Work of Fiction by Darrell King mentions Daufuskie Island

Darrell King if D.C is a fiction writer who uses the names of real places to create a work of soap opera style "Ghetto" fiction. He as a writer is the equivalent of Tupac Shakur as a rapper. I am rather iritated that Darrell writes about Fripp Island being Georgia (we all know that's not true) and Daufuskie Island being the hide out for druglords and seedy types.
