I’ve never met him in person, but through his texting he’s very positive and engaging.
“I don’t really engage much in calling, but if you drop me a text I’ll definitely respond, ‘he once said over a voice note; one of the few times you’ll hear his voice.
23-year-old Lungelo B. Mokoena from Secunda, Mpumalanga is a different kind of writer. He is more than just a writer of words, he is an artist of literature. When you read his words, it is nearly impossible not to be whiffed by his complex characters; extended metaphors; colorful story-telling; all dancing in the theatre – that his imagination.
“I’m a child of the classics,” he tells. “We live in an information age and it is now up-to writers to make sure that information remains as entertaining as it is informative.”
We talk about the prologue for his upcoming book titled DRENCHED!
“I can’t wait to release it! It’s made my writing a tad bit more flexible.”
In the prologue, which is available for download on this page, Mokoena tells the story of a Jane Doe later identified under the pseudonym of Paz who is very much lively and strong-witted. This woman is found in an ally in Goa, India by a doctor and his colleague. She is kept under rather unsettling conditions in a very dodgy place. With such a peculiar and mind-blowing prologue, we can only speculate as to what this new breed of writer will set-up and deliver in this upcoming project. I promise you that as the reader, you’ll feel a part of his creative fun and voyage on a heavenly adventure.
To the sky and above! Vocare ad Regnum!
