Book description…

Standing before me was Felix Petijean’, the head of the Louisiana Syndicate. J’nell Montalvo and Major Lampton defend Qujette Barbarette against the charge of murder. In the process, they uncover a murder for hire plot that pits sons against their mother. J’nell again has to deal with the loss of a loved one. She is haunted by the granddaughter of Wilton Benoit, the Texas wildcatter who she brought to his knees in her first major case just months out of law school. She sees all of her children married and giving her grandchildren at a time when she realizes she has come full circle in her life. The biggest challenge is when she is confronted by a dark force who reveals to her that there have been others working behind the scenes to assure many of her legal victories. It is then, that she questions the loyalties of everyone in her life, including her loving parents. After her retirement, J’nell decides to document her life. A decision that will cause an even bigger uproar than when her, and Gavin Davenport, III’s, parents joined the sexual revolution of the 1970’s. J’nell continues to fight for all who cannot fight for themselves. Through it all, J’nell never loses her faith in God and the knowledge, HE has always been the one in control of her life. In her golden years J’nell reflects on her many accomplishments, the people who floated in and out of her life, her losses and gains. At the very end, she realizes she had few regrets in the way she lived her life.

Introducing Roy Albert Andrade, author of Cultivating the DNA of Crime

“Outskirts Press opened the door to the literary world. I just walked through it by opening an account. If, I remember correctly, I entered an email address, and provided a down payment. I was contacted by email, and asked to provide a time, and date I would be available to discuss my manuscript. The telephone conversation lasted nearly 30 minutes, and I learned what to expect before publication. I was exalted, because I knew this was going to be the beginning of a new friendship. I met various people through Outskirts Press in the production phase, and maintained excellent communication with them through email. Outskirts Press helped Cultivating the DNA of Crime come to fruition, and provided all the essential marketing solutions on a single webpage. I’m extremely happy with the outcome, and am currently working with George Pryce, a veteran of public relations. He read Cultivating the DNA of Crime, and was electrified. He was impressed, and commented on the interior design, title, cover art, synopsis, etc. Outskirts Press made this possible, and I am very grateful. The only thing I rue, and I thought about this the other day, is not having an ‘acknowledgment’ page. Where I can thank Outskirt Press, and provide the names of the individuals that participated in the production of Cultivating the DNA of Crime. The next manuscript we publish will have one.”

Roy Albert Andrade was born in Pacoima, California. He graduated with an Associates of Arts degree with concentrations in business from the University of Phoenix in 2011. Cultivating the DNA of Crime is his first novel.
