As long as I can remember, I always saw myself performing on stage. I was born in Jamaica Queens, NY. My father left my mother while I was being born, so I had other influences to my manhood. I developed a bone for music at the age of five years old and as I began to grow older it became clear to me, that I wouldn't make it out of the hood to fulfill my dreams.
My mother lost one of her lungs to chronicle asthma and had to quit her day job, so I looked to the streets. My neighborhood was full of drugs and eventually I started carrying them at the age of eleven. By the age of fifteen, I was a dealer. I attended Andrew Jackson High School and my first semester there, I was sent upstate for two ounces of cocaine.
I lost a lot of friends to street life. I was married at the age of eighteen and destroyed my marriage. I became an alcoholic and depressed. I've been shot at and beaten half to death with a crow bar and gun. I went to jail in 1999 for three years. While I was there, I met Prodigal at a Bible study class. When we were released, we came home and formed Fulfillment Entertainment.
We have since, Became Ministers of the Word, and have won two Awards. The Sammy Award in Syracuse NY, and The Tiffany Award in the Bronx NY. It has been a long hard walk but God has brought us out. Please dont give up, on God, your Marriage, or making it in todays world, no matter how caotic it might seem. I am a Minister, a Gospel Rapper, A Father of seven, with three step kids, A motivater, and a Lover of Christ. I pray anyone who reads this, has a change accure in there life, and Blessings Follow.

MediaBistro's Morning Media Menu had a conversation with author Jamie Brenner about advice for writers looking to explore this newly crowded genre. An excerpt from Brenner: My first erotic novel came out two years ago. The landscape feels completely different.
