Give Them All A’s! is a rare book that uses comedy to relay an upbeat and positive message to teachers around the USA. People may agree or disagree with my technique. Yet, if they work in a school they may say I am on point. Maybe not 100 percent correct, but right on some points. “If I could bat 1000, I wouldn’t be teaching. I’d be playing for the New York Yankees making 50 million a year.” - Frank James IV
From Howe Street to Accra, is about my adventures in Ghana. The book is ideal for people who are interested in visiting Africa. The book details my time as Assistant Director for the feature film, Coming To Africa. The book is a fun read that will take the reader to Accra, Ghana. I bring the reader with me as I face the task of being a first time AD in another country. I also showcase the beauty of both Accra and the people of Ghana.
No Sell Out! I seem to have a thing for titles ending with exclamation points. Is a tale about the ten years a Black man spends in a fugue of alcohol and drugs. The story is one of resilience and self contemplation. No Sell Out! is also my first published work. The books writing style is influenced by the great African American storytellers: Iceberg Slim and Donald Goines. The book takes the reader into the mind of a young man who’s inability to accept responsibility for his actions leads him into a life of crime, poverty and addiction. The tale is gritty and at times harsh, but as they say, “That’s how it happened.”
