Hello everyone, welcome to a few words about myself. My name is Derrick Anthony Marrow. Though if you know me personally, you just call me D. Or if you’re below a certain age, you probably call me Coach D. I coach football, basketball, and baseball.
Now to the reason you have clicked on my bio: Why do I write? I write to feel the words from my over-hyper mind. It helps me to get my thoughts out there. Like all writers, I write to share my thoughts with my audience. To people that think the same and to those that think contrary to me. I am not afraid of another’s perspective. I love to have a great conversation. What you will read from me will vary but it all will come from the lens of who I am. I am not and cannot be someone else. Now who am I? I happen to be a father, a coach, a dreamer, a writer, and at my core, a kid born and raised in Philly.
I don’t have a particular writing style nor do I like to pigeonhole my writing or topics. I just write. Novels, poetry, short stories, blogs, even music lyrics. I have an eclectic music taste (I’ll give you a hint: I listen to anything with good lyrics). As diverse as my birth city is, as my experiences are, that’s the way I see myself; as a true author and renaissance man. That diversity, those diverse topics, is what I’ll share with you. I am afraid of no topic. I am a firm believer of giving you the truth even if you are not prepared or willing to accept it. But most of all, I write and deal and interact with respect.
What led me to where I am now? I really don’t know. I’ve been writing since seventh grade where I started because I was the new kid and bored in class one day. I just never stopped. Where it will lead me? I don’t know. But I hope you come along for the ride.
