Now on to the interview!

Hey Ilham! First I want to say welcome to Two Chicks on Books I’m glad you could stop by for a chat! WONDER WALK sounds adorable and I can’t wait for everyone to read it!

For the readers: can you tell us a little bit about WONDER WALK and the characters?

Wonder Walk is really about the simple pleasure of a neighborhood walk. I mean, Who hasn’t taken a stroll around their local streets or park on a lovely summer’s day with their family and loved every second of it? How many moms we have seen taking a walk with their kids or you as a mom have also done that, right? Also, once the kids begin talking, they begin asking their questions, some of which are hilarious in their innocence, some of which end up stumping you as you search for an answer. So in Wonder Walk, little Johnny asks his Mommy questions about the sunflowers, the birds, the insects that they see, while out enjoying a walk.

What are you working on now?

I always have things on the go. My mind never stops working! I’ve written dramatic fiction short stories and have had it published in journals; I’m working on a crime thriller novel right now, inspired by the many hours of true crime podcasts I’ve binged on; and also I have the manuscripts for two other children books ready. I also blog about my favourite kids books and my travelling over at StoryMummy.com 

Were any of the characters in the book inspired by people from your real life?

My eldest son was my inspiration. I had written the story after I came back from such a walk  

Who was your favorite character to write? What about your least favorite?

I enjoyed writing both Johnny and Mommy as I was depicting the relationship between my son and I.

What is your favorite passages/scenes in WONDER WALK?

Can I say that I love them all?!?

What inspired you to write Kidlit?

Again the inspiration to write Kidlit came from my son. Prior to becoming a mom, I barely read any Kidlit except for the books that I would read to the kids as a Kumon tutor. Now, I’m a voracious Kidlit reader!

About Ilham:

My name is ILHAM which is pronounced the way its spelt. As a kid, I hated my name and did get teased for being a “ham”. But now that I’m an adult, I love the unique-ness and the strength that my name conveys. I definitely have not met another Ilham for sure.

It means inspiration in Arabic, by the way.

I live with my 2 sons & my husband and my 20lb kitty, Beauty, within a house thats booby-trapped with Lego. My crazy family are my inspiration for story writing and story-telling, And I love to travel with them as well and earning new memories through adventures abroad, some of which I have documented in this blog.
