Sophisticated Souls of Learning Book Club interviews Mr. D. Le'one, author of The Diary of a Black Man.

1.What is your name and where are you from?
D. Le'one and I am living in Memphis.

2. Tell us a little about yourself.
I was born and raised in Chattanooga, graduate from Howard High School in 1984.  I was in the Navy for five years and attended Southern Illinois University for two years.  I am living Memphis with my family.

3. What inspired you to pen your first novel?
I have always loved to write especially poems, but I decided about a year ago to write a novel.  It took about one year but it was worth the time.  I wrote over 1500 pages and narrowed it down to about 200. 

4. How did you come up with the title of your book?
The book's first title was Soul-Mate and it was written in the style of a diary so I decided to change the name.  The book is all about what a young man goes through when searching for a soul mate.

5. How much of your book is realistic?
The book is about 60% realistic and the erotic parts are true.

6. Are you working on any other projects?
Yes, I am working on two more books.  The Diary of a Black Man 2- The Battle for my Soul, and Erotic Christian.
