Hailing from Johannesburg, Southern Africa, Sian B. Claven has enjoyed stories for all her life, whether she was reading them or making them.

She has written for as long as she can remember, but Ensnared is the first book she decided to publish. Moving towards writing more for a horror genre, when Sian isn’t thinking of ways to terrify people, she enjoys writing science fiction stories, poetry and rather long and gushy birthday wishes.

When she isn’t working on her writing you can find her knitting, scrap booking, reading, or playing Xbox. Sian also reviews for The Blithering Bibliomaniacs and clearly doesn’t know what the words rest and relaxation mean, at least not in the traditional sense.

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)

Sian B. Claven shared a quote
One of the most important things I have read today
On Writing by Stephen King
“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”

“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.”
Sian B. Claven

“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.”
