Shawn Christopher is a Texas native who is currently pursuing a masters degree in Counseling and simultaneously spends his time writing urban fiction novels. Shawn has been inspired by many different African American authors and describes his literature as "a testimony to the 90's era of book creations with a street aesthetic. "Homie. Lover. Friend." is his first urban fiction novel with influences from his generation's idea of the African American culture and life experiences. He hopes to continue his writing with Delphine Publications with a spin-off to this book named "Jaded" and its anticipated sequel "Young. Wild. Free." Shawn Christopher is also involved in an upcoming podcast with co-host Luvenia Hankins.
