About the Author
I would like to introduce myself. my name is Melliono. I was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY until the age of 14 by my single mother, who decided the streets of New York were getting to rough and moved us to Atlanta GA, where she believed we would have a better life. As a child my dream was to become a famous rapper so my mother always encouraged me to write, she would always say the money was in the writing not the Rapping. Writing has always been an outlet for me as a young kid and throughout my adulthood. When I was 25 years old I was incarcerated for defending myself in a fight and I am currently in the process of appealing my case. While I await my fate I have been writing. At first I would write just to keep myself busy so that the negativity that is prison life does not distract me, however now I see that I do have a gift from God a talent to create and bring my imagination to life. I believe in myself and my abilities to create characters and stories that will appeal to the masses of people who enjoy allowing their imaginations to run wild through the pages of a good book. Male prostitute is my very first book and I am proud of it. In my opinion I reached deep down inside of myself as an artist and created Rico who is a combination of a group of men I knew growing up in Brooklyn NY, as well as some men I have run into over the years in Atlanta, GA. This book is raw and gritty, it is a great depiction of the language of the streets of Atlanta GA. Rico was someone I thought I would like to be but never had the heart so I decided to bring him to life on paper. His character is bold and very innovative for a young black male living in Atlanta GA, because he did things some young black men would dream of doing but would never be bold enough to actually do it. This book is also a depiction of how I saw life growing up and running the streets of Atlanta GA. Autobiography of a male prostitute is defiantly a page turner and will keep the reader guessing what Rico will do next, with twist and surprises the whole way.
