Black Fairy Tales is a collection of poems and poetic stories that tell the story of growing up Black in America. They read like fast paced mini-movies starring the characters, plot and scenes of too many Black lives. Its vivid imagery, high-definition graphic details, strong storytelling skills and impressive use of poetic devices leave readers, young and old, impacted with stories and writing they they will never forget.

-----BACK COVER -----
"This author is the most talented poet that I have taught in all of my 14 years teaching creative writing at Morgan State University"
-Clay Goss, Playwright
"All these Bit%$es are fire!!! This book loaded with strong wordplay and strong metaphors. The similes are amazing! This book captures your attention from the very first stanza. Black Fairy Tales covers hard to talk about topics such as murder, rape, incest, drug dealing, black on black crime, police brutality and much more that goes on in somebody's average everyday life in a low income American city. I STRONGLY recommend this book to anyone who has struggled.
-Bobby Evans AKA Lor BNO Lor Bobby, Baltimore Highschool Student & Do the WRITE thing Poetry Competition Champion.
"Black Fairy Tales is organized in such a way that each line becomes an event on the page. The poetry is pure and potent with breathtaking lines all throughout."

"Chin-yer's delicately and thoughtfully crafted poems reimagine the content and context of classic fairy tales. We recognize them still, but not these stories wear a different skin, beautiful and terrible all at once. Masterful work!"
-Gayle Danley, International Poetry Slam Champion
"Books like Black Fairytales make me proud to be a writer and I'm glad that the world will be inspired by it as well."
-D Watkins, Bestselling author of The Cook Up and The Beast Side
