Meet Atlanta Author Amani Shakhete


Reading a good novel captures your imagination and takes you places no reality TV or television show can. Words are timeless. Everything worth knowing and remembering is in the written word. As authors, we do more than tell a good story. With the millions of characters we create, we offer you a chance to see yourself, get to know yourself and be who you most desire. All it takes is indulging yourself – one page at a time.  

Boss Amanishakhete (uh-ma-nee-sha-kete) is a writer, author and lyricist. She’s the author of the new multi-generational series “LaTonya Trilogy.” According to her readers ranging in ages 16-60, the storyline is refreshing, full of twists and keeps you guessing.
