Atty's Attic

My attic is dusty and has a plethora of junk in it. I must say it's a fun place to hang out and look at what's rolling around in my head. If you don't mind the dust, I'd love to have you.

Greed, Lust & Vengeance with Donald Reynolds


In my attic today my guest is someone who, if you’re ever in the wrong part of town, you’ll want by your side. He helps his followers with a daily dose of Street Knowledge 101. Please welcome author Donald Reynolds.



Who are you and where did you come from?

My name’s Donald Reynolds, the Shakespeare of urban fiction. Born and raised in Chicago, Illinois.

Obviously you’re a writer, what is the name of your book and the general plot?

Greed, Lust & Vengeance is the title of my urban series. It’s a sinful tale the begins with two rival  drug-    dealers entangled in a pregnant stripper’s web of lies, deception and betrayal. Theses fast-paced books are    riddled with action, drama, suspense, erotica and of course…danger!


Where did you come up with the idea?

I wouldn’t say it started with an idea. It was more like…real-life experiences that haunted me. This plot plays    in my head likes it’s stuck on replay. Like reminiscing, I guess.

Wow! Well they do say write what you know. 

Which of your characters do you like the most and why?

The character I like the most is Irvin Rice, because although he’s a dope fiend, when he’s sober, and things get crucial, he makes certain moral decisions that most tough guys in his shoes would buckle under.

Which one do you hate the most and why?

Raven! The protagonist. He sets off a chain of events so sinister that nothing is ever the same again after that. Real life works that way too.

You’re stranded on an island and you are granted three things;

If I were stranded on an Island, and granted only three things, I’d love to have an i-phone, a pack of ink-pens, and a lifetime subscription from Playboy magazine.

You’re not that lucky, on this island the first thing you’re granted is an IPod with only one song loaded, what is it?

Anthony Hamilton’s: Comin’ from where I’m from.

The second item is a book with the last chapter missing, what is it and who wrote it?

That book would be: Uncle Tom’s Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe…without the last chapter, Tom would be alive!

Good answer!  

And the third thing you’re granted on this island is a lunchbox with a sandwich and a full thermos, yummy, what kind of sandwich and drink would you appreciate? 

Sushi sandwich and a Bloody Mary

What is the biggest mistake you have made in your life? Not writing or publishing mistake – any mistake. Even if it happened in 3rd grade, I wanna know about it.

Growing up  as a child, with a solemn right hand over my chest, pledging allegiance to a red, white and blue flag that promised  “…liberty and justice for all.”  I can still picture myself doing that in the 4th grade before I knew America’s scandalous history.

What would you do for a Klondike bar?

A Klondike bar?…wow! For one of those, I’d drink a gallon of Michelle Obama’s bathtub water.


You’re still stranded on that island and two people show up, the character you love the most, and the one you hate the most, and they both know what you said about them. What do you do?

I think me and Irvin would drown Raven, and then feed him to the sharks!

You’re kinda scaring me, you’re a very intimidating fellow ya know.

And last of all, favorite memory-

My favorite memory is from the days of my childhood, fishing and drag racing with my father. May he rest in peace.

Thank you so much for visiting my attic.

Please check out Donald Reynolds books and enjoy a few tidbits of his Street Knowledge 101

Greed, Lust & Vengeance

Street-Knowledge 101
Pistol play, heroin, betrayal, ecstasy, prostitution, fornication, syrup…grime, and crime! The ghetto is dripping wet with temptation and sin. Hot slugs and high heels rain down on every street corner! Temptation and sin…if you’re weak, the only way to resist it is to give in.

Greed, Lust & Vengeance II

Street-Knowledge 101
I love the poor shoeless, nappy-headed children of the ghetto. They sing, jump rope, play stick ball, hop scotch, do back flips on dirty piled-up mattresses. They think not of the past, or of the future…they just smilingly enjoy the present moment’s fun. Something we all should do sometimes.

Street-Knowledge 101
In the hood, juggling eight-to-ten sex-hungry women is a dangerous and stressful task. Yeah…I know all about that. I got ‘a’ scar across my face to prove it. But marriage…it’s beautiful! It allows a man to productively focus his sexual energy on one woman. That way he can concentrate his other energies on business.

Street-Knowledge 101
Poverty of goods is so easily cured; but a poverty-stricken mind is irreparable. Reading is mandatory for any man seeking prosperity, pussy or power.


Street-Knowledge 101
In a sick twisted world of serial-killers, drug-dealers, gangsters, pimps and bank robbers, you can NOT have any fears or girl-like emotional weaknesses. These bloodthirsty predators have a sixth sense for weaklings. And some smiling men have intentions as filthy as swine…prison is the devil’s paradise baby boy. And there is always a hard dick or shank waiting to stab you. Snitches usually get hit with them both! Hustler smarter…and always keep your mouth shut.

Street-Knowledge 101
Those who understand us enslave something deep within us. So leaving the ghetto for the suburbs…for some people, only opens up the doors to scarier perils than staying within in the dark urban jungle. At least there, you know what to expect. Trayvon Martin’s death being the perfect example for this illumination.


Street-Knowledge 101
Miseducation is the root of all the problems that plague the ghetto.
