Earl Everett Pinney, Jr., born and raised on the island of St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands, relocated to New Jersey at the age of 18 to attend Edison Job Corps. While there, he enrolled at Middlesex County College and ultimately obtained his Associate Degree in Marketing Art and Design. He's now working on obtaining his degree in Criminal Justice through the University of Phoenix. 

Earl had to make some huge adjustments in his life, after he was awarded custody of his son, Donte Whitaker-Pinney. Being a single parent became the biggest challenge of his life. However, he adjusted his life and moved forward. With the grace of God and help from his brother, Greg, everything worked out. In 2009 God blessed Earl with a beautiful wife, Desmin Samuels Pinney, who was born and raised in Jamaica. Donte, Desmin and Earl - moving forward as a family. 

Back in the Virgin Islands while attending Eudora Kean High School Earl  discovered his love of poetry. As he became older, experienced, and the reader of personal growth books, he realized he was seeing the world differently. Before he knew it, he had a pen in his hand writing a story. To be exact, that story became Black 100 Feet, about an inner city youth named "Black" who ran the streets and loved to fight. Black and his crew were well known and feared. He was on a road headed to death but his life changed when . . .
