A local author wins Best Indie Book Award for his self published book, “Dancing to the Lyrics.”
Ratleff describes it as a coming-of-age novel based mostly about his younger childhood in Baltimore, Maryland.
“The book is about my experience growing up as a Black Gay child in Baltimore during the 1960’s,” he says. “It was a time when those who witnessed the most were never interviewed on the evening news.”
