Not only is Kobe Bryant legendary in the basketball court, he’s also looking to make his name known in the field of authors. Having recently welcomed his fourth daughter into the world, Bryant has also been working on “The Mamba Sports Academy,” a body care company called “Art of Sport,” as well as creating a series of Young Adult novels. Two of the follow up books in the series will be released this Fall, as it was announced late last week.
According to People, the first book, “Legacy and The Queen,” will be based around an “underdog female tennis prodigy” who uses her skills to save her magical kingdom of Nova. The story was written by Annie Matthew, however, the concept was created by the Lakers legend. The second novel is titled, “Epoca: The Tree of Ecrof,” and it is described as “a tale of two children from opposite sides of the tracks” who create an “unexpected bond” to battle evil.
The first book is due on September 3rd, while the second one is set to come out on November 12th.
