Wisteria by Bisi Leyton Blog Tour Interview

Sixteen year old Wisteria Kuti has two options—track the infected around the Isle of Smythe or leave the only known safe haven and face a world infested with flesh eating biters. But even with well-armed trackers, things go wrong and Wisteria ends up alone facing certain death, until she is rescued by the mysterious Bach. Uninfected, Bach is able to survive among the hordes of living dead.

Seventeen year old Bach, from a race known as The Family, has no interest in human affairs. He was sent here to complete his Great Walk and return home as a man—as a Sen Son. The Family regard humans as Dog People, but Bach is drawn to this Terran girl, whom he has never seen before, but somehow knows.

Hunted by flesh eaters, cannibals, and the mysterious blood thirsty group called Red Phoenix, Wisteria and Bach make their way back to the Isle of Smythe, a community built on secrets and lies. 

1. What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?

The thing is sometimes I get so caught up in a scene that I just can’t seem to stop myself. I tend to write everywhere when I’m on a roll, even written in the bathroom.

2. Night owl, or early bird?

I’d definitely a night owl although I seem to be most effective if I start writing first thing in the morning. I just love my sleep way too much.

3. One food you would never eat?

Cucumbers, I’ve hated them since I was a kid and I’d rather not eat then eat those. Even writing about them is making me feel it.

4. Any other books in the works? Goals for future projects?

I’m finishing up the third book in the Wisteria series which I hope to get out early 2013, but in the mean the second book Myopia is out.

I’m also outlining my next series which will be another YA paranormal romance. This one will be based on Abikus from Yoruba folklore. This book will be more intense than the Wisteria series and more overtly magical.

5. What inspired you to want to become a writer?

I’ve always have vivid imagination and used to fantasize about all kind of scenarios as a child, but it wasn’t until I got to college that I realised I was actually good at writing short stories. My college English Literature instructor made me finally believe I could write something that people wanted to read (outside of my family).

6. What was your favorite book when you were a child/teen?

I have loved and still love anything by Roald Dahl. In many ways he inspired me to be a writer.

I was also very much into Sweet Valley High, but my parents never bought me those kinds of books, so I had make up my own stories.
