Imani’s one-act play Grace was produced by Pegasus Players Theatre Chicago after winning the 19th Annual Young Playwrights Festival in 2005.

Imani hasn’t penned any plays since, turning her sights to fiction instead. She now spends the majority of her time working on back story and teaching Dance Fitness classes.

You’ll probably catch her sending chapters to her beloved beta readers or choreographing new moves with her American bulldog Thor.
