After the death of an unarmed civilian at the hands of law enforcement authorities, anger is felt throughout a small community. Caught in the crossfire between balancing the color of his skin or his brothers in blue, the once astute cop becomes torn. In his attempt to remain steadfast to his duties as a police officer, the rookie cop's will for justice begins to crack. Burned and stigmatized by his community, Damien Howell begins to regret his decision to join the force shortly before he is executed by an unknown assailant. As details of his brutal and untimely death are made public, his countrymen have no choice but to mourn a forgotten son. The Colors of Howell challenges the all too familiar anti-police rhetoric common in today's society.

About the Author
Born in Washington, D.C., Nathaniel began journaling early throughout his teenage years, soon discovering his passion for writing. By the time he was twenty-two, the undergraduate student worked as a freelance writer while embarking on a brief stint in sports journalism [boxing] before becoming a self-published author. Thus far, Nathaniel has self-published eight short story titles under the non-fiction and creative fiction genre and has one novel currently in the works. In 2016, Nathaniel self-published Stroke of Luck, a short, tear-jerking e-Book about his wife's battle to overcome a cryptogenic ischemic stroke. The book was widely praised and went viral through social media, eventually earning the newlywed couple a segment on WJLAs Good Morning Washington, News Channel 8. Since the exposure, Nathaniel and his wife, together, volunteer their free time to speak publicly about their story, hoping to raise awareness of the onset of stroke in young adults. Away from writing, Nathaniel enjoys reading, sports, photography and fitness.
