Black Paris Profiles™: Jake Lamar

I have had the pleasure of interviewing writer Jake Lamar on more than one occasion, including an exchange that led to a feature article on in 2004, shortly after the publication of his fourth novel, Rendezvous Eighteenth. A lot has happened since then, so I contacted Jake for an update. Read on to find out what twists and turns his career has taken in the last seven years.

Jake Lamar is a novelist and a journalist. On the journalist side, he contributes to the The Root, “the leading online source of news and commentary from an African-American perspective.” At the time of this writing, his latest article for the publication addressed the domestic terrorist attack in Norway. On the novelist side, he is working on a book that is a big departure from his “normal” genre – he says that “it’s not a thriller, it’s not set in Paris, and it does not deal with racial questions.”
