 Animal Instincts: The Urban Jungle is a collection of creative

rabbit hole of revenge and murder. There are no
happily-ever-after's in these stories. Join the Jackson rabbits as
they navigate their way through the urban jungle using their Animal

Sly stood admiring himself in the mirror, his tailormade suit with the rabbit fur on the collar.
‘Man, I’m a smooth dude,’ he thought.
And that he was—a slick-talking, hard-hustling, leopard that had been in the game a long time. He’d started in the game as a “lookout” for a numbers racket a long time ago. That numbers racket was also run by dogs, but of a different kind. Larry Fox was the head of the numbers syndicate at that time, which was a family business that had been protected by brutal force. 
Larry had a daughter, Groovy, who was one raw fox. Her dad had shown her the ropes because he knew one day he would be passing it down to her. She was a student of the game and had studied well. Groovy had always been a real one, nothing fake about her, and man could she dress. That was a trait she’d picked up from her dad, who’d always told her, “Sugar, always dress for the position you want, not the one you’re in.” That had stuck with her.
Sly wasn’t always so sly, on the other hand. His days as a lookout had come as a result of his humble beginnings. Sly’s family had been poor. A project cat since birth, all he’d ever wanted was to make a better way for his family. His mom was a hard-working maid
who’d become a single mother to three children, with Sly being the oldest. It was rumored that Sly’s dad, “Big Sly”, was murdered going to get food for the family, and eventually, had been made into a purse and other items.

S.L. Jackson, an Urban Fantasy Author, from Inkster, MI, who now resides in metro-Detroit first entered the publishing scene in 2019 with the novella ‘Animal Instincts: The Urban Jungle’. He’s an auto worker, a community activist skilled in the art of urban jungle survival, a podcaster, and a former entertainer and entertainment education provider. You can always find him reading, watching, and listening to interviews, helping others achieve their goals, and busying with anything that challenges his creativity. “Writing is my need to escape,” Jackson says. 

Even though his first novella ‘Animal Instincts: The Urban Jungle’ is considered an Urban Fantasy he prefers not to place himself in a box and stunt the growth of his creativity by limiting himself to one genre. He’s the creator of the hashtag #respecturbanauthors. He’s been nominated for several awards that include Feathered Quill Awards, Ippy/Elit Awards, Top Shelf Magazine Awards, and Top Shelf Book Cover Awards. His podcast “The Connected Experience” is a cultural and lifestyle show. 

Jackson is currently working on a comic book and cartoon series for ‘Animal Instincts: The Urban Jungle’. His plans also include more books, awards, and his books placed in libraries across the world.
