    This is the Readers Lounge where we'll be talking to Jeanette Mcmillan James creator of Readers R Us. An pro-active popular Facebook group with readers from all over...I have had a passion for reading ever since I can remember. I collected the “TheBerenstain Bears” books in 1st grade. As I got older I fell in love with “The baby sitters club” and “Sweet valley high” books. When I was in high school a family member introduced me Terry McMillan and she made me fall in love with reading all over again. My Aunt would have to come and check on me to see if I was still alive because I’d spend the whole day in my room reading. From Terry I moved onto Eric Jerome Dickey. His books were just a little slow to start but I did enjoy his work. I hear a lot of people say that “The Coldest Winter Ever” was the book that got them hooked on Urban Lit. I liked the book but it was not what did it for me. An ex con friend of mine told me I should read Donald Goines' books so I picked up “Dopefiend” and I’ve been addicted since.
    & we'll be interviewing BDI/BAD girl Kelly Wiley aka Brooke Lynn as she tells listeners about her book titled "Candy Girl" Kelly Wiley, also writing as Brooke Lynn has been addicted to words for as long as she can remember. Being born and raised in the San Francisco , Bay Area, Kelly’s flare for descriptive writing will take you right into the land of hyphy, where pimpen aint easy, and hustlen is a way of life.  As the first author stepping to the stage on the Black Dawn after Dark’s side,

    Tajana Sutton The very first novel Tajana read was Addicted by Zane. From that point on she was hooked to urban novels. After reading all of Zane's books, she moved on to Eric Jerome Dickey, then Nikki Turner. In 2007, she joined black expressions bookclub.  Tajana had read Nikki Turner books, but there was a slight difference in Wahida Clark books. Tajana began reading Thug Matimony. She was hooked from the very first page!  After reading those books, she felt as if she knew one of the characters far to well. Tasha's relationship was very similiar to hers with one missing link, babymama drama.One night in 2009, she went to sleep upset about some drama that had occured that particular day. When she woke up the following morning, she said "This shit is enough to make a book". Two weeks later, she completed her very first book entitled, Deja. She wrote an entire book in two weeks. She searched around for a publishing house for weeks. In November of 2009, she signed with Enaz Publications. Deja was released in June of 2010
