Fornication Volume One [NOOK Book]

Overview

My name is Portia and I am a hoe from a long line of hoes; however, unlike my family before me, I have turned pussy into a lucrative enterprise. My grandmother was an old school hooker who relied on a few regulars to supply her basic needs, and my mother was a cracked- out-trick who was killed by a junkie pimp in an alley way. I was there, five-years-old, cold, hungry and huddled near a dumpster. I watched him beat the life out of my mom for the twenty dollars she’d just made. I sat there for hours until the ...

Overview

My name is Portia and I am a hoe from a long line of hoes; however, unlike my family before me, I have turned pussy into a lucrative enterprise. My grandmother was an old school hooker who relied on a few regulars to supply her basic needs, and my mother was a cracked- out-trick who was killed by a junkie pimp in an alley way. I was there, five-years-old, cold, hungry and huddled near a dumpster. I watched him beat the life out of my mom for the twenty dollars she’d just made. I sat there for hours until the hunger pains forced me to move. I grew up in this ass-for-cash game. I’ve seen the best and survived the worst. I am the madam of an elite prostitution ring in the hood, and this is the story of how the ring was broken


Honey Williams aka Honey Dip is a former junkie trick turned call girl that secretly yearns for a relationship with her daughter and a chance at a normal life. She is tired of the game but doesn't want to turn her back on the prostitutes that saved her life and welcomed her into their family when nobody else wanted to be bothered. Just when she thinks things couldn't be anymore complicated, she falls in love with a man who is young enough to be her son and declared off limits by Portia


SEX, DRUGS, LIES, AND BETRAYAL... WELCOME TO THE NIGHT LIFE. YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED!

Meet the Author

I love the written word more than cooked food and that's saying a lot. I write because I have to(It's the only way to silence the voices). There is always a story going on in my head so if you see me in public I'll probably be scribbling furiously in a notebook.

Strawberry Mansion, my first novel, is semi autobiographical(I am Tabitha in the story). It was a very painful part of my life that I felt an overwhelming need to give voice to. I've changed a few things to protect the guilty, and add a bit of distance from myself to the story. I love that book. It's a sort of snapshot of my journey into adulthood. Although the characters are young, It's filled with adult content, bad language, sex drugs and rock and roll, you're gonna love it.

Begonia Brown, my sophomore novel, is street fiction at it's finest. I am very proud of this book. It is the hood as I recognize it, minus the glitz and glam... I pushed the envelope with this book. I felt free to tell ugly truths because the book isn't about me, It's about where I come from. Begonia Brown, although it was hard to write, is one helluva ride!

What else is there to say about me? I am a mom, a poet, a nurse, a playwright, a scifi geek, a lover of all things fantasy, a junk food junkie, and a facebook addict.

until next time
Julia

    Not bad

    I enjoyed the book, short very short but it did have some moments where i was shocked. I love the lust between the boy and the older woman, but his sister and her shoot first mentality was irking. I had to delete it from my nook because the cover was disturbing, but cant wqit for part 2.

    I took a chance with this purchase because I didn't really like

    I took a chance with this purchase because I didn't really like Strawberry Mansion, but I am glad I did! Awesome story that allows the reader to live in the story. I hope there is a sequel somewhere cause I would really like to know what happens to the characters. For less than 100 pages it was the best short story of it's genre that I have read in a long time. I interested in finding other projects from this author and I am excited to see what can be produced in a longer novel. Good job!
