Meet the Author

Raymond Francis is a Street Lit author born October 14th, 1981 in New Brunswick, NJ. He was raised in Willingboro, later moved around parts of Pennsylvania including Philadelphia and is currently in Anderson, SC.
He describes his style as simple enough for a fool to understand, but complex enough for a genius to appreciate. Francis has an unconventional writing design where he usually incorporates himself as a character in his own books, though at sometimes in a not so obvious way. Francis' books read like a never ending puzzle with characters re-appearing in other works and always having a direct or indirect connection back to him. All of his works put together flow like a timeline of his life up until the current moment.

    This was a great book with so many twist and turns, full of interesting climaxes that had me rooting for the characters. Hopefully there is a second part because I want to see more from Hope
