Today, we have an opportunity to talk to K.A. Mulenga. K.A. Mulenga has written the book, DONK AND THE STUBBORN DONKEYS.
First, let me thank you for joining me. I appreciate you giving me your links and I want to share those with our readers.
Can you tell us a little about yourself and what led you to start writing?
My name is Kalenga Augustine Mulenga aka K.A. Mulenga. My passion is writing. I started writing when I was 10 years old and my passion was reignited by my 11 year old son. Writing runs in my blood as my late father was a journalist and the first black editor of the Zambia Daily Mail and my late brother was a poet. To date, I have published 8 children's eBooks on Amazon. I love writing children’s books with a positive message and also to make them laugh and entertained. I am a prolific writer and currently have 9 edited and completed manuscripts.
I am busy with a memoir and after that I would like to write some fiction and non-fiction in the near future.
One of my books, Donk and the Stubborn Donkeys was #1 Bestseller Juvenile Fiction > Animals > Farm Animals
Where do you get your inspiration, information, and ideas for books?
The ideas just come to me, especially since I’m a father, sometimes the ideas come from my kids and other times from when I was young
What are your hobbies and do they ever play into your writing?
I love reading, writing, watching movies and series, sports(basketball, tennis, golf), I am also a HUGE Liverpool Football Club fan.
What advice would you give someone who wants to be a writer?
Go for it! It’s hard work but the benefits are immense since you are bring joy and knowledge to other people
How do you schedule your time to write?
I run my own accounting and tax firm so my time is split between that and writing. Since I am a relatively new writer and self-published ,I have to do all the marketing myself. Its hard work but my goal is to eventually be a full-time writer by the end of the year
What is your favorite part about writing?
The end product…and getting it out there for everyone to enjoy!
Please tell us about your current release.
My latest book is called Will and His Best Friend Whale. It is about the dangers of plastic in our oceans and seas
Can you read / provide us with a small exert?
Will was the nicest boy in his town.
All the boys of his age had other boys for best friends, but Will had a unique best friend. Will’s best friend was Whale. When all the other boys were riding bikes and playing catch with their best friends, Will could be found at the harbour, playing with Whale.
All the adults in the town loved Will, but the other boys in the town used to make fun of him and call him names. They gave him a horrible nickname: Weird Will.
The children of the town even made up a song about him. It went like this:
“Weird Will, Weird Will, the Weirdest Boy in Town
Weird Will, Weird Will, has no friends around
Weird Will, Weird Will, never wants to play
Weird Will, Weird Will, just at the harbour all day.”
But Will didn’t care much because to him, Whale was the best friend any boy could have
What exciting story are you working on next?
I have 9 manuscripts that need to be illustrated and published
Wow! That will keep you busy for sure! I better let you go so you can get to it!!
