I remember when I first came up with the idea for The Mellark Legacy, and what truly inspired me to write the story was creating their family tree and thinking of all these mini background stories that made each of the members.
However, not just because of this reason I will create a family tree for the Mellarks of Riverview. This family is a big part of Annabelle’s story and they deserve to have their own family tree. Meanwhile I’m going to get inspired with all their little stories and perhaps gain the strength to finish this story of Annabelle and Aaron and how their names both start with an A and it was not premeditated. Really, it wasn’t.
