Although I love to write urban stories since I grew up in urban America and have many stories to tell from my experience, I also love to write about things that I fantasize about. Therefore I plan to venture off into other genres, from paranormal romance, to science-fiction & fantasy.

Author Biography

Author Jimmie L. Rich's talent for writing was first discovered when he was only 11 years old when his 6th grade teacher had everyone in his classroom write a one-page speech. Afterward he was shocked to hear that his speech had been picked out from everyone in the 6th grade, and possibly even the entire school. He was then given the opportunity to read his speech in front of the entire school at the upcoming 8th grade graduation. But although his talent for writing had been discovered at the age of 11, it would be a few years before he actually realized the true beauty of being able to write stories. Reason being is because of his terrible upbringing in which his father was deceased, and his mother raised him with a hatred she had for his father. That along with the fact that he was raised in poverty only added to the hardships of having to grow up in some of the most dangerous neighborhoods America has ever seen. In the process, his talent for writing had been put to a halt as he slowly but surely found himself falling into the temptations of the streets. After almost losing his life as well as his freedom to an 18-to-life prison sentence he decided that it was time for him to figure out and focus on what he believed to be his purpose in life, which is to be a writer. Since then he has written a few books and plans to release many many more. His book "216 Ways To Die", tells true stories about the way people died within the 216 area code of Cleveland, Ohio where he grew up. Author J.L.Rich also has plans to release a few auto-biographies that will tell not only his stories of the temptations of the streets, but also the unusual relationship he had with his mother. He cherishes his gift for writing, and even more-so cherishes the freedom to be able to do so. He looks forward to sharing his life experiences as well as his imaginations with the world! "Stay Tuned!"
