Shannon Holmes was born and raised in New York City’s most northern borough; the Bronx. Holmes’ entrance into the literary world was anything but ordinary. Armed only with a G.E.D. and the desire to change his life, Mr. Holmes crafted his first novel and signed his first literary contract from prison, while serving a five year sentence for various drug convictions. This was truly an amazing feat when you consider Mr. Holmes had never even written a short story in his life.....
He first achieved success with his first novel ‘B-more Careful’, which has gone on to sell a half a million copies to date. This may not sound like a lot of to the general public, but in the literary world Mr. Holmes is platinum. By producing such lofty sales numbers, Shannon was able to parlay the success of his first novel into a two book, six figure deal, with publishing giant Simon & Schuster.
Now Mr Holmes has set his sights on the Urban Films genre. Having completed principle photography on his first film Hard White.... Mr. Holmes is gearing up to turn all his novel into Films as well as acquire the movie rights to other prominent authors and turn them into films as well. In the very near future ShannonHolmes Communication Media will be a force to be reckoned with.... Believe that!!
