It feels really good to have been a part of helping Kentrell bring his story to life on paper.
Myers, primarily a music producer and union electrician, says, “I was introduced to Mike by his cousin as a referral to help me finish write a book. But, I never thought it would be like this. I am amazed at how things came together, because I was just focused on trying to tell a good story.”
