Nigel Wooten grew up in Ft Hood, Texas, as the only son of Allison and Donald Wooten. He attended high school in North Carolina graduating with honors in 2002. A year later Nigel enlisted in the United States Marine Corps Reserve as a Lance Corporal attending Recruit training at Parris Island, South Carolina and later drilling out of Wilmington, North Carolina. In 2004 Nigel married Kristal Sanders, the love on his life, to which he still married with two beautiful children, Kristal and Victory. After two years of service in the Marines Nigel was afforded the opportunity to enlist in the United States Army by way of a conditional release from the Marine Corps.

As an avid reader Nigel s mother, Allison, taught Nigel early on the value of not only of reading but of books and the knowledge they contain. Nigel began writing for assignments in grade school, finding a love and a knack for the creative genres. It was through one of these assignments that Nigel was introduced to poetry. It was here that he began and continued to write about his life and the lives of those around him, writing with and for many of his friends all through his school career under the pen name of Black King . It was during his second tour in Iraq that Nigel discovered a love for performing live. Good friend and founder of the 3rd Eye Alumni “Scott Free” offered Nigel a spot in his Writer’s Block poetry show while in Baghdad Iraq performing for the service members and civilians stationed there. His first book “Life in Literary Terms” is dedicated to all of the men and women of the armed services serving all over the world.
