L.D. Taylor

lisataylorsm.jpgAfter graduating from Concordia University in Montreal, Canada with a BA in English Literature and History, LD Taylor began a career in marketing for the 3D graphics and animation software industry.

A few years before her family’s immigration to New Zealand in 2010, she decided to spearhead a family project that would combine one of her teenage sons’ interests (videogames) with one of her own (mystery novels).

In 2011 the resulting manuscript, Motive Games, won the Caleb Prize in the Young Adult category. The sequel to Motive GamesMotive Games: DDU will be release by Rhiza Press in 2014.

Today, Taylor and her family live like pioneers in New Zealand’s Northland, taunting their family back in Canada with photos of exotic locally grown fruits and snowless winters. 

L.D.'s books with Wombat | Rhiza include:
Motive Games
Motive Games: Death Down Under
