Jeyamohan is a pre-eminent writer in modern Tamil literature and has authored more than two hundred books, spanning novels, short fiction, travelogues, literary criticism and essays on heritage and philosophy, amongst others.

Spanning more than 25,000 pages, it is perhaps the longest literary work in the world. Jeyamohan also wrote a sequence of 125 stories, one for each day of the pandemic-induced lockdowns in 2020. He has received the Akilan Memorial Prize, the Katha Award, the Sanskriti Samman and the Iyal Award. He has formed the Vishnupuram Literary Circle and recently launched the ‘Tamil Wiki’ encyclopaedia. Jeyamohan achieved acclaim for Ozhimuri, a Malayalam film adapted from his book Uravidangal. His credits also include writing for successful films like Naan Kadavul, Kadal, 2.0, Venthu Thaninthathu Kaadu, and Ponniyin Selvan.
