Interview with Taneeka
Question: How long did it take you to write Broccoli Chronicles?
Answer: It took a little over six years.
Question: Why did it take you so long?
Answer: For many reasons. First, I had a limited background in Children’s Fiction and needed to familiarize myself with this style of writing. Second, in addition to writing the novel, I had to divide my time between creating/managing a publishing company and marketing my book. Third, I’m a full-time teacher, wife, and mother.
Question: What inspired you to create the Little Kids, Big Voices book series?
Answer: Being a teacher has allowed me to see first-hand what is missing at home and in the school system. I wanted to write books that encourage kids to be leaders and to devote more of their time to reading. I believe my humorous, inspiring, and educating book series will encourage kids to incorporate reading into their daily routine.
Question: What do you love about Myrtle?
Answer: I love everything about Myrtle especially her courage and funny sense of humor.
Question: How many books are in the Little Kids, Big Voices series?
Answer: At least six.
Question: When is the next book coming out?
Answer: Well, Broccoli Chronicles will be released in November 2014. The second book is scheduled for December 2015.
Question: Do you plan to write any other books outside of this book series?
Answer: Yes!! Some say that the sky is the limit. Well, for me, there is no limit. We should push to reach even higher; higher beyond what our eyes can see and our mind can comprehend. I plan to challenge myself.
