I didn’t set out to write books. I wanted to read and publish. But at some point I was inspired when I read Toni Morrison saying ‘if there is a book you want to read but it has not been written yet, you must be the one to write it.’ After I’d made up my mind to self-publish, swallowing the sensation of ego tripping and self-aggrandisement, there were some possibilities to be published by others.
