Cash was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio but lived most of his life in Atlanta, Georgia. He decided to start writing fiction while incarcerated at a state prison in Georgia. His style is gritty, raw, and real. Even from the depths of confinement he has an imagination that's in overdrive.
His debut novel Trust No Man was released in 2009, and the Trust No Man trilogy went on to reach hood classic status. It remains one of the most respected street novels in the industry. Trust No Man 1,2&3 and Bonded By Blood were all highly acclaimed releases by Cash.
Since breaking on the scene, Cash has since formed his own publishing company Lock Down Publications. Under LDP the author's star has shined brighter than ever with critically acclaimed novels such as A Dirty South Love, Shorty Got A Thug, Trust No Bitch 1,2&3, and Thugs Cry 1&2, Til My Casket Drops, and Restraining Order 1&2.
Cash is presently in his 26th year of incarceration but he remains strong and he strives to teach through the power of his pen.
"I write what has been termed 'fictional realism'. I give it to my readers raw and uncut, just like it goes down in every day life. I feel a responsibly to keep it one hundred. I don't write fairy-tales, and it's never my mission to simply entertain the readers, I write with a message. "Therefore, sometimes you'll need a box of tissue when you read my novels," he says without apology.
"Other times I'll make you rejoice over the way certain characters persevere. But you'll never be left feeling indifferent about my books," he promises.
From within his cell he writes to change his legacy to one that his loved ones can be proud of. "I want them to know that my desire to rise above the circumstances cannot be suffocated."
