Top Goon (Book 1)

by A. Paige Turner

Teflon Twin comes from Southeast, Washington, D.C. where his tight-knit family of street hustlers has but one goal in mind: getting to the bread. On the way to that goal Twin is not inviting any drama, but not ducking any either. This instructive work depicts in a â??no-holds-barred’ fashion the many years of his struggle for unconditional loyalty, power, and respect.

In this piercing debut memoir, Twin outlines the levels of becoming a goon. The situations are real and could make you or break you, but like it or not, the message contained within these pages can be applied in real-life situations in â??hoods across America today.

From the pen of A. Paige Turner and the mind of Teflon Twin, who have each been â??50-played’ by snakes, false friends, and the worst betrayers of all: their own flesh and blood, you are invited to journey through the life of a real live goon. This book will fascinate, educate, and inspire any reader to have a vision and follow their goals, keep your mind free, and avoid becoming institutionalized. This true-life account depicts a world most people don’t want to face: the amoral, ruthless, drug-filled, and oftenâ?¦murderous world of a goon.



Imperfect Creatures

by Brandon Edward Woodward

The true story which begins with a young boy who is born on the tail end of a troubled teenager’s cross country runaway adventure, and in short order adopted by a compassionate but stern divorcee. After his younger biological sister abruptly appears from nowhere to join his foster life and just as suddenly she’s adopted off to a new family, he grows increasingly paranoid that soon he will be the next to go. And sure enough, as time progresses and his fear grows, a mysterious woman enters his life looking to make him her own child. She dangles before him the tantalizing offer of a place where he belongs, but the situation might not be exactly as it seems.

Because he grew up in a world not knowing his often mentioned birth-mother, his longing to meet that mysterious woman is both intense and daunting. When the chance finally presents itself, he struggles with the ensuing jealousy of her acceptance and the progressively caustic nature of her apparent bi-polar disorder. He is at first able to gloss over her glaring faults and manic incidents, but it isn’t long before the troubles begin to mount. As his teenage years progress his strange father and inescapable sexual confusions are mixed into day to day life. Before anyone knows it, he finds himself caught in a degrading situation well beyond his years, and none of his choices come easy. Should he attempt to form the family bond that he’s always dreamed of by accepting the serious pollution caused by his mother’s blundering transgressions, or should he abandon that dearly held dream for the sake of his increasingly imperiled wellbeing? Are the choices even his to make?
