WHO AM I

MILES PRESHA

Considering the fact that I’ve grown up watching everything from Little House on the Prairie to Superfriends to Shaft, therein lies a complicated answer.  My origin stems from a cool melting pot of influences that have contributed to who I am as a writer and the stories I want to tell.   

 

Not your typical cookie cutter writer, my characters and the worlds they live in are born from questions only a guy like me would ponder. Questions like Why don’t rappers smile? Why can’t superheroes be fat?  Where do  all the abandoned street weaves go?  Or the question we all want to know the answer to, “ How come no one turns on the lights in a horror movie? 

 

Conspiracy theories interest me.  Underdogs inspire me.  Introducing  the world to compelling Black characters that evoke curiosity and empathy is what motivates me. I became a writer because I wanted to challenge stereotypes and expose the world to  alternative experiences  that have been seemingly missing from our screens.  Universal stories, universal appeal - with different faces. So if you want a new and unique representation of the Black experience  --- I’m your guy.
