For the past couple of weeks, I have been reading two books by Earl Sewell. They were called “If I Were Your Boyfriend” and “Lesson Learned”. I would have to say, out of all the books I have read, these two were the most related to a young girl’s life.

Earl Sewell is from Chicago, Illinois. He has written 38 books, and all of them have been published. He studied creative writing at Columbia University. In college, he worked in a local public library, and that’s where he discovered a love for books. Sewell took a break from writing after college because over 20 publishers denied him.

Sewell then lost his passion for writing, but discovered it again soon after his mother’s death. His passion for writing inspires me to get back into writing. I love to write, especially when it comes from my heart.

He has really made an impression on my life. I admire him being a male writer writing about a girl’s perspective of being in your teens in a very rough neighborhood. I will finish his whole series and get back to you. Until then, go read his books– they are amazing!
