India Summers was born and raised, and currently resides in Harlem, NYC.
India has been writing all of her life. Her writing is inspired by Hip Hop, R&B, and Soul music, that was played in the apartments that she grew up in. That led her to practicing ghostwriting songs for R&B singers like Ashanti when she was as young as 7-10 years old. India was also inspired to write after she was given her first urban fiction book by her mother. The book is called "The Coldest Winter Ever" By Sister Souljah. That led India to practicing novel writing. India then wrote her way through elementary school, middle school, and college. She won numerous scholarships to study and travel abroad, because of her essays. India's goal after college was to be an editor for a black fashion magazine. When India graduated college and went through some difficult things, her first reaction to that pain was to write about it. India then published her first poetry book, and the rest was history. India now teaches anything that involves reading, writing, and books, at the best private schools in NYC. India is now 28 years old. She published her first poetry book at 23 years old.
India Summers books are independently written, edited, designed, published, publicized, marketed, and sold by India Summers.
