Q & A about the book Otuna's Flute
Updated: Feb 10, 2019
How did you come up with the name Otuna?
I like combining names to make it sound unique, and that’s where I got the name Otuna. It is a combination of Otis and Una.
How about the name Jimmy White?
The name Jimmy White just popped into my head and I pictured a boy with curly blonde hair.
Who designed the map?
When I was still writing the book, I already envisioned of how it should look like. I had created a draft even before I found an illustrator. I was very specific on where to place the cities. The illustrator had done a good job, but I came up with something to add to it. So, I still made a couple of changes in Photoshop after.
What was your most favorite part in writing Otuna's Flute?
I loved the part when I was writing the story without thinking of the sentences yet, just the story. Writing down everything I could think of, creating the characters, inventing the names, and building the world of Verunia.
And your least favorite part?
Rewriting and editing.
