Shontel Greene releases book Mastermind: Born a Statistic, Determined to Die a Winner 12 Years Later

All smiles for National Author Shontel Greene after book sales hit over 10,000 units the first week of the release of Mastermind. Shontel Greene known as “Baltimore’s Empress” has evolved from a once titled, American Gangster/Drug Dealer, to a renown woman of excellence. Recently featured on the BET series “Trap Queens”, the empress was able to highlight the hardships of her childhood and display for the masses the decision-making that led to her survival. Greene plans to publish her memoir, simply titled Mastermind, later this year. The highly-anticipated read will cover everything from her upbringing with a mother cursed by addiction to coming into the drug game for the sake of survival. The streets by no means were an easy teacher. Shontel faced much hardship and many years in a game where she became subject to robberies, kidnapping, multiple arrests and near death experiences like being shot. It was when Judge Johnson mercifully reduced her 20-year sentence that Greene realized she was headed down the wrong path and committed to change. Unlike many in her situation, Greene has always been a lover of knowledge and maintained her studies. With that mindset, she managed to complete two master’s degrees and a doctorate in nursing, in addition to founding and running several successful businesses. In the midst of grossing millions annually, she discovered her passion and founded Nursez R Us, which has now become one of the largest healthcare employers in Maryland. Greene is now one of America’s most successful businesswomen and shares her wealth of knowledge in her forthcoming book Mastermind, which details her journey. Her goal is to be an inspiration and the light at the end of the tunnel for many who may be where she once was, in the dark. Visit to learn more about Baltimore’s Empress.
