K'wan needs no introduction. Able to command a room simply by walking in, he is now highly recognizable and well admired. With countless novels penned under his name and other secret pen names, his catalog grows frequently. I was able to have an intimate sit down with one of the most prolific authors in Urban Fiction. Here are his thoughts...

Q: If you could talk to the teenage version of yourself, what would you advise yourself?

 

A: You don't need the approval of others to be great.

 

Q: You recently ended your most popular series, "Animal". How hard was it to put this character to rest?

 

A: Yes and no. Animal has been with me a long time, through 12 novels and roughly thirteen years. I'm notorious for killing off main characters, but he's one that I previously hadn't been able to pull the trigger on. In most of the previous novels he's been featured in, I wrote a death scene but could never use it. That's when I realized that I had become emotionally attached to him.
