The Jill Scott of Black Authors: Best Selling Author, Ms. Adrienne Thompson

“I don’t tell the race of the characters, I let the reader imagine them”.                         ~Adrienne Thompson        I first met Ms. Thompson at The Turner Book Club Annual Authors Luncheon event, where she was a guest speaker. I made the comparison that Ms. Thompson is the Jill Scott of black authors because of her style. Her style of writing is on a sophisticated, deep emotional, make you think kind of vibe with that Dirty South mix of savageness and intelligence. Most of the settings in her novels are in the Dirty South, from the mean streets of Pine Bluff, Arkansas to Houston, Texas. In the literary world, I think that she is the “Queen of the South”.
