Interview with Sekou Gaidi

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The greatest joy of writing, to me, is the chance to tell a story from my heart, a chance to entertain and educate. Ideally, everyone who reads my book will learn something new.
What are you working on next?
I'm working on the church plays for Friendship Missionary Baptist Church currently, constantly working on both the Theater Ministry and the choir. Stage is my life, and I also have three more novels ready to go. We goin' cosmic for the next ones! Other than that, I will keep looking for auditions and seeking to entertain and educate others.
Who are your favorite authors?
I enjoy Piers Anthony's off-beat humor and creativity, and my favorite series is Xanth. I am fond of Anne Bishop and her dark worlds. Terry Brooks gave me inspiration to delve into my world's past and far into its future.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
I want to do well, serve God and family, and express the art in my soul.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Singing ànd acting occupys a lot of my non writing time. I work cleaning a theater so I can learn about the art and the business of it. I help my mom at her daycare…when all else fails there's always study.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I usually find them in paper form first, to tell the truth. I'm a diehard book fan.
