About the Author
Educated. Employed. Existing. Jerome Dickens doesn’t call himself a writer. He prefers the term, Realist. He never fails to put a magnifying glass on the issues that most people forget about. His brash, direct, and blunt approach highlights the realities of life. He believes ideas are always following where you're not looking and intends to share everything he finds. Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. The city taught him how to live, the techniques of independence and survival, and the necessity of being true to himself, while everyone around him was constantly searching for the next, “Me.” Some of his influences are his elders, underground music, soulful classics, and social observations. For him, everything must be aligned with truth, no matter the consequence. His writing is equally a bridge between this and his musical favorites MF DOOM and Ghostface Killah, liked because of their rawness for speaking up and not being scared to say what needs to be said. Writing is his outlet, truth, and way of putting claim to what should be said. His writing will pierce your ego, attack your emotions, and drive your intellect.
