Rashid Darden is an acclaimed author who chooses to use the fictive word as a vehicle for social change. His influences are wide and varied, from Paul Beatty and Saul Williams to Jackie Collins and Stephen King.
Because of the dearth of such stories in his literary upbringing, his novels will always include characters who are gay or bisexual men of color.
The Life and Death of Savion Cortez is the first volume of poetry from Rashid Darden. The poems are inspired by the character Savion Cortez from the Potomac University Series.
Birth of a Dark Nation, the first installment of the Dark Nation Series, is the story of African vampires brought to America during the transatlantic slave trade, told through the eyes of Justin Kena, an average guy living an average life in modern Washington, DC.
- A standalone e-book for Smith & Jones: Young Americans.
- Perhaps a memoir?
- The continuation of the Dark Nation series.
- A novel set in the same universe as Lazarus, Covenant, and Epiphany.
- Or maybe something else entirely.
