Interview with Aida C. Emanuels

Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I've read so many books, but the one story I read that had an impact on me besides the books of the bible, was Ignite by Ron Moore. I met the author personally at a conference and throughout his entire book, from beginning to end, there was always something I was able to relate to in the stories he shared.
How do you approach cover design?
I had a vision of my cover design for my first book. I guess I will be able to elabarate more on this topic after my third or forth cover design. Then I will be able to make some comparisons.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
The Bible- It has given me guidance to live a fulfilled life. One full of hope.
The Circle Maker- Very Inspiring
Ignite- Very Motivating
Praying for my Life- Gives you the ability to relate and realize that we are all just ordinary people
What do you read for pleasure?
Online newspaper daily. www.msn.com
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in a small town called Wageningen located in Suriname, South America. I always wanted to do something different and writing an english non-fiction has been one of my greatest accomplishments since Dutch is my first language and English my second.
When did you first start writing?
I started writing about seven years ago, mostly short stories written in my own personal journals.
What's the story behind your latest book?
The story behind my latest book is a story of trust, surrendering, and freedom. A story detailing how God does the impossible and miraculous when you least expect it.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Sharing my stories to encourage others.
