About the Author

My name is Larry W. Keys and I reside in Va. where I've been telling street stories for over 15 years, to help some young adults get a grip on life.

I have over 25 years of recovery from drugs and alcohol. I have also self-published two young adult peer pressure books, (HOODZVILLE) along with one comic book.

Now, I have just released; Hoodzville animated rap movie, along with Hoodzville Pedigree. We utilize our street skills, along with my certificate of addiction treatment counseling.

Also I've done motivational speaking for kids at risk, and continue to do motivational speaking about young adult peer-pressure.

With this under my belt, I bring forth a professional future growth and development awareness. This may help others in their walk through life to help become clean and sober.

(From the Negative to the Positive)

My stories along with my brother Nicholas the Poet artwork and words of wisdom, from street smarts to role model. Together, we present a tool that's geared toward a sense of urgency for our youth to become a role model in their community.

I'm not here to glorify but, only to identify those problems and situations of peer pressure in the hoods.

I know firsthand that; "it's one thing to live it, and, another to survive it." Giving hope to those who go through so much at a young age is not an easy task.

We refuse to sugar coat those situations of peer pressure that scar kids for life. We practice giving back to the community through the knowledge of, "lead by example."

Which is very important in this generation and generations to come. I take the negative in my characters and turn them into positive role models.

In order to catch my reader's attention, I reach out and witness to them. I was given a choice to except it or reject it.

It took all the power within me to make that life changing decision, and we share our imagination of what it takes for some kids of today to press on pass the negative environment.

If it was easy, everyone would be doing it! It's a process and we plant the seed of HOPE.
