Shani and Friends One Year Anniversary!

Today marks one year since Shani T. Night published two children's books, illustrated by Reggie Howard, which marked the start of her journey as an author. Keep reading to see the Q & A with Shani!

"It's not odd to follow your dreams. It is odd not to." - Shani T. Night

On July 28, 2020, Shani T. Night published her first two books with Infinite Generations. Her books, The Art Boy Who Won't Share and I Am Simply Me & I Love Pie, started the popular "Shani and Friends Series".

For all of us who worked with Shani, we are celebrating a dream come true. For Shani, this anniversary marks the true meaning of celebrating life and accomplishing a dream that she always had. One night, everything changed for Shani when her illustrator, Reggie Howard, said he would illustrate her books.

"I wanted to write for a long time and I always wanted to inspire. Really, I was just waiting for my illustrator, so when Reggie said yes, that's how The Art Boy Who Won't Share came to be. As time goes on, I'm appreciative of these first two books more and more."

In one year, Shani has written 11 books, six of which are in the Shani and Friends Series. Since launching her author career, Shani's books can now be found on Barnes and Noble, Google Play, Apple Books, Amazon, Kobo, and other platforms.

"That's really what these books are, a celebration of life and the beautiful experiences that life can offer. It just so happens that a lot of those experiences are also learning experiences."

Her first books, The Art Boy Who Won't Share and I Am Simply Me & I Love Pie, will be available as e-books for the first time.

Mini Q & A with Shani T. Night

Q: What was one of the most surprising things you learned in creating your books?

A: I was surprised by how much I really enjoyed this process. I didn't expect to enjoy it this much. I thought I would just create one book and that would be it. Also, I didn't think I could be this creative. The other surprise is that other people really enjoyed my books as well. I'm always pleasantly surprised when people tell me that they like my stories.
