Born in South Africa, in the heart of Johannesburg, Sian Claven grew up with a vivid imagination. When she wasn't immersing herself in books, she was actively creating her own stories.

At 29 years old, left to her own devices after her sister immigrated, Sian, wrote her first horror book Ensnared and dared to publish it under the guidance of indie authors Toni Cox and Ashleigh Giannaccaro.

Now she has released more than ten books including a thriller and sci-fi fantasy.

In 2019, Sian took up the challenge of publishing 11 books in 11 months.

Sian came second place in the First Annual Indie Awards for Favourite African Author.

It's a great resource for information - especially the weekly Q&A's that they host where you can question other authors and get their take on things. Aside from that I can only quote one of my favourite South African authors - Never edit while writing your first draft. All first drafts are rubbish. Just write. Also, reviews are for readers, not for writers. You have no business with them. (less)

"I have been devouring my collection of Claven's books and this one was next on the list. The cover, as usual with her books, is stunning and scary. I couldn't wait to dive into the story.

The book was well written and was a first for me with this genre but the genre just doesn't speak to me.

The author clearly has a lot of talent in writing and for that reason I give her four stars. I imagine that people who enjoy this genre will

Sian Claven is 11% done with Lethal: So far it’s okay. I’m struggling with the lack of setting but the story is good.

“It didn’t look like a solid hand; it looked like paper, almost transparent in the light. Just as suddenly the hand was pulled back and the window went black.”

“I can’t!” Maggie was now standing on the wall. “Past the boundary wall is a bad place. I’m not allowed in the bad place.”
Sian B. Claven, Ensnared

“Amari swung around in her seat to look back and there was indeed a small girl sitting on the boundary wall. She didn’t seem to be looking at the car that had just passed but up ahead. Amari turned around to see what she was looking at and she saw it, up ahead, the
farm house that she could only assume was their new home.”
Sian B. Claven, Ensnared

“It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all - in which case, you fail by default.”

“I think I was forty before I realized that almost every writer of fiction and poetry who has ever published a line has been accused by someone of wasting his or her God-given talent. If you write (or paint or dance or sculpt or sing, I suppose), someone will try to make you feel lousy about it, that’s all”
