Publisher's Summary

Craig Stewart is one of America's most gifted writers. His work debuted on stage in Atlanta with A Day in the Life, wowing sold out audiences and critics alike. Stewart's highly anticipated memoir, Words Never Spoken, was released in 2012. 

Praised as one of Stewart's most revealing and personal works yet, Words Never Spoken details his journey as a songwriter, entrepreneur, and playwright, and his self-discovery as a gay Black man living in Atlanta. Stewart writes candidly about his private conversations with media mogul Tyler Perry, and why Perry dubbed Stewart's work brilliant, but opted not to help him. 

Stewart also pulls us through the rise and fall of his musical relationship with Grammy award-winning recording artist Brandy Norwood. Stewart's story is as clean and crisp as the early works of the late E. Lynn Harris, but destined for a lane of its own because of its nuanced richness. 

Words Never Spoken reads like a diary that was never intended for the eyes of anyone other than its author. Stewart opens up about his struggles with love, friendships, and a two-year bout with depression that led to an Internet sex addiction.

This Story is Amazing!

I love this book. I love the narration, not only because he did a good job, but he is the book. Craig reading his own story made me feel like he was sharing his story with me. His most intimate moments, and courageous interactions, and his smart wiit. A good read, indeed.

The best and relatable book I’ve read so far in my life.

Craig Stewart is an amazing writer and narrator. His story touched me so much and made me realize many things in my own life (as myself being a 22 year old gay black man ) that I need to work on and accept about myself. That life isn’t meant to be perfect but not be afraid to live life (but with sense). Also to stand in your truth and to learn from adversity that comes with it. I’ve never had someone to fully understand and/or look up to in my life when it comes to being a black gay man. I’ll definitely be purchasing and reading the rest his books in the near future. Thanks Mr. Stewart for just being yourself and sharing your story.

I really enjoyed listening to Craig’s story

Craig, you have lived. Kudos to you for not giving up on your dreams, despite many obstacles and setbacks. In addition, I gained a broader perspective into the challenges and internal struggles many LGBTQ may suffer while coming to terms with their sexual orientations; within our judgmental society.
