JL Whitehead began writing at the age of twelve while residing in West
Philadelphia. Being brought up in the turbulent gang war era of the
70’s, JL’s mother thought it best to keep him inside for his safety.
It was then that he turned to creative writing as a means of
entertainment and self-expression. Once in high school, he began writing
short stories and sharing them with his classmates. Years later, he
submitted an editorial piece to PGN Incorporated which evolved into a
freelance columnist position. In 1989, he self-published a book of his
own poetry entitled, “Universal Words”, and later that same year, he
became the cover model as well as one of the contributing poets to “A
Warm December” released by Vega Press.
