Author Biography

I discovered my passion for writing during a one-year sabbatical I took in 2012. I got bored one day and decided to write something to pass the time. I was instantly hooked.

Most of my work spawns from my interest in the Philosophy of Religion, which I came across during the research for my first novel. I consider myself to be a social entrepreneur who strives to make a positive impact in people’s lives. I am a qualified accountant by profession and I completed my MBA with the Gordon Institute of Business Science in South Africa in 2014.

When I am not writing or working, you will most likely find me watching a movie, something I believe feeds my desire for storytelling. I also love playing chess and when all seems too much, resort to cooking to literally let off some steam.

Written in the epic fantasy genre, The Seven Demon Princes of Hell: Satan by Reuben B Mushaike takes readers to the beginning of time. The time when Anna, the wife of the god Joseph, gave birth to twins. Satan and Jehovah were both heirs to the throne of heaven. While Satan was more adventurous, Jehovah was more of an obedient son. Sensing an inherent evil inside Satan, Joseph did not wish to see him seated on the throne. His prejudice was not lost on Satan who knew that his dream to claim the throne for himself would only come true if he gained knowledge and power like no other. So, he sought the tutelage of Diablo, the only one who took a stand for Satan. And then, in his blind pursuit of power, he did something that filled even his hardened soul with heavy guilt. The repercussions of his heinous act ensured a lifetime of rivalry between the brothers.

As gripping as the plot is, the storytelling is exquisite. Reuben B Mushaike plays a symphony of words that give an almost tangible picture of the atmosphere, architecture, and emotions. The clever combination of simile and metaphor in the story delivers the spellbinding magic of poetry. In Satan, Reuben B Mushaike has presented a villain that the audience hates to love. His atrocious actions would have made it easier to despise him. However, his actions stemmed from his deep desire to lay claim to his birthright. He fought harder and nastier because he didn't want his father to just hand over the throne to Jehovah. The resulting wrestling of emotions not only intrigues readers but also injects a sense of injustice. The Seven Demon Princes of Hell by Reuben B Mushaike binds readers to its pages with engrossing twists, excellent prose, and a smooth pace. I would recommend this book to readers who enjoy a fantastical epic woven with supernatural elements.
