Segullah Podcast “WORDS FALL IN” with Ilima Todd

By Melonie Cannon

Stop the clocks! I decided it was time to interview a novelist on our podcast and I found a great interviewee in Ilima Todd.

Ilima Todd never wanted to be a writer (she was a physicist), but one day decided she would like to try. Lots of practice later, her novel Remake was published. Later, there was a sequel named Resist, where she tells the other side of the story. Recently, her proper romance A Song for the Stars, was published. It is set in Hawaii and is based on Ilima’s fourth great-grandparents. The story is fascinating and not one you should miss as she explains the origins of her novel in part two of the podcast. Ilima makes the point that there are not enough stories highlighting the Polynesian culture. She hopes to change that.

You can find her at www.ilimatodd.com and can purchase her books on Amazon or in your favorite bookstore.
