EXCLUSIVE: Pop Singer Manika Talks One Direction & Her New Book!

So, you're also an author. Can you tell us a bit about your latest book and how you approach the writing process?  

Songwriting and book writing are so similar yet so different. They are both creative and passionate. But the process for both is very different. I wrote my first book when I was 15 years old. And my second book 1,2,3 Publish Me! shows everyone how writing a book is done in just the three secret editing levels I discovered! I'm also working on a writing piece to help musicians and artists get started in the business. I will be posting all of these to my website.

Do you have an absolute favorite read?

Don Quijote by Cervantes. I read the original Spanish version when I was in high school. Such a classic!

What do you hope to accomplish in the next five years?

Aside from whatever success my fans are generous enough to give me, I have been thinking a long time about starting a charity.  I can't give the details of this charity quite yet but I hope to have details on my website next year.
