Don’t Knock ‘Em ‘Til You Read Them: Urban Lit Novelists And 14 Books That Rival Reality Drama
A native of Staten Island, this woman has an imagination that’ll keep you flipping pages day in and day out. She first entered the writing world with Black and has since morphed into one of the best in the industry. Brown’s stories focus on triumphant women who overcome abuse, violence and defeat with a little dose of everything street, but she never fails to leave you with a positive message. White Lines is one of my all-time favorites. I don’t think anyone who’s ever read one of her stories will disagree when I say that she’ll definitely make you turn off the TV and jump into some reading.
