About the Author:
Therone Shellman’s mission is to write entertaining and insightful books for parents, singles, and young adults. Becoming an author has been a dream of his since childhood. Therone’s story is inspirational and motivational. He spent time in and out of jail during his late teens through early twenties. During his incarceration, Therone started writing about his life experiences. In 1989 he submitted his work to several major publishers but was ultimately turned down. His writing style was too gritty and raw for most major publishers at that time. Now, at 33, Therone plans to bring a whole new brand of hustle to the literary game, vowing to become the P Diddy/ Jay-Z of the written word.
“I’m a play by the rules to get in. And then make up new ones as I go along. One day there will not be a reader between the age group of 18-35 that will not know who I am.” Therone is often asked what compels him to write. His answer “I am the gatekeeper between fiction and reality” – These words are reflected in his writing. Goals: To one day be considered one of the greatest writers and visionaries. Build “Third Eye Publishing Inc” into a full service publishing company. Write screenplays, and manage a team of screenplay writers. Most of all become a big influence in the markets of literature and visual arts. And last but not least contribute my views and arts for the advancement of society as a whole.
Message: Through my eyes and stories I plan to tell the human experience. Not just to place blame or fault. But also to educate and provide solutions by causing you to think in ways that you may of never had before. Writing is my freedom. Someone once told me “What good is it to have all this knowledge if you are not giving it to those who need it the most”.
Best Book: The Mis-Education of the Negro, by Carter G. Woodson
Best Novelist: Walter Mosley
Hobbies: Writing, reading, debating and building with like minds, exercising.
Therone resides in Ronkonkoma, New York. He is a bachelor, seeking to accomplish some long wished goals before settling down with the right woman.
