Writer. Artist. Speaker
Sex, Love, Heartaches & Healing is a series of poems, love letters, random thoughts, short stories, flashbacks, epiphanies & realizations written by Shawn William. The book peels back layers of male masculine energy allowing the reader to view a more vulnerable & human side of a black man dealing with lust, love, breakups, marriage, divorce while reentering the dating scene. The book just like Shawn's live performances will take you on an emotional rollercoaster one minute busting out laughing & the next hot & bothered possibly calling for "Thigh Meat" takeout.
