Marques Watson has taken time away from accruing debt and frying his brain in graduate school to rekindle his love of writing. He has written numerous poems, prose, political articles, and short stories. His debut novel, Leave It To The Apes is his introduction into allegory and political story telling. He has lived in a warzone and paradise. The warzone being 1990s South Central Los Angeles where he saw what community division and overzealous police could cause. He then attended UCLA and the Monterey Institute of International Studies, two schools located in affluent areas where the aforementioned division and policing are simply television series plots. His experiences and observations have combined to form his worldview: a cautionary view of both the people and the government.
