution, child abuse/neglect, crime, police brutality, Black on Black crime, etc.) are discussed at length; however, my ultimate goal is to explore the underlying causes.

In a perfect world, we wouldn’t have drug dealers and drug addicts wouldn’t exist. Women wouldn’t sell their bodies and every child would have both parents. Kids would find value in education as opposed to tennis shoes, the neighborhood kingpin would NOT be a role model and ghettos would become obsolete in the absence of poverty…

The love of money is the root to all evil, but poverty and lack are its greatest companions.
So how did we get here? How did we allow the propaganda of superficial wealth and self hatred to consume an entire generation???
