The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, “ Abba, Father.”
Romans 8:15 NIV

Hi Amy!  Thanks for taking the time to join us on Brice's Mice Christian Book Reviews. Can you tell us a little about yourself?
Mount Carmel Israel

My name is Amaka Ekwegh but my family and friends call me "Amy." I live and work in London and I'm a deep thinker, usually quiet until I get to know people. Then my crazy side appears. My laughter is loud and embarrassing sometimes. I enjoy dancing but shy to dance in public though. I don't like shopping and trends.


We've read a couple of your books, but share with our readers what your favorite genre is.
I write fictions and Christian inspirational.

Sounds great! What is your current book about, and what inspired you to write it?
My current book is about living a purposeful life as a single person. I believe life and different encounters with single and married people inspired me to write. Through many conversations, I realized that some single people get stuck in the mentality that they need to get married before they can start fulfilling their purpose. On the other hand, some of the married ones wish they could rewind time so that they could focus on identifying and developing themselves.
I wrote Making the Most of Your Single Life in order to encourage Christians, especially single ones to live, explore and develop themselves while single. I believe there is a whole lot of things to do before marriage commitment kicks in.

Did you find doing research on your book difficult?
Modern Day Jerusalem
The books I have written so far are based on personal life experiences so I don't find it difficult researching. However, I use the Bible and Google for research. Sometimes, I ask people questions.

Sounds like a lot of work, but well worth it. Did you design your book cover?
My sister helped me design the book cover. I am still praying for visual creativity.

Your covers are beautiful, but I'm curious to know if you prefer print editions or E-Books?
I prefer to feel a book in my hands. The fact that I can run through the pages give me joy.

Nazareth Israel
Besides reading, what is an interesting fact about yourself that you would like to share with us?
I enjoy traveling to different countries, learning different cultures and trying new food.

Sea of Galilee Israel
Do you have any fun hobbies?
I love writing and traveling, I tend to make at least one trip outside the UK each year. I have been to about 12 countries so far.

River Nile Egypt
Wow! That sounds amazing! I'm guessing there are more books in your head just waiting to come out. How do you relax?
I try to read a book, cook something new, bake or dance.

With such a busy life, where do you see yourself in 5 years?
River Jordan

I would love to have my own family. I hope to have several published best-sellers and also be able to encourage young women on different platforms.

Amy, this has been such an amazing interview. You have so much knowledge and experience to
Pyramids Egypt
continue with many more books. Thanks for taking the time to share a bit of your life.

Sounds like a lovely premise for a book. I know several women who feel unfulfilled because they are not married. Although I'm sure your book will resonate with men as well as women, Amy, I feel women are more conscious and uncomfortable about being single. This is a lovely interview. I enjoyed reading it.

Wow. Interesting and quite timely. I have read Beyond The Pews and looking forward to ravaging this new release. Where can one find it?

Really proud of you dear! Aaaand.. 12 countries?! Yhoooo!!! When I grow up! Haha.
I agree with your sentiments.. There's so much one can fulfill when they are single and I believe it's the one season in your life you can pack up and trot the globe; create memories and experiences and learn without worrying about someone else.
