"If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together."

- an African proverb

Jamaal Fridge

Author

Jamaal W.M. Fridge is an evangelist, licensed to minister in a nondenominational church in Chicago, where he was born and raised. After graduating from Calvin University with a degree in Business, he went to China for six years to teach English, working with both children and adults.

He has a passion for Christian Education and Biblical Literacy, and wants to use his knowledge of God to further the wellbeing of the oppressed. In his spare time, he loves to write books, ride bikes, watch Avatar: The Last Airbender, and play video games. While he can be quiet, his mind races with ideas to reach new people, and to bring the wisdom of God into each setting.

He looks forward to developing the stories of Theodore Addison and his friends, but most hopes to impact the development of your life story through these books. Jamaal can be reached on Facebook @AddisonBooks if you want more information about upcoming stories, like My New Home, Operation Mapleview, The Average Genius, and others.
