It’s our responsibly to live a life of kindness and compassion. No one can make all of the right choices, but we have a responsibility to society and to God to attempt to do so.

The plights of inner city youth often go undocumented. In his book, Tell No Secrets, Speak No Lies, Derrick Thomas shares three intense and heartbreaking tales that serve as a warning to urban youth everywhere.

Tell No Secrets, Speak No Lies, a fictional narrative, tells of the everyday hardships in an urban community. Addressing issues that often go unspoken, the book sheds light on a part of society that is too frequently forgotten.

Weaving spiritual lessons throughout the narrative, the book provides a poignant social commentary about the ramifications of our decisions, our roles in society and our responsibilities to one another. Thomas believes that choices help to define character and dictate one's place in society. He explains that God has a plan for everyone, but that many deviate from God’s plan with every negative decision they make.

“It’s our responsibly to live a life of kindness and compassion,” says Thomas. “No one can make all of the right choices, but we have a responsibility to society and to God to attempt to do so.”

Thomas tackles mature issues such as gun violence, drug use and infidelity in hopes that he will be able to reach readers who have encountered such hardships. He seeks to be an inspirational voice for the young urban male.

“The book is based loosely on people that I have encountered while growing up in Birmingham. I’m sharing these stories in hopes that my readers will avoid the downfalls of the characters in the novel.”
