Chicago native, Caryn Lee, was born to write thrilling novels. Growing up in a home surrounded by books of diverse subjects, it was easy to develop a love of reading. Her affinity for reading grew into a literacy collection at warp speed that even surprised her. She decided to try her hand at penning her own novel, thus, her hit series, "Blackbone", was created. Caryn has since added children's books to her repertoire writing her first children's book (soon to be released), “An Adventure in Magical Unicorn Land". Caryn has been rewarded for her writing, being honored as one of UBAWA's (Urban Books, Authors & Writers of America) Top 100 authors in 2017, 2018, and 2020. Presently, Caryn has several successful novels and does not plan on giving up her love or pen of writing anytime soon.
About her book: Never Trust A Big Butt & A Smile-
Mo’ money, mo’ problems – the mantra of the streets. Truer words have never been spoken; just ask Money Mike and Nook, two brothers from Chicago who reign supreme.
Nothing was ever handed to the two brothers; from a young age they were under the tutelage of Uncle Bleu who made sure they both knew how to get it out the mud and make sure their names rang bells. Making sure that their reign was respected and not solely based on fear, they enlisted the help of their boys Terrell and Tim and together, the four cause a shakeup on the Westside of Chicago like never before.
Trouble arises in gangsta paradise when an unforeseen illness threatens to take Bleu’s life. But in the wake of bad news, a successor is chosen amongst the four but not all parties are happy and ready for the new King to be throned. What happens when jealously lurks in the shadows and a vixen is sent to the concrete jungle to snatch the crown and take it back to her man?
BBD said it best, “Never trust a Big Butt and a Smile” author Caryn Lee weaves the tale to make you see why not every smile is to be trusted.
