What's the story behind your latest book?
I wanted to tell my story in the hope that people would understand what it is like to go through a war and hope that we have peace in this world. It also helped to heal my wounds. I was able to express myself and know that my story will live on and my family and others will understand the journey and that life can throw you difficult situations but you have to push through and not give up.
What do your fans mean to you?
