Rahiem Jerome Brooks is the breakout novelist with an overwhelming reservoir of criminal tales that motivate American denizen to be overprotective with their personal data, i.e. social security number, pin number, and account number. His debut street thriller, LAUGH NOW won 2010 African-Americans on the Move Book Club's Book of the Year.
Since 1995, Rahiem Brooks has done hundreds of interviews with con men and swindlers in county, state and federal prisons; after all, he was locked down in them, too. He spawned tougher white collar crimes law and the Truncated Act. Hollywood blockbusters like Oceans Eleven and Italian Job that do not affect ordinary citizens are nothing more than entertainment. Through fictional accounts of his former crimes, Rahiem conveys the types of white-collar crimes that obstruct the livelihood of identity theft victims, by chronicling how con men acquire someones identity profile from an avaricious car salesman or medical records specialist for a small fee, and commences to rob the national economy to the tune of 14-billion dollars a year. Rahiems novels prompt retailers to thoroughly scrutinize every transaction, and not to allow a teenager to use the credit card in the name, Dr. John Warwick. Sounds absurd, and it is; however, successful swindlers like Rahiem has used credit cards with the last name Romanovski, Wu, and Philippidis. A glimpse at Rahiems press photo evidence, he is not a Wu.
Some of Rahiem's other soon-to-be published books include: CON TEST (Prodigy Publishing Group) set to release 4-11-11, MR. 357 (Prodigy Publishing Group), and DIE LATER (Prodigy Publishing Group) set to release 9-10-11, the highly anticipated sequel to the published novel, LAUGH NOW (Prodigy Publishing Group), available at amazon.com.
Rahiem Brooks plans to continue his Film/TV certificate program at University of California, Los Angeles, and currently lives in Philadelphia building his Prodigy Publishing Group brand.
