1. What inspired you to write your book?

When I decided to write my first book, I felt that I had a good story to write – a story that will benefit others who may find themselves in a similar position in which I found myself. The name of the book is I am Cancer Free: A memoir

2. How long did it take you to write your book?


I did not start writing about my bout with cancer until after eight years. I wanted to be sure that I was indeed cancer free and could convey that message to the world. It took me about three months to write because it is not very long. I have since written much longer books than that one

3. What is one thing you would love someone to take away after reading your book?

Never give up. The doctor in Trinidad gave up on me. My husband, children, and others did not.

4. Describe your book in three words.

Inspiring, motivational, and heart –warming.

5. Who will enjoy your book the most?

Persons who have cancer or have a loved one going through that ordeal.
Incidentally, the book received a five-star review and seal from Readers Favorite in 2017.

6. What was one experience in life where you realised books had the power to make meaningful change, on either you or the world?

My father was an educator and he instilled in us from childhood the need to read books. He taught us that ‘a good education is better than gold.’
He had a huge library with books for every age, and my sisters and I spent a lot of time in there, reading. My parents had ten children and each one of them excelled in their careers and held top positions in Trinidad and Tobago and abroad.
I compiled my father’s memoirs after his death.
Memoirs of Dr.A.M.Khan: Journey of an Educator.

7. What is your favourite book?

My favorite book is Power of Positive Thinking by Norman Vincent Peale.

8. What do you think is most important to being a powerful writer?

To be a powerful writer you must know how to bring characters to life and invoke the reader’s emotion.

10. When you write, who do you envision you’re writing to?

When I write I hope that tons of persons will read my book. However, that is a pipe dream.

11. Is there anything you edited out of your book you would have liked to have seen stay, in retrospect?

Nothing I can think of.

12. Does writing energise or exhaust you, or a bit of both?

I will say a bit of both,.

13. What did you enjoy most- and least- about the process of creating your book?

Writing is easy and enjoyable, but re-reading and editing can be tedious.

14. Did you often suffer from writer’s block whilst writing? Any tips to overcome it?

It happens sometimes, but when you leave the writing for a while, take a vacation and return, your mind opens up to new ideas.

15. What common traps do you think first-time writers fall into, and how can new writers avoid them?

I think every writer will have a different experience.
We all learn by mistakes.
Mistakes will happen. Do not let them make you think that you have failed. Consider mistakes as part of the learning process.


Who is your favourite author?

Lee Child is my favorite author.

17. What about favourite films?

I like mysteries, drama, and comedy.

She faced many challenges such as cancer, deaths of loved ones, and an accident, which made her realize that life is very short.On the other hand, she landed a new job in an Insurance company and had numerous travel opportunities after she left her job at the bank.
The author has surely proven that when she retired from her first job she definitely did not retire from life. For her, Retirement is indeed fun.


REVIEWS


Review by Readers Favorite:

Retirement is Fun: A New Chapter by Brenda Mohammed is an interesting memoir where the author shares with readers her moments after retirement and how it is a time when everyone should sit back and enjoy life. After reading this book, no one will dread retirement. They will all look forward to it and use that time to enjoy the beauty of life, spend more time with the family, and experience their unconditional love. Retiring from the job does not mean one retires from life because one gets time to appreciate the beauty of unlimited time and use it effectively by doing things they missed out on doing while they were working
.
The book is uplifting as it makes everyone who is going to retire look forward to it. The author's experiences and adventures after retirement give readers ideas on how to handle their lives in a good and happy way after retiring from their jobs. Brenda Mohammed shows by example how one's attitude can make a difference to everything and life can be enjoyed at any age, irrespective of whether you are young or not.
The memoir is simple and chronicles the author's life and events, taking readers into her space. The memoir is a good read; readers can connect well with what the author says and the events and experiences in her life and the way she handles life is tangible. The words of wisdom from Dr Murdoch quoted at the end of the book are very inspirational and will help readers look at life in a positive way. An interesting book for all those who are going to retire from their jobs and want to know how to handle life after that.



Comment by a British Writer Margaret Lossl shared on LinkedIn

"We all face challenges. I have found that 'what doesn't kill you will make you stronger' to be true. I have recently met an inspirational writer Brenda Mohammed and in her book 'Retirement is Fun: A New Chapter' (Amazon) she reveals her triumph over hazardous challenges. Her positive outlook and faith carry her through the difficult phase between her high-profile job in a bank and retirement, but it is in these halcyon days of retirement, that life really throws her a curved ball. No matter what you are going through, make it count and enable growth. You are not alone.
Retirement is Fun: A new Chapter was a nominee in the Metamorph's Publishing Summer Indie Book Awards 2016.
