Synopsis of my new novel "A Thug's Redemption"

A Thug's Redemption


Anitbeet Productions and The Author Yani bring to you an Urban Tale filled with drama, love and suspense.  A Thug's Redemption tells the compelling story of one man's attempt to make amends for his wrong doings. After Jamal decides to take matters into his own hands by avenging his best friend's murder, he is forced into the street life, forever in debt to his cousin Samir, one of Philadelphia's biggest drug lords. After finding love, separating himself from the game, and turning his life around, fate comes into play when a desperate act by his younger brother Shawn brings back the haunting night from Jamal's past. Secrets are revealed, and Jamal is forced back into the street life to save his brother as well as himself. In this story about friendship, love, and the dangers of North Philly streets, Jamal will soon learn that mistakes are hard to clean up and they will cost him dearly in the end.

This urban drama will leave you on the edge of your seat, page after page, yearning to know what happens next. Vividly written by Philadelphia native Yani, A Thug’s Redemption is coming soon to a book store near you. Please show your support by purchasing this suspenseful tale.

I may have been as young as four or five years old and started writing my own short versions of the cartoon Tom & Jerry. I personally was tired of poor Tom being out smarted by that wretched mouse (lol) and figured I would write a few short stories where Tom finally got the upper hand. I remember I left the story on my mother's glassed dining room table…

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately.
