About the Author

Melanie-Sparks-Author-Peace-In-The-StormMelanie Sparks grew up in a household that nurtured a belief in spirit and was always fascinated with anything of a spiritual nature. She meditates daily and is an avid reader of
many subjects, but is particularly interested in spiritual books. From an early age, she enjoyed writing and, before the age of ten, won a creative writing competition.

In January 2010, Melanie’s friend, Sue, passed away after a long battle with cancer. Sue left behind her soul mate, Greg, and nine-year-old daughter, Emma. Melanie wanted to give Emma a book that explained what happens when you die, from a spiritual perspective, but couldn’t find what she was looking for. When Melanie’s mother suggested that she write the book herself, she didn’t take it seriously until she woke up in the middle of the night, with ideas for the book flooding to her. And so the basis of this book was formed.

Melanie then requested her second cousin, Taryn Ryan, to provide illustrations for the book. Taryn did this, using pastels, at the age of 14.

Melanie is a full time consultant and mother of two children. She holds a Diploma in Financial Planning and has written many informational and instructional manuals for financial planners, whereby she utilises her gift in translating complex financial planning terms into simple language.

She is passionate about helping people and believes that this is her life’s purpose. She is now in the process of writing further books to follow this one.
