In 2015, following his high school graduation, Demetrius Jefferson decided to pursue his love affair with writing instead of going directly to university. The seven years that followed have been a whirlwind. Though he still hears the beckoning call of a Law and Politics program, finding success as a writer is his foremost desire. In 2017, Dreams was his debut work. Shades of Blue, his sophomore novel, was such a passion project because he found the ability to intertwine his love of storytelling with his adoration of public policy. This book manages to be relevant for today yet ahead of its time. It reaffirms what we all know so well that love, politics and society at large is merely an inheritance from generation to generation, with the younger having to decide which things to keep, maintain, transform or totally do away with.
