A Few Fun Facts About The Legacy

The Legacy by Melissa Delport

Ten fun facts about Book 1 of The Legacy Trilogy you might not have known:

1. The book was intended to be a stand-alone novel, not a trilogy. The war was to end with the fall of Eric Dane. As the story progressed, I realized that I wasn’t done yet, so The Legion and The Legend were born.

2. Kwan’s wife, Nina, was initially named Elizabeth. I changed her name to suit her character when she went from being simply ‘dead ex-wife’ to ‘super-bitch’.

3. Morgan Kelly was originally older and intended to be Kwan’s love interest.

4. Aidan Moore did not exist in the initial story plot. *gasp* About a month after I started writing the book, I went back and wrote him in.

5. I used my daughter’s name in the book – but only once. I have done this with all 3 of my children’s names – they are mentioned only once in: The Legacy, Rainfall and The Legion.

6. The character of Jonathan is based on my stepfather who has the same name.

7. Rebecca’s friend Jenna Larsen looks just like my friend Jenna, but her surname was taken from a woman I used to do business with.

8. Kwan Lee is the only character I struggle to visualize in my head

9. At the advice of a friend, I seriously considered removing the scene where Reed and Rebecca discuss the stars, but in the end I opted to keep it in.

10. Initially the 3 Gifts were to be: Speed, Strength, and Intelligence. Healing worked better for the story, so Intelligence was scrapped and instead, I introduced characters who were naturally exceptionally smart to fill this gap.
