Smashwords Interview

What do you read for pleasure?
I enjoy reading christian literature, not only for mere pleasure, but for my spiritual nourishment. I also like reading newspapers which are published daily by our local press. Indeed, I have a passion for adult fiction which has been written by other inspiring authors.
What are your comments about your writing experience?
In fact, writing a worthwhile and a palatable book is not an easy assignment. It is a time consuming and energy draining exercise which requires a lot of patience. I didn't write "The Maid" in a conducive atmosphere. I experienced many heart breaking challenges from within and without, especially from the traditional publishing companies which were quite reluctant to publish my novel, even though the Chief Editors affirmed that the book was interesting and publishable! Nevertheless, even though I was turned down and discouraged by the publishers many times, I didn't give up. My unquenchable desire to publish the novel continued to burn within me. Finally, the Living God led me to Smashwords Publishing Platform and now my dream has been realized.
