Shannon Holmes'served a five-year term for a variety of drug convictions. Nevertheless, what remains apparent is that Shannon Holmes was destined for greatness. His first book entitled, B-more Careful, sold more than 500,000 copies.

Shannon Holmes' entrance into the literary world was less than mundane. So much that, he wrote his first book, before he wrote his first book. Born and raised in the Bronx (New York City), Holmes wrote his debut novel and signed his first literary contract from prison.

At the time, he was serving a five-year term for a variety of drug convictions. Nevertheless, what remains apparent is that Shannon Holmes was destined for greatness. His first book entitled, B-more Careful, sold more than 500,000 copies.

The tumultuous success of his first novel cleared the path for a two-book, six-figure deal with the publishing icon, Simon & Schuster.

Holmes went on to write the internationally acclaimed,Bad Girlz which sold more than fifty thousand copies in just seven days. His next novel, Never Go Home Again, is recognized by critics from the industry as his best "pen" to date. As such, Holmes accomplished yet another major with the publication of Never Go Home Again by becoming the first author of the "Street "genre to have their novel printed in hardcover.

Currently with St. Martin's Press, Shannon created and financed his own production company to blaze a trail in the mass-distributed, DVD market . Hard White: The Movie, is slated to be released later this year. Casting begins in February, 2008.

Mr. Holmes books are available through Simon & Schuster, St. Martin's Press, Amazon, Barnes & Noble and major online and traditional bookstores.

For press inquires, interviews, and photo exhibits, please contact Mr. Holmes' publicist:
