When Imani first wrote her poem about the planets in summer of 2017, I was blown away by her talent as a writer and was even more excited when she was bold enough to ask if she could turn it into a book. My mission as her mom is to nurture her talents, motivate her to be confident in herself, and to be her biggest supporter in everything she does. I am so proud of how much she has achieved. The most recent and super exciting accomplishment I am honored to announce is that her first book, Disco Balls of the Universe, has been rated 5 stars by Readers' Favorite.

Imani Ariana is so grateful and truly excited about her journey as an author. We are very grateful to God for his many blessings he has bestowed upon us including an amazing team of people that we are blessed to work with. Our super awesome and knowledgeable Publisher, Dr. Melissa-Sue John of Lauren Simone Publishing House. Dr. John has been a very supportive publisher since the beginning of our journey. Thank you, Dr. John, for having our best interest at heart and providing us with all the resources needed for a successful journey.
Although Imani had her own vision of her story, she admits she is not a great artist. Therefore, bringing the story to life with pictures was a challenge. Her story would not have come to life without the creative talents of the sibling team, Zachary-Michael Clarke, and Simonne-Anais Clarke.
We continue to be grateful to all our supporters, family and friends and look forward to more success in the future.
