    Divine Ortiz/ CEO/Author
    Divine Ortiz is originally from The Bronx, NY. He spent most of his life as a member of the Five Percent Nation, and a third of his life in and out of state and federal penitentiaries. It was during his last prison term in a Federal Penitentiary that he decided that it would indeed be his last prison bid, and he picked up a pen. Five and a half years and 15 novels later, Divine emerged from the federal prison system with a story to tell. After a couple of not so great experiences with publishers, Divine has chosen to take control of the direction his books and career would go. He created ZitrO Publications. With dozens of books published, several authors signed to ZitrO, and no end in sight, ZitrO Publications is forging its was into the literary world. Urban Fiction and the literary world has a new face. One that threatens to be around for a long time to come.
