Joined 7 years ago from Philadelphia Pa




My name is Omar Lamont Mosley. Growing up I was raised in a single parent home, attended seven schools, moved nine times, and was considered the man of the house for almost as long as I can remember. Needless to say my childhood wasn’t easy but what it did do was install in me the character and the necessary wisdom I needed to become the man who I am today. Looking back at what seems in hindsight as an endless struggle, I realize my ultimate reward is the talent God blessed me with to exaggerate my life experiences in imaginative fiction.

I was twelve years old when I first began to write. The expressive words I drew on paper described both the happiness and sadness that went on in my head. They were stories about my life and the chaos that went on in it. Some were funny, others were dark but no matter what I wrote the end result felt like weights being lifted from my shoulders. At first I thought I was writing for fun but as time went on I realized that releasing my thoughts was like medicine for my mind. Over the years, the more life I experienced, the more elaborate my writing became.

I always shared my stories with close friends and family but it was within only the last ten years that I actually entertained the notion of sharing my thoughts more openly. Since that time, I’ve written and developed concepts for dozens of short stories and novels, and with this one being my first published book I believe that the common saying ‘everything happens for a reason’ is one of the truest phrases ever spoken.

Some of my memories are unforgettable experiences that I’ll cherish forever and others are ones that most people would immediately choose to erase from their pasts. But no matter how bumpy or unfortunate things were; I would never want to forget them for they are the fuel that keeps me going. With that, I present a selection of my short stories that I call Bootlegs and Anecdotes.
