I discovered my love for writing in the English department at GSU. Ms. Rebecca Lewis taught me the principles of writing and Dr. Ann Williams motivated me to write with a purpose. The Rebecca Lewis & Ann Williams Literary Award is established to commemorate their contributions to my personal journey.
The Behind Closed Doors Series is my attempt to address many of the issues that we currently face in the urban community. Like most urban ﬁction novels, the perils of urban living (drugs, child abuse/neglect, police brutality, Black on Black crime) are discussed at length; however, my ultimate goal is to explore the potential causes and eﬀects.
