A LITTLE BIT ABOUT R Taylor Ward
R Taylor Ward lives in Brisbane, Australia with her partner and two daughters. She has worked in nursing and law enforcement and has had a life-long love affair with the written word.
‘Ak-cra’, her inspirational debut novel, is the first in the series of adventures featuring Cerr and Sena and their quest to stop global warming and save their ocean home.
From the author:
’Literature with substance’.
It was that one prevailing thought that pushed its way into my consciousness one evening as I was reading a children’s story book to my two young daughters. What, I wondered, would I be reading to them, or indeed they themselves be reading, when they were teenagers and young adults?
It was in that moment that Ak-cra was born.
‘Literature with substance’ – a story of mystery, magic and adventure; with twists and turns, heroes and villains – and global warming, arguably the most challenging social and ethical dilemma facing humanity in the 21st century- at its heart.
Although a work of fiction, many key concepts in Ak-cra are grounded in reality, in a world where entire species are lost forever, and others cling perilously on the last rung of the ladder, before slipping from endangered to extinct. To be lost forever to a world that is as much theirs as it is ours.
From thought springs desire and I hope a quest for knowledge and a determination to find answers and solutions.
