Curtis Bunn loves God, family, friends, writing, golf, good food and good wine and cooking, in that order. He considers creating stories about love and life, with an authentic insight into the minds of men, as fuel for his existence.
An award-winning sports journalist in Washington, D.C. (his hometown), New York and Atlanta, Curtis made the transition in 2001 to novelist and has been crafting in-depth, humorous, insightful, smart stories that have become favorites of avid readers and book clubs across the country.
From Essence No. 1 bestselling Baggage Check to the most recent The Old Man In The Club (and everything in between), his books resonate with those who enjoy realistic stories that evoke all the emotions and are can’t-put-down works. His next novel, Seize The Day, will be release by Strebor Books/Simon & Schuster in the spring of 2015.
He created the National Book Club Conference in 2003, and it has since evolved into one of the premier annual literary events that support African-American authors and readers (www.nationalbookclubconference.com).
Curtis is a proud member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. and 1983 graduate of Norfolk State University, where he was honored in 2014 with a Distinguished Alumnus Award. For four years he was an adjunct professor and guest lecturer of journalism at Morehouse College. He serves as deputy editor of www.AtlantaBlackStar.com, one of the leading websites that focus on news about African Americans.
When not writing or eating or cooking or sipping wine, you can find Curtis on the golf course, where the battle to lower his handicap continues.
