Sorry it has taken me so long to answer. I was just finishing my latest book: An African in Imperial London: The Indomitable Life of A.B.C. Merriman-Labor.
Merriman-Labor is a forgotten pioneer of African literature, and the hardest thing about writing his biography was not knowing how the story would end! When I began my research little was known about his life. It has been a joy and a challenge to do this work. What about you? What is the hardest thing about writing for you?(less)
