Marcus A. Brown was born and raised in Chicago Illinois, being the older of two children. Marcus comes from a family that is not only big in number, but as well in love and care. It was in 1st grade when Marcus discovered his true talent and gift, when developing a story in which his teacher didn’t believe came from such a young mind. Since first grade, Marcus has gone on to write many poems, short stories, and novels. Marcus is currently working on new material that’ll shine light on other talents and gifts. Marcus plans on having a story turned into a screen play that’ll enable people to see his characters come to life. Marcus inspiration came from his late grandfather, where he would sit on his grandfather’s lap, and take imaginary trips with the stories his grandfather told. “Inspire Me” is the first of many books that’ll come from both the soul and mind of Marcus A. Brown. With his writing he wishes to… Inspire, Encourage, and give Hope, because where those three words are mixed Love is bound to show.
