Q & A:
The best thing about writing this book?
To be honest, it is all the great reviews I have had. I am not sure if I truly believed my stories would be of such interest to people until the reactions to my story started coming in. The fact that complete strangers in different corners of the world are sitting there reading my mind, inside my thoughts and actually relating to the events, makes me feel unbelievably humble in one way. I have only recently realized the seriousness of what I do and the real effect it can have on others.
Where did you get your idea for this story?
I was inspired to write Kill Daddy after I returned from my roller coaster ride In Kenya and Uganda. Everyone was asking me-What is Africa like? I couldn’t sum it up into an adequate enough reply. Then as I began writing about the journey I realized I was leaving out an important part of the story, which was- Why did I go there in the first place? Writing about myself and exposing myself to you all is honest but a little difficult. However, if I am to inspire and connect with people and find those who can identify with my journey, then I believe that writing is like art and must come from the heart.
