Teranga Interviews

This blog honors Teranga - the Senegalese tradition of generous hospitality.

It hopes to celebrate and feature artists and writers from diverse walks of life whose works and professional ethics help to promote diversity and solidarity.

Writers on the Couch 

Are you a published author or screenwriter who believes in Teranga? Then grab a cocktail, wine glass or whichever drink strikes your fancy and get comfy on the Teranga couch. Readers would love to hear from you. 

You will be asked to respond to ten questions, nothing tricky - seven of these will be chosen from a list of standard questions; the other three will be custom questions of your own choice.

From humorous to dramatic, you set the tone. Let your personality shine. :) 

All standard questions are listed below:

1. If you could rewrite the ending of any book of film, which would it be and how?

2. Your sin

3. What have been your struggles as a writer?

4. A Hollywood studio is all over one of your books. Which is it and tell me about the director and/or cast.

5. Your favorite non-writing day?

6. One of your favorite countries to visit?
