A resident of Chicago, IL Author & Publisher Eddie S. Pierce Jr.received his Master's of Fine Arts in Creative Writing from Chicago State University. He is the founder of Rainbow Room Publishing, LLC., When he learned he was HIV positive, Pierce was also diagnosed with clinical depression. It was through this time of despair that he found a safe-haven through his writing. Pierce says he went from exhaustion, anger, and depression to what he often describes as “pure black boy joy.” Writing allowed Pierce to explore his emotions, reflect on the past, and look to the future. This sense of serenity and safety lit a fire inside him to further his education and continue to “add to the voices of those living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. He was inspired to start Rainbow Room Publishing Company out of pure necessity. His Love series now includes LOVE: Changes 1.0, LOVE: From Behind, and LOVE: Changes 2.0 and 3.0. He is currently drafting and promoting works which discuss the events surrounding our flawed criminal justice system, Marriage Equality, and sexism in Corporate America. Wearing both hats, author and publisher is admittedly no small feat. As a public speaker, he speaks of the challenges he faces as a Christian HIV positive SGL (same gender loving) writer and publisher. What keeps him going/ Pierce says “I keep pushing because someone needs to see me succeed. To make something intangible, tangible is worth it all.”
