“I was driving home from work when inspiration struck, and a storyline started unravelling in my head. For a few days it was all I could think about and eventually I realised that the only way to get it out of my head, was to put it all down on paper. I started writing, and that was that.”
On Wednesday 30 July on A Feast of Tales you can read the review of Melissa’s book, The Legacy Trilogy.
Wife and mother of three, Melissa Delport is the author of The Legacy Trilogy and the stand-alone self-published e.books Rainfall and The Traveler.
She graduated from the University of South Africa with a Bachelor’s Degree in English in 2000
At the age of twenty-four Melissa started a logistics company (Transmax) from the spare room of her flat and built it up to two fully operational depots in Durban and Johannesburg. Now, 10 years later, she has sold her business in order to write full time.
Melissa lives with her husband and three children in Hillcrest, KwaZulu-Natal.
The Legacy (book 1 of The Legacy Trilogy) and The Legion (book 2) are now available at all good bookstores and the final book, The Legend, will be released early 2015.
An avid reader herself, Melissa finally decided to stop “watching from the sidelines” and to do what is her passion.
