It's very hard for me to put this interview out here for anyone to listen because, let's face it, I'm better at writing than speaking. I was so nervous.
The interviewer is Peter Tardif from CBC Radio One.
I'm still too emotional about it to comment, but I'd update my post whenever I can.
Here it is,
Today, I was lucky enough to have my first radio interview about AMANI: Remember.
Was it stressful? Yes
Did I mess up a few words along the way? Of course
Did it make me realize I often use expressions such as "hm" and "like" when I speak? Um-hm
But would I do it all over again because it was such a great experience and I believe an author should not only be able to write well, but to speak well?
Today, I overcame my fear of public speaking, even though I was only facing a single person. I write for a reason. I have difficulty expressing my ideas, in French as well as in English. When I'm stressed out or simply emotional (fear, happiness, anger, or any emotion, really) all the words from my next sentence are thrown in the back of my brain, scattered like pieces of a puzzle before you start putting them together. And my job is to make sense of them before I open my mouth. I've never understood why, but it is definitely something I need to work on.
To my right, you can see the radio host, Genevieve Hebert. From the start, she was very sweet and she explained to me how radio interviews work. She made me feel comfortable, which helped me relax and avoid babbling my way through my answers. Though, hearing my heart beating in my ears, I did have to concentrate to speak proper French.
For the full interview, you can listen in French or read the English translation.
We are today!

After finishing her first draft, she attended a three-week creative writing course at the University of Oxford, where she realized that her first manuscript was very badly written. Fortunately, the idea behind the writing was “so unique and different,” according to an early critique of the novel, that she decided to write the entire manuscript anew, from a blank page to the epilogue.
She enjoys books that transports her into a new world and characters that are both original and
