Why did author King Khan write his thrilling Addict Files series? “I was inspired by my own experience with drug abuse, and the devastation it caused in my life,” he says. “I decided to use my experience to write about addiction in a graphic fashion to take the glamour out of drug use, for all those who think of it as an acceptable form of recreation.” In his second book, The Lottery Winner, Tyrone Moxley is a sheltered graduate student attending Catholic University. He is serious, honest, and principled, with values instilled in him by a loving and close-knit family. Paul Vincent is the opposite of Tyrone. He is a self-serving, narcissistic drug abuser who uses anyone he comes across to satisfy his own selfish and petty desires. He also just won the lottery. This novel about a sheltered young man who crosses the path of a despicable lottery winner exposes the naïve Tyrone to the dark elements of drugs, sex, and murder. It is also about loss of innocence, but is tempered with the redeeming power of love and forgiveness. Set in Washington, D.C. and Philadelphia, this striking tale also tells the love story of a beautiful young woman looking for her knight in shining armor. Will she find him?
