Interview with 'Bimbo Ekundayo - Adelani

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in the midst of elderly people in a very local Nigerian environment. It makes me to write deep issues that affects human emotion and also to be sensitive to what my readers' feelings towards every jot of the letter i write will be. I was also brought up by Christian parents who made sure i knew Jesus as my Lord early in life, Which is how I know him as the solution to all of man's ilks on earth; naturally this reflect sooner or later in my writings.
When did you first start writing?
I first started writing storries at the age of eleven when i was in primary four. Then i cut out some pieces of paper, fixed them together in the middle to make a book, and I began to write my fathers history in story form in it.
What's the story behind your latest book?
My latest book, Boko Haram Part1, The Habinger was influenced by the on going Boko Haram problem in my country. The fact that I have stayed a little in the Northern part of the country, made me to have an understanding of the religious and cultural factors that produced people who could do the evil that the sect is unleashing on the country
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I was searching for an outfit that could take the issue of production and wide distribution of my books off my shoulder when i stumbled upon an article written on smashwords by a smashwords' published author on line. It was an answer to a prayer.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Well' it's distributing my books wider than any other publishing outfit can.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The greatest joy of writing is summed up in Albert Camus words "a literature of despair is a contradiction in terms" There is nothing like having an outlet for your thoughts and imaginations. It's like letting off the steam in a productive and useful way.
What do your fans mean to you?
They mean success. They are proves that am doing something worthwhile and that i've found my voice at last. And oh! They also mean my daily bread! (laughs)
What are you working on next?
Presently am working on a romantic novel serial titled, Flaming Tattoos. Part 1&2 will be out before the end of this month. Part 1 will be free. Watch out!
