Muoh Joanne is a young writer born in the year 1995. She hails from the rich cultural state of Imo, Nigeria. From the tender age of 11, her love for reading novels has known no bounds and this played a major role in her love for composition thus pushing her to seek out an audience for her imaginative mind.
Joanne’s mantra is, if you can’t find any nice book to read from the shelf then write your story for life is an art and to live is an adventure to tell. As such, the world awaits the amazing journey, she would be walking us through. Being born into a closely-knit family, she was taught the importance of love and faith in God. She is currently a student of pharmacy at Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology and lives with her family in Benin Republic. she is a lover of animals and dreams of one day owning an animal shelter.
What is your writing process?
Okay, it may sound weird but I don't have a set writing process. For me, it changes. Sometimes, I start writing with the title of the book already in place and it kind of directs the rest of the story. Other times, I already have the characters alive in my mind, their conversations, the emotions etc its all so real to me that I have to write it down. After writing the story, then I have to think of a title that fits with the story. I prefer writing in the middle of the night and I write mostly during the holidays when i don't have to juggle other obligations such as being a student. I usually have one draft of my book before I send it in for professional editing and subsequent publishing.
How do you approach cover design?
For me, a cover design should depict a key element of one's story. For example, if a dark background and roses are used (as in mine) it shows the love element and the pain evident in the story. However, my cover designs are left in the capable hands of professionals to be reviewed by me.
