    Author Peter Mack

    in Books

    Writing under the pen name of Peter Mack, literary genius,
    Isiko Cooks celebrates women and their desire, motivation
    and dedication in the pursuit for peace, power and position
    in life and love. Isiko Cooks encourages the discovery of a
    woman's self worth through his writing. The sex, violence,
    money and murder detailed in his novels merely serve as a
    hook for a larger conversation about life and its reward in
    the struggle. Coining the hash tag #LiveRichDieReady, he’s
    become a master of the urban narrative.
    After being arrested for drug trafficking and distribution in
    2005, Peter Mack penned his first novel, HoodSweet
    (Seaburn Publishing Group, 2007) while in solitary
    confinement. He has gone on to author and publish 15
    novels which span popular genres while canvassing the
    tapestry of his upbringing and exploring the dynamics of the
    relationships between men and women. Isiko counts Walter Mosley as one of his early influences for his
    topical narratives and varied styles of writing.
    Mr. Cooks is the 2015 PEN American Center book prize winner for his autobiographical novel, FILTHY.
    Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, Cooks worked as a former 2nd grade teacher and corporate
    professional. He is a father of one which he co-parents with international motivational speaker and author,
    Lisa Nichols. Despite his incarceration, Isiko has maintained a strong and tender bond with his son,
    Jelani, speaking with him weekly.
