Meet the Author


DeWandus Johnson Sr. was born and raised on the West Side of Chicago, in the North Lawndale Community. Involved in the street life at an early age, his first visit to prison was at the formative age of seventeen-years-old. In his adult years, Dewandus decided to leave Chicago. It was time for fresh start and a slower pace, so he relocated to Omaha, Nebraska.

Unable to shake his "get it by any means necessaryā€¯ attitude, he found himself in prison again. While in federal prison, he was introduced to legends of the Chicago lifestyle, and gained knowledge on other ways to live successfully. One particular friendship awakened a new understanding of life for DeWandus, and a new goal was born. His goal is to give unfiltered mental visuals and testimonies about the untold truths of the ghettos of America.

As of today, DeWandus has written several books and has plans of writing more in the future. DeWandus' writing style can be described as live, vivid, and raw. Please enjoy the first novel published under Royal Roar Publishing LLC and keep your eyes open for the next release, " All Cried Out!"
