I am a Storyteller (About Eric Blue)


Eric Blue is a modern era storyteller who sees things differently than most writers do. He spots the “story behind the story” and his mind works on the “what could have been” scenario. He focuses on the mirror image to give the readers an in-depth look at how life could have been.

I am fascinating with stories-how stories change lives, how stories influence histor(ies) and universe(s), how stories have been recorded and told.

His work may be fiction, but it also could have been today’s headline news. Eric’s writing is built on a passion to boldly go where other writers seldom thing about going.

Kindly note that some of Eric’s work is on a free-to-the-public basis. Being a full-time businessman and family man, Eric is open to receiving ideas from the public that can bring to life in the form of a book. With his novels and short stories that have being available free of charge to the public, remuneration will not be available for ideas provided. The pleasure will be in seeing your idea being brought to life!

He is always on the lookout for cartoonists too, as drawing is a big part of the Eric Blue storytelling plan.

Some of My Works

Ch.23: Pieter Keeps his Secret (The Mandela Effect, V.1 Black and White) e.1

As he drives towards Pietermaritzburg, Pieter thinks of the history of the Natal capital, which is named after the Voortrekker leaders, Pieter Retief and Gert Maritz. Pieter has two big concerns in his mind. Firstly, he could not get hold of his mentor, Colonel Jaap Cornelius, on the office number. Had Pieter been sold out by the man who had cemented the Mandela idea in his head? Was he now the fall guy? Secondly, was a third party at work to action the Mandela assassination plan ahead of him. While Pieter was leaning towards the New South Africa idea, more than the killing of Mandela, he still did not like someone else grabbing headline news ahead of him. He found himself at a serious crossroads in his life, and his country.

Ch.37: Blocked and Frustrated (The Mandela Effect, V.1 Black and White) e.1

Once out of the trance, Lindiwe tells Pieter Erasmus about what she had seen in her visit to 1973. Pieter doesn’t know who this ‘Zuma’ is, but is disappointed that Lindiwe never got to see Mandela. Meanwhile, a warden reports to Vorster over the fact of having seen Pieter and Lindiwe on the island. Vorster issues a security alert with wardens on the march to find Pieter and the girl. The urgency among the wardens was as if a prisoner had escaped. Pieter and Lindiwe make a run for the nearest corridor to find some form of safety. The wardens are struggling to find the pair and the jetty and ferry are double-checked. Panic is setting in as Pieter and Lindiwe are nowhere to be found. Nobody wants to tell that to Vorster.

Ch.18: The Race for the Truth (The Mandela Effect, V.1 Black and White) e.1

Albertina Buthelezi takes Pieter and Lindiwe through the finer details of the explosion at the laboratory. The old lady was still a virgin at the time of her employment there and wasn’t aware that she had sex with the man in the bedroom at the ‘Looking Glass’ so she was stunned to find out a few weeks later that she was pregnant. When she returned to work at the laboratory, she noticed that some of the scientists were missing. She still wasn’t too sure what the scientists were working on or what caused the explosion. Nor did she know why the laboratory was so top-secret. Pieter had done some research back at the office and had a good idea of the ‘Looking Glass’ project, but did not share his views with the ladies.
