The author Dean Hamid was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. Over the past ten years he has been writing articles, commentaries, short stories and has managed to write five novels. Given the opportunity to correspond with published authors; it’s been said that his work swings toward what African Americans describe as Urban Fiction with a slick old- school literary voice.
In his youth he read the works of Donald Goins, Iceberg Slim, Richard Wright and the poetic banter of James Baldwin, over and over again, all the while hiding those books from his peers, because reading wasn’t “cool”. He use to hide his books from his mother, reading books beyond his years.
Growing up in New York City’s hardcore Bushwick –Hylan Projects, his writing is not necessarily intended to glamorize the quote-unquote gangsters, or even the street life, but to emphasize the presence of the drama that was in involved and surrounded around it.
Dean Hamid works tirelessly to keep his work as professional , yet gritty, as it can be.
Dean Hamid is currently publishing his new book, “Lost Boy”.
