About the Author

In 2002 K’wan hit the scene with his debut novel Gangsta, under Triple Crown Publications. It was the first novel released by the budding house and would eventually become the building block for what is now a multimillion dollar company. What started as a therapeutic release went on to become a part of urban-lit history and an Essence bestseller, as well as drawing rave reviews overseas.

After penning his second novel, Road Dawgz (2003), K’wan drew the attention of St. Martin’s press. The literary powerhouse quickly signed K’wan to a multi-book deal, the first of which being Street Dreams (2004). In 2008 he received the Black Author of the year award from Black Press Radio for the novella Blow.

K’wan’s titles also include:

Hoodlum (2005), Eve (2006), Hood Rat (2006), Flexin & Sexin: Sexy street tales vol. 1 (2007), Blow: A G-unit novella (2007), Still Hood (2007), Gutter (2008), Section 8 (2009), Flirt: An anthology (2009), From Harlem with Love: A short (2010), The Leak: A Hood Rat Short (2010) Welfare Wifeys (2010), Gangland (2011), Eviction Notice (2011) and the highly anticipated Animal which will be released under Cash Money Content in 2012. K’wan is also the author of several dark fantasy novels written under a pseudonym.

K’wan has been featured in Vibe, Pages, King, Felon, Big News, The Library Journal, Entertainment Weekly, The New York Press, Clutch and most notably Time Magazine, to name a few. He was also interviewed by MTV News for a feature on Hip-Hop fiction, and a guest on Power 105’s morning show as well as NPR (national public radio). In addition to being an accomplished author, K’wan is also a motivational speaker, mentor to at risk children.

The Harlem native currently resides in New Jersey where he is working on his next novel. Please visit his website:

K'wan did it again with this one! Most of your questions are answered but there is still a few that you will have to wait for 10/2 to see it unfold. I am speechless still with how everything came together and who is who in this one. I am truly in loved with a man named "G" and I highly reccommed you jump on this before Animal drops. Soon you will understand why we are #TEAMANIMAL. K'wan, don't let anyone tell you that you didnt do the damn thing because your fam is only a phone call
