1. What is your story "A Gangsta in the White House" about?
A Gangsta In The White House is fiction. Set in Portland, Oregon and Washington,
D.C., the story of Jamal David Evans, America's second African-American President.
He is no Barack Obama, in looks, style, substance or motivation. And he is no friend of
the American public that had so enthusiastically voted to make him the most powerfulman on the planet; he has one goal – divert billions from the U.S. Treasury to secret
Jamal David Evans… He had one motive, one goal – Get money! If it don’t money, it don’t make $en$e!
LaShawn Evans…She wanted to be First Lady and get the last laugh at her high school class, who had ridiculed her for being poorly dressed; it was a life-long grudge turned into passion; her husband’s political success would be her revenge.
Robert Parker (a.k.a. Slam)…Jamal Evans’ best friend from childhood,
a multimillionaire drug kingpin who will do whatever is necessary to ensure the Senator wins the presidential election. His connection with the drug lords south of the border
and 3-billion dollars in drug money give Jamal Evans the financial edge.
2. What do you want your readers to come away with after reading your novel?
More than anything, I’d like readers to be entertained, to have a good read.
3. When did you become interested in politics?
In the 1960s, during the highly charged civil rights movement – Malcolm X had been
assassinated in 1965; Martin Luther King Jr. and Bobby Kennedy assassinated in 1968. I thought it was time for me to become more aware of the world I lived in, the “outside,”
as I was incarcerated during all three events.
