Ramona: Tell me more about your latest book
I have recently started my first story called “What can you see Wakiko”? A lively, quirky and colourful story about a bird named Wakiko and it’s journey whereby he meets different animals.
This is for pre-school children or for children whose first language is not English.
Ramona: What was the most challenging aspect of writing?
I don’t find writing a challenge, what I love about writing is that anything is possible. The most outlandish can happen to the unlikeliest characters. I write about anything that takes my interest and things I would have been interested as a child. I think it’s important that every child especially those who are having difficult times are able to find a book to relate to and to enhance the next generation with morals and values.
Ramona: What motivated you to become an author?
Teaching has definitely been the factor that has inspired me to write a book as I usually improvise and use props in story building in the Class. I usually make one up myself and what a great idea to make a storybook as well and share it with every young reader.
Ramona: How many books have you written so far?
“What can you see Wakiko”?
Amazing Shadows which will be released on 23rd of October 2019.
Ramona: What book or books have had a strong influence on you or your writing?
I love reading lots of books from inspirational, motivational and educational, but if I have to choose children’s books it would definitely be the “Charlie and Lola” series written by Lauren child and the classic “The Jolly Postman” by Allen and Janet Alhberg due to having a sneak peek into all your fairytale characters lives.
Ramona: What is your advice for aspiring writers?
A book is a perfect and very sentimental gift in enhancing the next generation around the world if you have the passion just go for it.
