Kept is a memoir that recounts the defining moments in my journey from life in a middle-class African-American family tightly bound by duty and God to a life of prostitution, drugs, and crime, and ultimately to the life I lead now- defined by faith, community, and family. It's a journey that stretches from California through Arizona and Texas and on to Memphis. This is not just another story about a woman who loses her way and finds redemption in the end. Even in cheap hotels, dens of drug lords, and prison cells, I always spoke to God. My faith sustained me, as did my love for the man who traveled this broken path along with me. That love despite extraordinary obstacles, became the foundation for the rest of my life.

About the Author

Delphine Mitchell-Brown grew up in a loving home where both parents were actively engaged in the welfare of their children. She was on the path to greatness but her direction was veered by drug use. Brown recounts that during that time she didn't know how to channel her feelings of fear or guilt or shame, so she moved on to something a whole lot easier - substance abuse. She then got incarcerated. Now looking back she doesn't regret her past anymore. She has accepted that it happened and now she is trying to move forward. She figured that she'll use her past experience to help others so that they wouldn't make the same mistakes she did. She began doing so with her family. Brown is happily married to Richard "Rocky" Brown and has three children.
