Interview with Dalous Gabriel Yaw

What do you read for pleasure?
Mostly I read books on fiction which teach moral lessons. Stories with suspense and emotions are my kind of stories especially if they have any connection to my personal life and the life of people I know. I like Politics and so I also read a lot of new papers on current world affair.
What are you working on next?
I am working on a book that has some moral lessons for today's polarized society. It is a story about how two beautiful innocent school kids, through their love for each other despite their difference in race and against the wishes of their parents, changed the dynamics of a whole city. Very interesting and fascinating book. Coming out soon.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Ghana, a small country in West Africa. in my country our customs, traditions and in general our cultural set up has played a leading role in my writings. Growing up, I listened and learnt a lot of wisdom from some of the folklores told by my grand parents. Beside this, my own difficulties and challenges growing up in the mist of poverty has had a tremendous effect on what stories I write.
