Local African American entrepreneur’s book ‘Redwood’ released


Waldorf Publishing is thrilled to release the new book “Redwood” by Baltimore African-American entrepreneur, A. Rod Womack. “Redwood” is the true story of The Redwood Grill, an upscale restaurant located in an historic building near Baltimore’s famous Inner Harbor.

The book is a gripping true story of a once successful and popular Baltimore restaurant known for its great cuisine, vivacious musical entertainment, radiant atmosphere and memorable A-List celebrity events. From the beginning, the three young entrepreneurs worked tirelessly to make this restaurant the pinnacle dining experience. The story takes many twists and turns, leading them through a maze of challenges along the way. However, the conflict intensifies when the young men later discover the unthinkable— that all along a serial killer was in their midst.

The journey is riveted with humor, intrigue, mystery, conflict, sex, drama and many takeaways for future entrepreneurs. Just as the dust seemed to settle, the owners were introduced to a charming and charismatic con artist who wanted it all— and attempted to take it all.

Womack is a talented writer whose motivation and passion for storytelling distinguishes him from many of his contemporaries. Redwood is his first book. Womack co-owned his first company at 18-years-old. His entrepreneurial experience spans numerous industries including: restaurants, real estate development, construction, concert promotions and more.

Rod Womack demonstrates his unique storytelling approach in a way that is insightful and vivid. The story is immensely thought provoking and will connect with people from all races, genders and walks of life.
