Question: Any future writing projects in the works? If so, tell us about it, and any pertinent dates to go with it.
I have a new project called "Tales Of A Mafia Dentist", it's about a World Renowned Dentist who loves a double life, Dentist and husband, dad by day, but heads The Most Dangerous Mobb Family in the World From America to Sicily, gets caught and tells the World his story with a twisted ending.

Question: What is the title of your current book, and tell us a little about it.
"A New Bishop", is about a young man who is bred to become The Bishop of his childhood Church, and maybe the Presiding Bishop of the Pentacostal Churches of America, but tragedy hits home, and he forgets about God and lives the life of a gangsta. Will redemption be for him or will the streets overtake him, from the women, money, and power.
Last question, if someone comes across this article and reads it, what would you like to tell them about why you think they should try reading your book or books?
I can say I'm Derrick. I'm honest and direct and I cover every genre. Hollywood has destroyed the art of writing, try a book and let's become acquainted, you've never read a book like mine, I can promise you that. Once you open it you'll be on a ride you'll never want to get off, I can promise you that there's no other writing quite like mine. I take writing and the imagination to another level. There's no other writer that can thrill and connect with the reader like me.
Anything else you'd like to add that I didn't ask you, but you would like to share with our readers?
