An 11-year-old boy from Macassar in Cape Town, Amr Salie recently published his very first book titled Blameless.
The young Salie spoke to CapeTalk's Kieno Kammies about what motivated him to start writing a book.
He says at the age of eight he developed an interest in App development and coding, which he is still doing.
One day when I am older I would like to write many books and publish them and have my own mobile App development company.— Amr Salie, Author of Blameless
Salie says his mother encouraged him to write a book and if it wasn't for her he wouldn't have realised this talent.
