About the Author
Ceasar Mason is a first generation Trinidadian- American. He was born in Brooklyn, New York, to parents that migrated to the United States in the late sixties. His formidable years were spent on the southern Caribbean island of Trinidad. Between the ages of four and ten, he was immersed in the culture and rich heritage that Trinidad had to offer. It was during this period that he developed a strong discipline and work ethic, to which he credits his Aunt Monica (God bless her soul) who raised him during this time. He returned to Crown Heights, Brooklyn in the early eighties as the crack epidemic began. Ceasar attended P.S. 221 and Mahalia Jackson I.S. 391, later graduating from George Westinghouse High School in downtown Brooklyn. Like many young men of his day, the allure of the streets was more fascinating than higher learning. After an arrest that landed him in Baltimore, Maryland's Herman L. Toulson boot camp, he realized that he had a talent to write. Writing letters to the courts on behalf of other inmates became the norm as well as writing personal letters to smooth over girlfriends on the outside. Upon graduation from boot camp, Ceasar remained in Baltimore where he enrolled at Morgan State University's business management program. He would never return to the streets. In 1997 he moved to Atlanta, Georgia where he currently strives as an entrepreneur. He visits his native New York often but certainly prefers the winters of the South.
