What inspired you to write this book?
I love adventure and a sense of adventure made me write Little World and when I began writing it made me create many more fascinating tales that I simply couldn’t stop and here I am; with a publication and a tale to share.
How did you choose the title?
I chose the title because of a myth. In the story, the characters travel to a secret place named Little World and when I chose the title, I added The Magical Surrender to Little World since the characters go through an adventure of the will to survive when a world sets out to challenge them.
What obstacles did you encounter in getting this book published? How did you overcome them?
I had to learn many more things about the publishing industry. I first encountered Writers Literary Agency from whom I got Strategic Publishing and Eloquent Books published my Books. In this very competitive industry I had to learn to be one of the best and by learning many more things, I learnt to keep my work professional and this has helped me a lot getting my work and publication going.
How did you know you wanted to be a writer? How did you get started?
I began writing when I was attending High School where writing fascinated me and I was one of the best English Student in my school and my writing developed beyond means and I was a local Queen of writing and still am and I began to write fascinating essays, stories which got me many awards and since then it has become my career and when I wrote my first Book Little World – The Magical Surrender with the help of Eloquent Books, publishing has become my happiness.
Do you have any writing rituals?
Yes, keep things organized, it helps a lot in making your daily live living easier especially when you are a writer. Get up early in the morning to enjoy sunrise and the day becomes yours for writing. Night is an oasis for writing. When you write, ideas come more freely and when you are an imaginative writer, images come naturally. Decorating your writing place, keeping a study, developing yourself as a writer helps you promote your work more. After all, writing is creative.
How do you come up with the names for your characters?
I string the characters names with my own choice of names. For instance, I think Stewart Gordon is nice but when I see Ian who would match my Character, I place Ian Gordon for a nice feel to the name and I use Stewart Blake for another character. Watching names reading names that strike you also helps from movies, books, magazines, television is a very great source.

I gathered many well-wishers many fans who adore me and it keeps me laughing. I learnt to be creative and a modern idea of publication is what I need being who I am. A huge fan of writing.
If you were doing it all over again, what would you do differently?
If I were doing it all over again, I would learn to make myself happy because you go through many self facing journey and it is challenging that I feel writing is meant to be more light and creative. It feels you go over the moon and never come back. It is tough getting things done in a geography dealing with people, getting yourself recognized properly, introducing yourself properly, living a life of a writer and author when you should have many resources to be one. When starting, a nice career to supplement your writing is very good for the industry is very expensive with prices and you need to have a PHD to get started, that’s what they say, grin. A nice home especially for writing is another great idea to have your dreams to yourself. Becoming a nice person and having a vibrant personality is another great achievement to promote yourself in style. It helps with the image of yourself as a striking author.
