I am Destiny Skai.... Author/Producer/Independent Filmmaker.....Ask Me Anything!!

Jan 9, 2018

I am currently signed under LDP and I have 5 books under my belt: The Fetti Girls (3 part series) and Bride of a Hustla (3 part series). Bride of a Hustla 3 is set to release sometime in January 2018. All books are available on Amazon.


Bride of a Hustla has also been made into a movie, which is available on YouTube for FREE and can also be purchased (DVD) through my company, Tha 'D' Spot. Heres the link, check it out:

I am working towards filming part 2 to the film, but I do not have the funding to do so. If you would like to make a donation, it will be used to pay for the film crew, editing, wardrobe, hair, make up, insurance, vehicles and locations.

Receiving this support will mean so much to me because I will be able to continue with my dream of bringing my books to the big screen. I will be very grateful for any donations received, even it's only $1.


I would like to thank you for taking the time out to attend my AMA. I appreciate you all.

If you just have to choose only one between being a FILMMAKER or AUTHOR, what will you prefer?

Writing has always been apart of my life and that is what I would stick to. I could always get someone else to produce my stories.

Success comes with perseverance and determination, what are your thoughts about it?

Dec 29, 1:21PM EST0

You have to be determined in order to be successful and with that it takes hardwork and sacrifices. Anything good won't be easy. It's definitely a tough process, but if you are passionate about your craft it makes it all worth it in the end.

What do you consider as the best film of all time?

Dec 27, 5:52PM EST0

That's a very tough question because there are so many amazing movies. However, I do have a few favorites and they are: Face Off, The Green Mile,  Grease, Four Brothers, The Five Heartbeats and What's Love Got To Do With It. I can watch all of those repeatedly.

Can you tell us briefly a short synopsis in the book Bride of a Hustla?

Dec 27, 3:36PM EST0

Sasha is caught up in a web of lies, deceit and greed, with her husband. When circumstances test the strength of their vows. Will Quamae's love prove to be unconditional, or will the truth destroy their bond and cause him to punish her in a way that he reserves for his enemies in the streets?

In The Fetti Girls, how was the story conceptualized?

Dec 27, 3:05PM EST0

I had a vision of women being ruthless killers, hustlers, deceptive and vindictive as men. Making them do whatever was necessary to make money.
