Sian Headshots

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. Sian’s book, Sylvana, the 

final book in her Butcher series, made the Amazon top 100 best sellers list in several categories across three countries. In her spare time, Sian is an avid Harry Potter fan, pop collector and Bingo addict. She resides in Johannesburg with her 2 best friends, their daughter, their 6 dogs and 3 cats.
