1. What
inspired you to write this book?
I was sitting in my house one day remembering
all sorts of things i had done in my life when these words came into my head
and I realized it was a poem. i continued to make up poems from things i had
done in my life as well as from my vision of the world and my


exactly is it about and who is it written for?
  It is about fun and
happiness, about fear and dread, about love and life, and some about war,
history and religion. It is written for a wide audience as there are a lot of
subjects in it. 


3. What do
you hope readers will get out of reading your book?
I hope they will get
an insight into my world and enjoy reading short poems. I call my writing word
art because i am painting a picture with words. I want the reader to imagine
the poem in pictures. 


4.How did
you decide on the books title and cover design
? I chose the title because
there are some very sad poems in the book, about people being trapped in
dungeons, I call these people nungeons and the children soup dragons. My
son, Yusif Ali, is a graphic designer and he did the art work for the
cover. It depicts me as the tree and the hearts are my seven children. 


5. What advice
or words of wisdom do you have for fellow writers other than run?
I would
encourage them to create stories around things which happen in their life and
use their imagination to create stories. 


6. Were
there experiences in your personal life or career that came in handy when
writing this book?
Yes, I spent 20 years living in the desert in Benghazi
Libya and this helped me imagine the sandman poems and the darkest day. I am
very interested in crime and a lot of the poems are about what happens to
people when they get kidnapped. 


7. How would
you describe your writing style, which writers or book is your style similar
I would describe it as word art painting pictures in word form and
keeping them short so people can memorize their favorite poems, I think my
style of writing is unique and new and i don’t think anyone else has the
same style. 


challenges did you overcome in the writing of this book?
I had to think of
rhyming words that still fitted in with the meaning of the poems. I had to
depict my thoughts through words and make sense of them.


   9.If people can read or buy one book this
week or month, why should it be yours?
I think my

book is very
entertaining and brings a lot of subject matter into people’s lives that they
can ponder on and think about. I think there are some lovely poems that
people can memorize like we memorize songs. I think it makes a very good
present for birthdays or Christmas.
