Praise & Reviews

Melia’s imagination has produced a gloriously mythical yet credible world combined with a spellbinding and beguiling story, making Born of Empire a vivid and strikingly original first novel in this YA science fiction fantasy series.
The Book Directory

"The world-building is divine, and the story is an absolute page-turner."

 In this rough world of subterfuge, kidnap, political unrest, and strict hierarchies of power, Guy and Teodor both represent outsiders who are not treated the same as other boys. I

About Sally Ann Melia

All my life I have read and written Science Fiction and Fantasy. I am a massive fan of all things Star Wars, Star Trek and Lord of the Rings, but I can also name all the Stark & Lannister children in Game of Thrones and am addicted to The Expanse, Black Mirror, The Mandalorian, Doctor Who and anything by Andy Weir.

I also love all things SETI, the search for Extra Terrestrial Intelligence. In my day-job I am a digital marketing specialist who for the past 20 years has worked for tech and defense companies.

I won a prize in the 2018 Giant Leap SF competition celebrating the UK astronaut Tim Peake, and my work has been published by the British SF Association, Interzone and many smaller fanzines.
