Angel Huertas lived it. When others were watching Al Pacino playing the part of Scarface on the silver screen, Angel lived the life. When others were just talking the talk he was walking the walk. He was Playboy Angel. He and his crew owned The Southside of Brooklyn. They ran the drugs. They ran the streets. Almost everyone from those streets are either dead or in jail. Angel tells of his story of what it was like to start with nothing and to build a drug empire only to see it crumble. He lived it. He saw it. He tells it. From the rise and fall to the grace of finding a better way.
About my latest book, Rise To Grace: A Genuine Street Story
As a young boy, Angel Huertas witnessed an intruder come in through the window and attack his sister and torment his mother and grandmother. He grew up poor and was often bullied in his neighborhood, but there was something about him... something everyone recognized... something that made him special.
He quickly learned how to take charge on the streets of Brooklyn. He learned what power was and how to wield it. He was a well respected man on those streets. He was feared. He was known. He was "Playboy Angel"! He arose from the streets of "The Southside" to rule over an empire... until he was betrayed and shot. Twice, he died. Twice, he was returned to life. This is the story of a young boy who became a man. A man who conquered street power, then lost it all. But through the "Grace of God", Playboy Angel discovered and learned the true meaning of "Power"!
