Imani True

Imani has been writing since she could hold a pencil. Her early works consisted of poetry and short stories written under the name C. Highsmith-Hooks. Her first book, “The Soul of a Black Woman: From a Whisper to a Shout,” was published in 2002.  The collection of reflective poetry earned her a spot in Literary Divas: The Top 100+ Most Admired African-American Women in Literature, a 2006 Amber Books Publication.

Imani's collaboration with Ms. Dreama Skye produced Strawberries, Stilettos and Steam, a collection of erotic stories published by NCM Publishing in the summer of 2010. That same year, one of Imani's stories was featured in Between the Sheets, a Delphine Publications collection. Both books received 2011 African American Literary Awards.  

In early 2011, Inner Child Publications entitled The Poetic Child included some of Imani's poems.

A Native New Yorker at heart, Imani currently resides in Las Vegas where she is working on several anthologies, e-books, and screenplays. She is also gearing up for the release of her first novel in the genre of erotic crime dramas entitled A Little Sumthin Sumthin.

Several more will follow.
