While Felicia Pearson is a brilliant actor in a truly chilling role, what's most remarkable about 'Snoop' is what she has overcome in real life. Born a three-pound, cross-eyed crack baby in East Baltimore and raised in a foster home, Snoop proved she was as tough as the streets. Showing an early aptitude for drug slinging and violence, she thrived as a baby gangsta until she landed in Jessup State Penitentiary after killing a woman in self-defence. There she rebelled violently against the system and it would take the news of the murder of her childhood mentor, a local drug-dealer called Uncle Loney, for her to decide to turn her life around. Then, after being discovered in a nightclub by one of The Wire's cast members and recruited to the show, fiction began to mirror life as 'snoop', drawing on the tribulations of her past, created one of television's most frightening and intriguing villains

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Felicia's story is a reminder to me that through the depths of the worst unforeseen circumstances, that life can sometimes bring, the 2 things that we must never lose sight of, GOD's Grace, and Hope. Felicia is a perfect example of one who learned this the hard way and will now, never lose her way again."--Jamie Hector, NBC's Heroes
"Pearson's memoir is even more horrifying than the cold-blooded killer she portrays on The Wire."--Kirkus Reviews

"Read her intriguing life story...it's a short, punchy ride of a book."--Giant
