Lesego Makhwenkwe might be only 19 years old, but he has already published his first book online.
Makhwenkwe, an LLB student at the University of South Africa (Unisa), recently published his first book on Amazon.
Speaking to Briefly.co.za, the young author revealed that his aim is to touch the lives and hearts of South Africans through his writing.
Makhwenkwe believes the book, which is titled The Dream, has the power to motivate the youth as well as to inspire parents to push their kids outside of their 'original lanes'.
On Amazon, the book is described as a roller coaster filled with "action, mystery and a twist of horror!"
The book is about a newly-graduated lawyer whose business is going 'just fine'. However, his life is turned upside down when he dreams about a mysterious man, dressed in a black coat and hat, killing him.
The story gets more bizarre when the dream killer turns up in real life. Not even the lawyer's gangster friend is able to help him escape the torturous killer.
Although the book has just been published, Makhwenkwe revealed he is already busy with a sequel to The Dream.
However, his passion for writing will not deter him from his studies:
"I don't plan to be a writer, my dream is to be an Advocate but I will also write books to entertain the minds and hearts of South Africa".
