Brief Bio:

1. You seem to be a Jack of off media trades, How did you get started in the business?

At age 14, I began my journey into the music industry as a local DJ spinning at high school parties throughout Baltimore city and county. I ventured in to music production at 17, creating music for likeminded artists. My love for music grew exponentially as I expanded my knowledge into the business side of the industry and launched my first entertainment company called BlackWax Entertainment.

2. You have a background in radio, what stations were you affiliated and what type shows were you on?

I’ve worked with many local stations such as 92Q, 93.9 WKYS, WPB Radio as wells owning an internet station of my own called X105.1 Radio.

3. What made you branch out on your own and start Redzone Studio?

From the time I began making my own mixtape to promote my music, other artists and DJs became very interested in where my custom materials came from. I then brought supply to the demand and created an avenue where they can boost their image in the local market and I could make money in the process.

I’m So Excited To Post Our First FEATURE Interview with Talented Author, Journalist and Narrator Tia L. Lincoln

Tia Lincoln, An Accomplished Child of Baltimore
Tia Lincoln, An Accomplished Child of Baltimore

My love of reading and writing goes back further than I can remember. There’s nothing I enjoy more than curling up in a corner and getting lost in someone’s story. Now I have the opportunity to actually interview and talk to writers who impress Me and I’m so excited. From city to city, coast to coast I want to shine the spotlight on those who impress me most. I will be bringing you interviews with some of the hottest established and up and coming writer that I run across as I blaze my own path of fame across the net. Let’s get it on!! Time to meet one of the greats………..

I read a book by this talented author, Tia L. Lincoln about a year and a half ago and was so touched by the story I reached out to her to tell her how it had affected me. She actually responded and was so humble and graceful. She told Me however that the story I read, “Junkie: A True Baltimore Story” was her sisters life story and suggested I read ” Child of Baltimore” which represented her life. I did and became even more enraptured with her writing. I then discovered that besides a rough Baltimore upbringing we had another thing in common, a fascination with true crime. I’m so excited to be able to introduce you to or give you a more in depth view of the talented author Tia L. Lincoln.

1. For those who aren’t familiar with you and your work can you tell us a little about yourself?

I am an author/writer who writes and publishes strictly true stories. With my publishing company Real Life Productions, I have 5 books out right now entitled: “Child of Baltimore”, “Junkie-A True
Baltimore Story, “The Lady Who Chained Her Baby To The Bed”, “Maryland’s Most Notorious Murders 1990-2008″, and “Until I Get Caught – The True Story of A Serial Rapist in Baltimore”.

2. You seemed to hit your mark with the true crime niche. What was it that encouraged you to start researching and documenting murders?

I’ve been fascinated by the crime of murder ever since I was a child and I’ve been keeping a mental database on murders for years. Growing up in west Baltimore in the early 80’s, I can remember as a child fantasizing about becoming a homicide detective or even a criminal psychologist. It’s the why aspect of a murder that interests me. What drives a person to kill? When my father was murdered in 1995, the only absolute way I could cope with his brutal murder was to get my thoughts out on paper. Who knew that writing about my life and his murder would turn into a career.

3. I hear You have a Bachelors Degree in Criminal Justice, where do you see yourself career wise in 5 years?

So far I just have an Associates Degree in the Science of Criminal Justice but I’m about 55 credits short of my Bachelors. Career wise in 5 years, I will have obtained my Bachelors, mastered Spanish, released at least 3 more books, released the film version of my 5th book, “Until I Get Caught- The True Story Of A Serial Rapist In Baltimore”, and completed courses in victim assistance training as well as an internship with the Innocence Project in Washington D.C.
