Tawana Logan, a mother and grandmother currently living in Elmira, New York, where she enjoys songwriting and crocheting clothing, has completed her new book “Can’t Be Trusted and Other Short Stories”: a graphic tale of violence, crime, and justice in a northwestern New York town.

Tawana writes, “Butafli is a majestic Jamaican go-getta who, regardless of parole, uses her body and street knowledge to get whatever she wants. She makes the mistake of recruiting the assistance of her sister Tonka and her cousin Fresh to rob Kilo, not knowing behind every boss is another boss. Take the reckless journey filled with humor, sex, drugs, money, and deception. The saying goes when you want something done, you must do it yourself. Otherwise, you learn that people can’t be trusted.”

Tawana also writes about A Diabetic Cereal Killer, “Joshua is a young man who grew up with juvenile diabetes. Without a dad and with an ungrateful mom, he has to collect cans and work, yet he still cannot make his mom happy. With deep anger and disappointment, Joshua takes out his anger on others in a twisted way to get what he always wanted love and a little sugar satisfaction.” and Crylynn Dunbar, who drives into incoming traffic in a DWI accident that claims the life of a man. Tawana comments, “After a brief encounter with the victim’s family, she learns more about him as well as his homicidal past. The justice system gives her a break, but will the family? She soon learns that, as always, one action has a chain reaction and a consequence.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Tawana Logan’s engrossing book is a no-holds-barred depiction of drug-dealing, prostitution, and large-scale theft in a New York community.
