A PASSION for the scary side of life stemming from R.L. Stein’s famousGoosebumps series, paved the way for Pietermaritzburg’s very own Kaveel Lilmohun’s quest to bring his imagination to life through book writing.

Having begun writing his own material since his days of speech and drama, where he would create his own plays instead of use one that was already in existence, Lilmohun has now written six books and will be finished his seventh by the end of the year.

Set in a smallish town much like Pietermaritzburg, Sinister Spells follows the life of Sirara who is dealing with the death of her boyfriend and a magical book that can only be used for evil.

The book is the first in a series of books written by Lilmohun and is his first book to be published under Lotus Publishers from Durban.

“It was not easy to find a publisher but by chance I met the publisher at a flea market in Chatsworth while looking for clothing to celebrate Diwali,” said Lilmohun.

A big fan of the horror and suspense genre, Lilmohun said that his book ends somewhat tragically in order to provide a cliff hanger to give rise to a possible part two.

“I always knew what I liked but I never thought that I could make a career out of this at school. Now I have a book that is published and am writing my seventh book,” said Lilmohun. Lilmohun hopes to release his book sometime in April and those looking to get their hands on a copy can contact him and be first in line at 083 629 5377 or 082 372 8905.
