Bryan Gibson

I've two paperbacks available on Amazon.com (as well as two E-books): Karma Incarnate: The best of Foolkiller (ISBN 141961990X) and Malefectus and Lesser Tales (1419654543). Both books are classified as literary fiction.

Why did I become a writer? Put simply, it was a calling; I had something to say and preferred to say it via the written word. Thank you.

Bryan Gibson is a Harlem native who currently resides in Jersey City. In 1998 he attended the Hurston/Wright Workshop in Richmond, Virginia, and in 2002 was featured in Gumbo: An Anthology of African American Writing, where he received high praise from Publisher's Weekly.

Cheris Hodges

My name is Cheris Hodges, the ISBN of my novel, "Let's Get It On" is
ISBN-13: 9780758219763. This is a romance novel with a hint of suspense.

Why did I become a writer? I became a writer because at an early age, I learned that I could say things on paper and not get in trouble for it. It grew into a passion and since 2001, I've been weaving stories together. I'm very excited about "Let's Get It On." It combines two things that I love--romance and football.

Katrina L. Burchett

The title of my debut novel is "Choices" - ISBN 978-0-9793905-0-0. "Choices" is a Young Adult Novel.

Why did I become a writer?   I've always been shy and reserved, so since childhood I have expressed myself better with the written word. I began with writing poems, short stories and plays way back in the day, and now, doing my best to use my God-given talent for His glory, I have published a book that I believe will be a blessing not only to teenagers, but anyone who reads it.

 It is available on Amazon, so please feel free to check out the very positive reviews. And, also, thanks for caring about the new authors :)

In My Own Words:  I am a wife and a mother of two sons, the oldest in grad school and the youngest a college freshman. I published my first YA novel, Choices, and named my small company after my teenage niece, Kapri. I like books and movies that evoke emotion, so when I wrote Choices I wanted my readers to be moved in the same way. It is an emotional, thought-provoking read. My thanks goes out to every person who supports me by purchasing my novel. I also appreciate it very much when a reader takes the time to submit a review, and I'm more than happy to do the same for other authors.

V. L. Green

My name is V. L. Green. The name of my book is "When Destinies Meet"
 ISBN 1419659332.  My book is Christian Romance.

Why did I become a writer? I became a writer because I had a story to tell. I grew up on black literature where we were either victims, struggling, or morally corrupt. We (AA) never had an age of innocence in literature. I have purposed in my heart to give us that. I think we deserve it!

We are a multifaceted people. I think all of our story should be told -- not just part of it. I also have a book of poetry --"Reflections" -- ISBN 156315255x.

Location: Mississippi
Anniversary: August 15

Biography:
I am the third of seven children. I was born in Mississippi. I've traveled quite a bit. I am the mother of five, and my husband and I have been married for over thirty years.

Interests
I love caring for my family. I like to write -- no surprise there. I like to do motivational speaking. I especially like working with and talking with our youth.

Zangba Thomson

Title: Three Black Boys
ISBN: 9781419696466
Website: www.bongminesentertainment.com
Genre: African-American Fiction

Why I became a writer: I produced and recorded a track by the name of Three Black Boys; people always use to ask me, "the song is hot; but what was the boys' reason for committing the robbery? Answering that question led me into becoming an author. I began writing the first draft at the time while I worked for an elderly couple from Baisley Projects. My duty was to drive them where they needed to go; super market, hair salon, etc.

On a couple of occasions, I drove them to Calvary Hospital, in the Bronx to visit their youngest daughter who was dying of Cancer. A week after our last visit, she sadly passed away. That's when her father looked me in the eyes and made an important statement, which I felt the world needed to know. With teary eyes, he spoke slowly and lowly. I comforted the bereaved man standing over his wife sitting in her wheelchair. I looked well into the matter and felt responsible to address this issue the best way I knew how, through story telling.

Da'Neen Hale

Greetings all! My name is Da'Neen Hale and I am the author of the newly released novel Possession which is published by Shannon Holmes Communications Media. The genre of my book is Urban Fiction.

Why did I become a writer?  I became a writer because it is my passion, but I also became a writer because I believe some of the mistakes I've made so far in my life should be shared with others in hopes of maybe opening the eyes of some my readers that just because bad things happen to us it doesn't mean we have to live there for the rest of our lives.

My novels promise to be fast paced page turners that not only entertain but leave you breathless at the end and pondering some serious questions of your own.
