Before Anthony Ellis discovered his niche for writing, he was a street hustler, a veteran drug addict, and a career criminal. Ellis was raised by a devoted mother in Jackson, Mississippi. His search for self began when he was a boy. During his early life, he felt empty, because his father was absent, plus, he was severely disciplined and humiliated often.

After high school, he seemed to stare success squarely in the face when he enrolled in Jackson State University and joined The Sonic Boom. However, misfortune fell on him when he was introduced to crack cocaine; afterward, his life went down quick. He dropped out of college, moved to Memphis, Tennessee, became homeless, and a petty thief.

His soul was lost for over four decades. He discovered he had the package, but a prison counselor helped Ellis break out of his mental prison. Then, miraculously, he had a spiritual reckoning, and he became free.
