Featured Interview With Winnifred Tataw
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
Hi, my name is Winnifred or Winnie. I reside in South Carolina and am an undergraduate at the College of Charleston. I was born in the U.S. and my parents are from Cameroon, Africa. As a military child, I have traveled extensively around the US East Coast and Germany, learning about the history, lore, and culture of each region. I love to spread positivity and joy to those around me and look at the world through a glittery pink lens.
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
Since elementary school (about age 7), I’ve always had a passion for reading and storytelling. As I got older, around 10-11, I began to put my stories onto paper.
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
Definitely Marissa Meyer and Lois Lowry. Those two women can write some books! Their stories always captivate me and expand my imagination. And to work with Marissa Meyer on a book one day, would be magical!
Tell us a little about your latest book?
My latest book is the third book in my The Gods’ Scion YA fantasy series, The Lone Star Child. It takes on more of a sci-fi theme, but I love it so much. I cried so much writing some of the scenes too, goddess! My books are heavily charactered oriented. And the plot just goes hand in hand with the character’s motives, decisions, and pain. They are a beautiful fantasy world set in modern times with real-world problems and issues.
