I’m a native Detroiter, raised amidst the harsh conditions of inner-city urban life where I saw the worst of dark times and the best of bright times. I went on to attend college, embarked on a career in Corporate America. Then one day, I was reflecting on how I used to enjoy the art of writing. So I decided to stop thinking about it and start writing again. It is the trilogy of my experiences in urban, academia and corporate life that provide the unique style in my literary expression, culminating in my debut novel, The Kokuran.
