In the midst of Light and Darkness,
Please teach me:
To feed with Love,
To survive with Joy,
And to defend with Peace.
May I shelter in the Light,
And shine in the Darkness.
1) What is P.W.F.B.D. about?
It's about a book of riddles that support happiness -- from 7 days a week; 52 weeks a year. (To end the surprise factor, click me.)
2) When did you start and finish writing this joke book?
I started from 1 January and ended at 31 December 2017 within 365 days.
3) Who are your jokes for?
Originally they were for the Generation X. A year later, I received news that children as young as 10 years old enjoy the play of words written in this book. FEEDBACK: A little lady among the children said that the author is a genius.
4) Why is this joke book unique?
That's because it's a joke book built by writing one riddle a day for 365 days; this commitment followed a New Year's resolution of 2017.
5) Why did you accept the challenge to write one riddle a day for 365 days?
I accepted this because I wanted it. In the past, I picked up jokes from different sources. I felt it was about time to rely on my creative mind to write original riddles.
6) Did you build your joke book around a genre?
Yes I did.
7) How would you classify your pun genre?
I classify this as clean wit and humor. Or dad jokes for short.
8) Are the puns retold or originals?
The puns are original play of words.
9) What can you say if someone wrote a joke that is similar to yours?
I can say that someone and I must have channeled a similar source of inspiration. It would spoil my fun if I researched for processed jokes and claim them as my own.
10) Where do you get your pun ideas?
I take them from playing with words. I played what the word sounds like, or what other meanings this word has.
11) Who are your inspirations?
They are (but not limited to) funny authors (e.g. Andrew Matthews - Being Happy), funny speakers (e.g. Leo Buscaglia - Politics of Love), and funny cartoonists (e.g. Gary Larson - The Far Side).
12) What may we benefit from your book?
We may either eye-roll, smile, or crack up laughing. It's a happy, joyful, and fun book.
13) Where can we buy your book?
You may buy it at selected shops, such as brick & mortar stores and online stores. More details at the SHOP Page.

NOTE: Since life is dynamic, expect the author to change her answers in a more current interview. It takes a sadist to 1)compare the updated answers with these oldie written ones and 2)call her inconsistent. Haha... Dear sadist, please use your intelligence to create a better world instead of bringing down your selected victim. Thank you. Cheers :-)
