My name is Mike Haynes-Pitts and I am the author of the Afrofuturistic cyberpunk LGBTQ+ book trilogy, The Surge Series.The trilogy follows a variety of Black LGBTQ Femmes on various journeys in Africa.I have enjoyed creating the characters that I want to see in the media. When I’m not writing or editing, I host Black LGBTQ+ events, produce videos, chat on my BrainyBlerd podcast, workout, play video games and travel.
