Cedric Mixon, born in St. Louis, MO now residing in Philadelphia, PA founded Kobalt Books Entertainment in 2003, as an outlet for inspirational stories. Mixon is the executive producer of two feature films, one short film and a web series. He brokered the national distribution deal for all of Kobalt Books’ titles which extends from United States, Canada, United Kingdom, India and Europe. Cedric Mixon is responsible for devising and implementing a phenomenal grassroots marketing plan for “The Hoodlum Preacher”, which produced nearly twenty million impressions, with a budget of less than ten thousand dollars. This heightened awareness caught the attention of Hollywood’s Moving Pictures Media Group, who are currently developing the book into a film.

Cedric Mixon is the Writer, Director and Executive Producer of the short film "Serafina Slow Burn" (Philadelphia Independent Film Festival) and "Under the Cherry Tree" (Urban Suburban Film Festival), which is a feature film and web series. "Under the Cherry Tree" was released January 2013 to Walmarts, Redbox and Blockbuster nationwide.

Mixon has produced and directed several music and promotional videos. He is the author of "Under the Cherry Tree", "Lost Letters", "Boldly Walking Naked", and "Soul Mates". Poetry from "Lost Letters" has been featured in Essence Magazine. Mixon published an anthology book of poetry called, "The Univer-Soul Language vol. I", which was awarded Mahogany's Spoken-Word Book of the Year, for 2005, and "The Outspoken Word". He published a line of Spiritual Journals and is in the process of publishing his debut novel, children's and poetry book, "Under the Cherry Tree".

Cedric Mixon graduated from Tennessee State University with a Bachelors in Electrical Engineering, then later an MBA in Marketing. Mixon also completed Screenwriting, Creative Writing, and Video Production courses from University of the Arts – Philadelphia.

All of Kobalt Books titles  stay true to the vision that Mixon had when it all began: Stories that cry out to our souls and at the same time makes us laugh and cry.
