Interview with Stella Sokefun-Salu

What are you working on next?
I have some romantic novel ideas that I am thinking about. I believe that when I choose one, I will not disappoint my readers.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
For the love of Ben presently published with Smashwords.
How do you approach cover design?
For the cover design, I let the story guide what my cover will look like. The cover and title should give an idea of what the story is about.
What motivated you into writing children's books?
I am a grandmother and I see the joy in the faces of my grandchildren when I tell them stories at bedtime anytime they come over. My mom told me stories and enjoyed them and I wanted to share the same experience of joy with my grandchildren and other children.
What is your writing procedure?
First I have an idea, then I start to jot things down, mostly in short notes. Sometimes I realise that I have put down up 5-10 pages. The ideas are however disjointed. Sometimes I would have written the end of the story and then I go back to start expanding. Before I am through with the short notes, I would have gotten the title of my book.
What do you read for pleasure?
I love reading romantic novels.
