Esjay C. Moore was born in Durban on the east coast of South Africa, where she still currently resides. South Africa is a country with a rich heritage and diverse cultural heritage which makes for interesting content.
Having completed a dissertation for a Masters in Law, Moore’s fingers itched to continue typing. Finally, she gave up the nagging urge and began putting ideas to ‘paper’ which became “The Blessing of Queen”. The socio-political issues in South Africa tend to have deeper impacts on the women in society, and Esjay felt this provided a niche to address these circumstances through fiction writing.
The protagonist in her stories is invariably a young woman who through circumstance finds herself living an undesirable life. The truth of the story is women are strong, and it is only through determination that they can rise to achieve their dreams. Of course, classified as a Contemporary Romance, each story includes a tasteful morsel of lust and a promise of love.
Moore’s writing style is both descriptive and fluid, sending you on a roller-coaster of heartfelt emotions, yet easy-to-read novellas. Chapters are laced with cheeky fantasy, stained by the influence of a sordid society and hemmed with the flirtatious promise of romance.
Moore’s stories have a distinctly South African flair giving an air of authenticity. Written for mature young adults, the plot would appeal to all that may identify with the troubled protagonist.
