About the Author:
Born in 1984 and raised in both North Philadelphia and the Germantown sections of Philadelphia, Yani knew she would be a writer at a young age. Starting with short versions of her own Tom & Jerry stories at only 5, Yani put her skill and talent to use in her grade school classes by writing other short stories to entertain her teachers and peers. Poetry became an interest to her at the age of 13 when she discovered her ability to free-style lyrical flows. Her first poem "Incomplete Dream" was published in University City's High School newspaper, but her rise to small fame in the school came after performing one of her best poetic pieces during a high school talent show, being the only student to receive a standing ovation. Her poem "Why Tyrone Can't Read" is still remembered by students and staff who run into her almost 13 years later. Yani has performed her poetry on the local hip-hop and R&B radio station Power 99FM, and other open-mic nights throughout Philadelphia. Though her ability to combine rhymes and metaphors together comes easily, her desire to become a published novelist was stronger than anything else. She wrote A Thug's Redemption at the age of 15 and immediately began looking for a publishing company to sign her on after high-school. After numerous rejections, Yani was picked up by "Publish America" in 2007. Deciding that she would rather be self-published and develop a publishing company of her own, she purchased her rights back to A Thug's Redemption, and began making moves to become a self-published author.
Though it has taken almost 13 years to get her first novel on the shelves of bookstores, finally the dream is being realized. A Thug's Redemption is now available for purchase.
Yani now resides in the West Oak-Lane section of Philadelphia with her 2 children and still writes daily.
