12-year-old pens short story collection, chats about it on ‘Expresso’
“Fresh. Insightful. Promising narratives from a 12-year-old, written during a time of great upheaval. Looking out for your next book Aryan. Keep going while encouraging other young voices.” - Devi Sankaree Govender (The Devi Show, eTV)
Twelve-year-old Joburger Aryan Naidu's debut short story collection, I Promise Not To Bore You, consists of 10 tales inspired by master story-teller Roald Dahl, but with a modern twist.
These tales will leave the reader in awe and wonder at his imagination and talent for writing and storytelling.
The fun-to-read stories beautifully weave themes together using different genres such as comedy, tragedy and nail-biting thrillers. Children and teens will find it an entertaining and easy read.
In addition, the author has beautifully illustrated the fictional tales and captured beautiful pictures for the non-fictional narratives.
The e-book is available on Amazon and hard copies will be in book stores at the end of February 2022.
Here Naidu discusses his debut, crazy imagination, and lockdown on Expresso:
