Nothing in the background of Colin Taylor, a serious young black singer studying for a career in opera, could have prepared him for meeting and falling in love with Avé Blue, a street-smart single mother whose personal agenda includes revenge upon two notorious police detectives, tried-but exonerated-in the shooting death of Avé's older brother, Tamar, a suspected criminal. In Stephen Burrell's noir novel of inner-city Boston in 1971, incendiary relationships propel the action, and as the settings shift from bedroom to family room to courtroom, the denouement erupts in a cause célèbre that shakes presumptions of guilt and innocence. A story of obsession, self-sacrifice, and ultimate redemption, this novel can speak to any reader imparting something significant and valuable.

Reviews of Avé Blue :
"Great book to own and read. Excellent mystery with good story base. Great for Boston lovers. Mr. Burrell is a great writer. He has a great flair for writing a good mystery. He describes the characters in the book very vividly. Recommended!"
"This book is a masterfully written tragic love story. It is sure to entice readers from start to finish! Colin and Avé weave a love story that most women would only dream about. I could only hope to find a man that would love me to the depths of a Colin. So to all readers male and female, even though this is a tragic love story the Alfred Hitchcock ending is sure to bring more JOY than Pain. I encourage you to read Mr. Burrell's Avé Blue you will become a FAN."
"This novel is an excellent portrayal of life in Boston's black neighborhood in the 70's and the dramatic interaction between a young black couple, two corrupt policemen, and the jaundiced Criminal Justice System. Once you start reading, you will find it difficult to put the book down. Passion, crime, drugs, murder, all are interwoven in the story.
"Innocently enough, it all starts with a young black man set on a promising career in the opera, and in love with a beautiful black woman. We have two murders in the book: a young man and a corrupt policeman - both black! The reader finds himself / herself thrown into the deep end of the underworld of Boston's ghettoes, the docks, the jails, the courtrooms, the prisons...
What follows then, is an extended dialogue. Through the eyes of the hero, the author delves deep to examine a wide area of subjects in the Black American struggle experience towards liberation from slavery days to the present and searches to find a way of real freedom for black people. Pan Africanism, heavily investing in Africa, creating some form of Black International Brotherhood is all examined.
"Ultimately, however, the hero finds he is unable to escape the prison walls of a narrow cell, and must await his sad fate - the fate of many black American young men born in the ghettoes, and condemned to waste away in prisons, and even end up in the electric chair. This is a riveting book, and I highly recommend it to all readers ."
Born in 1957 and raised in Roxbury, Massachusetts, I studied acting at the National Center for Afro-American Artists/Elma Lewis School. I also modeled for Maggie, Inc. out of Boston for many years before moving to Los Angeles in 1990.
In L.A., I was seen right away on TV shows such as: Parker Lewis Can’t Lose, W.I.O.U., and They Came from Outer Space. I returned to school in 1995, where I earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Telecommunications Technology in 1998.
In the early 2000s I started an audio/video company, even keel productions. Returning to the creative passions in life I began shooting video for local organizations and taking photographs to sell at local Farmer’s Markets and Art Shows. I have authored three novels, Avé Blue, The One Millionth Man and The Ire of Ezra Bishop.
In August of 2011 I moved back east to Springfield, Massachusetts. Having been in the area for just over three years I re-joined Maggie, Inc. and joined Ken Park Talent Management in New York. I have worked on dozens of projects since returning to the east coast from print ads for Merck Pharmaceutical to television commercials for MediaComm Cable Network and television shows on the Nickelodeon Network. My photography has been on exhibit in Springfield, Amherst, Cambridge, Boston and Holyoke, Massachusetts.
I have produced countless videos for clients and recorded and engineered my own audiobook, The Ire of Ezra Bishop, available directly through me.
