Simone organized her experiences and memories and compiled them into an enthralling story that chronicles her professional career working with some of the biggest names in entertainment history and some of the most notorious as well. From her personal association and work with Motown old school royalty to some of the darkest corners of time on Death Row Records as photographer, manager or developing talent when the old schools went through a changing of the guard.

Simone has seen it all and captured much of it in pictures. Simone Green has written a page-turner that reveals the behind the scenes workings of the entertainment industry and Death Row Records in particular, including the brutal assault she suffered at the hands of Suge Knight and others before leaving.
