Reviewing A King’s Genetic Memory with Author Craig Pickney

 

As a writer I’ve always had respect for fellow authors. The creative process is tedious and sometime unruly, but the finished product is well worth the sacrifice. I’ve known Craig since school days but I grew to respect him as a man while reading his works. His words are well thought out with much meaning. He is valor with much insight to give. His ability to make it out of Daytona Beach, Fl. with his mind in tact and ambition in full force is what I most admire. Once I read his literature we connected on a conscious level, here is some insight on the man behind the intellect.

For as long as I can recall I’ve had a love poetry, song writing and music production. As a young boy I would study the Webster’s dictionary to enhance my vocabulary. This was when I started freestyling full verses, which lead to rap songs and small poems. Throughout my childhood I never stopped writing, however it wasn’t until a deployment to Iraq in 2003 that I would start to put material together for publishing. Unfortunately writer’s block would take its course until 2009 while deployed to Afghanistan, I wrote and wrote feeling good as the inspirational poetry began to rush in. By 2011 it was time for me to reconsider my future , did I want to remain in the Army or pursue writing full time? I decided to go for it, I left the military and in this time all I did was attend college and write. I chose to further my education, gaining my Associates in Business Management and Internet Marketing so that it would better facilitate my publishing goals.

I believe that in one lifetime you can be what and who you want to be if you’re wiling to put the work in. I have a following on Facebook which I give a combination of inspiration and real life logic, I try to interact with my readers as much as possible. I’m very open minded and can relate to most personalities, I usually can get people to look at things at an angle never before seen.  The future of my brand (AKGM) or (A King’s Genetic Memory) is focused on the future and open to where that future may lead. I currently have two published bodies of work and I have material composed for my next 3 projects as well. Click the links below to check my manuscripts out.

Off-Duty Okla. cop kills prison escapee during robbery attempt

OKLAHOMA CITY — A man killed by an off-duty Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper Friday in Oklahoma City was a state Corrections Department escapee, authorities said.

 

Darnell King, 22, was shot when he attempted to rob off-duty trooper John Marion in the 200 block of NE 2. King later died at a hospital during emergency surgery.

 

King had been serving a three-year sentence at the Oklahoma City Community Correction Center for assault with a dangerous weapon and possession of a stolen vehicle out of Tulsa County.

 

King was moved recently to the low-security Carver Transitional Center in south Oklahoma City, but went missing from the halfway house Friday, corrections officials said.

 

Police said the trooper was in his garage with the garage door open when King pointed a gun at him and demanded his belongings.

 

The trooper led the man to the home’s second floor, where the trooper used his gun to shoot the man, police said.

 

Police have linked King to an attempted kidnapping and robbery occurring the same day he was shot. That incident involved a woman and her child who were assaulted in the 400 block of N Central as they were entering their vehicle. The two locations are within a few blocks of each other.
