How it began…
I began writing fiction at a very young age, far away in Sri Lanka. My late father K.Navasothy was a published author of may books, regular article writer in national newspapers and other cultural forums. He was also a public speaker and organiser. So I guess all that runs in my blood (as well as in my sisters’ ).
My earlier works were just boyhood comic books, drawn in note books in school (I had a bunch of friends who all wrote comics this way. We used to compete with one another, and shared what we had written with each other). I have written about 28 comic books – in Tamil language (by the age of 14 yrs) but these are lost back in Sri Lanka. The 6 English Comic books I wrote do exist, but am not likely to show them 🙂 (4 about a space ship & crew…akin to Blakes7, and 2 about a Scientist and his Robot!)
Teen novels & Collections (1992-94)
My serious writing started with novels and short stories from around 1992, in London (Kitty Love, Degenerate Solutions, Heart-Deep). One of these has never been even printed from my old computer,. and quite possibly lost. Am still hoping to salvage it (old Lotus symphony software..back in 1994).
Gaian Times eMagazine – getting serious (2011 onwards)
In the past 3 years, I have been e-Publishing an online free eco-spiritual magazine called `Gaian Times’ (so far 10 issues).
Esoteric eBooks (2012 onwards)
In May 2012, an esoteric workbook “Eclipse Magic workbook” was published on my website, and in November the same book was published to Amazon Kindle. Later a companion book `Astrology for Eclipse Magicians’ was also published on Amazon Kindle, to help provide Star graphics, additional Lunar Occultation data and so on that could not be included in the original book.
In November 2012, the “Coven Guide: become an Initiated Witch” was published to Amazon Kindle. More have followed..
Here are some that have been published on Amazon Kindle. (check my author page www.amazon.com/author/mnavasothy)
There are a few more that are work in progress (covers designed; Contents planned & mapped, some even have a few chapters!). They are to be completed by this year. There are also a few Children’s books am working on – some picture books, some cartoon, other Teaching Guides..
Full details of the published books, and other books in progress can be seen at my professional website www.ManiNavasothy.com
