1. Tell me about yourself?
My name is Imani Lewis, I’m a singer/songwriter, author, and voice actor. I just graduated with my Bachelor’s degree in Marketing a month after welcoming my brand new baby girl into the world. I’m getting married next month, so my world is pretty busy at the moment.
2.What are your favorite books to read?
I read so many different genres but recently I’ve been really into the dark bully romances for some reason. Every couple of months I’ll read different genres so I’m not stuck on one specific type of book.
3. When did you decide you were going to write a book?
In October of 2019, a book idea came to me and I told myself I NEEDED to write it. A day after that, I found out about NanoWriMo so I participated that year and ended completing my debut novel, On A Cloudy Day. That was my first time ever completing a manuscript I started.
4. How did you come up with the name of your book?
It was the name of the first poem I created for the poetry book and I loved it so much. The poem came to me randomly one night and I was like “that’s a really good idea for a book”.
5. What are you working on for 2021
I recently released my poetry book, Clouds are like People. I have the second book in my Cloudy Day series, Under the Moon, releasing in September and a holiday romance I’m very excited about called A Holiday with the Devil releasing in December.
6. How long have you been writing?
I’ve been writing books since I was in elementary school because reading has always been a magical experience for me. I wanted to gift that experience to someone else with my words.
7.What advice would you give other authors?
Never ever give up. I know that sounds cliche but it’s true. The minute you finally finish that manuscript will be the best feeling in the world. Please push yourself, do whatever it is you need to cross over that finish line.
8. Where can people find you online?
I have a website: www.manitheauthor.com
Instagram & Twitter : @manitheauthor

My kitchen! I don’t bother with going out when I can make it right at home while I’m working.

I do! I have so many books planned for 2021 and 2022 I’m so excited for you guys to read them!
12. How many books have you written?
I have written a total of 5 books so far.
13. Did you go to college to be a writer?
I actually went to college originally to be a veterinarian. Then I changed my major to journalism due to my passion for writing, but ultimately settled on marketing because it fit me more
