Meet 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.

    Yani did a really good job with this book. I fell in love with the characters because they were so easy to relate to. Some parts have you cracking up, some parts have your mouth open like wow and some parts do get you a little teary eyed. Loved it! I definitely can't wait for the sequel
