How long have you been writing?
I have been writing for as long as I can remember but didn’t publish any of my work of fiction until recently. I was a university professor and so was more focused on researching and publishing academic papers. I am now into full-time writing.

Yes, I have always wanted to write; although, I didn’t initially think of publishing my creativewriting.
What is the name of your book?
Neona is an island where life and legends are a mix of good and unthinkable evil. Initiated into these legends from childhood, little Ina asked too many questions but over time grew to be a woman who silently questioned the beliefs and customs of her people. Even though she avoided crisis at all costs, her life blazed from one crisis to another. Just when she finally finds reprieve, her sanctuary is broken. On her daughter’s fifteenth birthday, Ina discovers an exquisite shell by the sea shore. The same day, a stranger mysteriously arrives on island. Little did she know that this would herald the beginning of a harrowing threat to a secret island life as it had existed for centuries and lead to unprecedented turmoil for her family. Faced with what seems like insurmountable challenges as a mother and grandmother, Ina must make a heart wrenching choice in order to comply with tradition. Consumed by guilt, self-loathing and pain, she transforms into a rebel….
“Your granddaughter has to go, so we can have peace here.”
Ina knew the only way people, dead or alive, left the island. The implication was clear to her. Arisa expected her to grasp the message. And she did.
Ocean’s Daughter is available in multiple e-book formats readable on virtually any e-book reader.
