GENRE:   Urban Fiction



Have you ever looked at your circle and wonder if the people in it are really down for you? That’s the question Ceasar constantly asks himself. In his eyes betrayal is a worse crime than murder, so think twice before crossing him.

Daquans’s was life was filled with what he considered to be normalcy. He is completely devoted to his wife, Aviana, and their son. But how deep does his loyalty run? Can he stay with Aviana when her past catches up with her, attempting to collect an unpaid debt?

Nolan is a prominent member of his family, but he’s also the only one who managed to make it out of the hood. His family looks to him for all type of assistance, including money, because he doesn’t have the heart to tell them enough is enough. Maybe it’s the guilt he feels from his secret that keeps him digging in his pocket for his loved ones.

Join us as we dive into these strangers lives to explore their inner circles. Lies will be told, secrets won’t be kept, and graves will have to be dug. Take this ride with us, and maybe you could answer the question, is blood thicker?



Daquan rushed back to his SUV. He grabbed his tablet and studied the app. It still said Aviana was at the school. There was nothing else to do but wait so that’s what he did. Thirty minutes passed and there was still no sign of Aviana. Just as Daquan got ready to pull off, someone came walking around the corner. At first, he paid them no attention. But they started towards Aviana’s car and instantly made Daquan watch them closer. He watched as they entered Aviana’s car. Although they dressed in all black Daquan knew that person wasn’t his wife.

The mystery person pulled off in Aviana’s car, leaving Daquan conflicted on what to do next. He quickly decided to follow Aviana’s Altima as it traveled through West Philly until it reached Upper Darby. The Altima pulled onto a small block and Daquan carefully followed. Soon the driver pulled into a driveway of a small house and shut the engine off. From down the block, he noticed the driver didn’t get out of the car. Slowly, he drove down the icy street, squinting his eyes at the Altima, hoping to get a look at the driver. No luck. There was no way he was going to be able to see inside with the combination of tint on the window and darkness outside. Instead, Daquan made a mental note of the house.


Author Interview 1. What would you consider to be your Kryptonite as an author? My kryptonite as an author has been when I have so many story ideas floating in my head and not enough time to get them on paper. If I could just get the basics on paper then it would make me feel better.

2. If you could tell your younger writing self, anything, what would it be?
I would tell my younger self relax and stay focused.
I’ve lost focus by stressing over project and consequently it delayed the release. 

3. If you could dine with any literary character, who would it be and why?
Carter Diamond from The Cartel because we were able to watch him grow and witnessed his struggles.
There’s no way he survived so much and don’t have wisdom to share. 

4. Did you want to be an author when you grew up? No, I wanted to be a pediatrician up until middle school. I got my first C in science and got discouraged.

After that I didn’t really know what I wanted to do. In high school my 9th grade English teacher helped me discover the passion for writing, but it wasn’t until 2014 that I knew this was what I wanted to do.
5. Have you ever met anyone famous? I met TLC and June’s Diary. My wife always tease me because she said I was smiling way too hard LOL.
