About the Author

B.E. Harmon

Eatonville is the first incorporated all-black town in the United States, also is important in African-American history as home of Zora Neale Hurston, the Harlem Renaissance writer known for her novel Their Eyes Were Watching God. And like Zora, B.E. Harmon, was born and raised in that same town that sits in Orange County Florida, six miles North of Orlando to the proud parents of Leonard and Linda Harmon.

Growing up in the housing projects better known as “Chocolate City” B.E. HARMON fell in love with book’s while attending Hunger Ford Elementary School

It would be years later while attending Edgewater High School when he would attempt to write his first novel; after completing his 10 chapter short story he was told that the book wasn’t worth reading so he threw it in the trash, along with any dreams or admiration of writing again. Ten years later, B.E. HARMON tried his hand in the stock market as a Day Trader [trading for six years] along with his childhood friend Daniel Gamble. Being a Day Trader, B.E. HARMON was making enough money to support his wife and two children but for him he felt like something was missing, it was during that chapter of his life he found the urge to give it another try, but this time around he he took it upon himself to learn the proper way of putting a book together.

Just like Zora did, Not wanting to put all his eggs in one basket he knew he still had to provide for his family so he started HARMON MEDIA GROUP LLC as well as WEST BROWN LLC, an ATM MACHINE Company; and after eight months of studying he wrote his first novel “ALL IN” as well as three other books.

Currently B.E. HARMON resides in Leesburg fl, with his childhood sweetheart and wife of nearly twenty years , two sons Abdul and Leonard as well as four grand children and his mother Linda.

In the year of 2024 B.E. HARMON is working on making book writing his full time job as well as trying his hand in stage plays and movie scripts while pushing the envelop with HARMON MEDIA GROUP LLC to bring it all to fruition.
