Derrick Thomas


Writing has become a strong passion of mine. I realized early on in my life that I had a talent for story telling, but never in my wildest dreams did I think I would become an author. I've lived a street life for so many years, and now I have this grand opportunity to share my experiences with the world. Growing up in Birmingham, Alabama, has presented challenges, and being raised in the projects has made it that much more difficult, but despite facing many obstacles, I now have the necessary edge to tell many exciting stories. I often say, “If you can survive here, you can thrive anywhere.” I'm living proof that if you apply yourself and never succumb to defeat, your dreams can become a reality. God bless!
