      I’ve experienced the whole spectrum of the most amazing emotions and feelings while reading this story and immediately was captured by its true to life events. Pain and joy, jealousy and doubt, delight and disappointment, ups and downs ... All this can be combined into one thing - a beautiful love story.
      After all, it is love that harbors the wide variety of manifestations, most of which reveal what is best in us.
      This emotional story of the romantic relationship of Maja and Calle will draw you into the whirlpool of events and make you empathize with the heroes, rejoice and grieve with them.
      The Ballad of Calle & Maja can warm any heart and fill it with unique emotions that will overwhelm the reader with experiences. The language is image-bearing, rich with small detailed descriptions of places and events. This is a story of love – simple and complicated at the same time. Isn’t it what love is – the most simple, yet the most complicated feeling. Bright, imaginative characters keep you in constant suspense. To more clearly depict the images, the author tells the life stories of both heroes, describes their relationships with families and friends, their musical preferences and childhood hopes and fears.
      This exquisite story reminded me of weaving a carpet with the intricate ornament of human destinies and feelings. You can never guess what awaits you on the next page. The plot develops rapidly, but I still was not ready for such an unexpected ending!
      The fascinating narration as if embraces you with the feelings of the characters, and in the end, you already feel yourself a participant in the story.
      Lawrence G. Taylor shows us all what it means to love truly: to trust, to feel at ease, to worry and to care, never losing hope. If you want to submerge into the world of love, written with passion and deep understanding, with all its difficulties and challenges, then this story is definitely for you!

I was born in Guyana, moved to England in the early sixties. I worked and studied in London. Residing in Sweden since the beginning of the seventies. I retired a few years ago from a mental health occupation and from a private counseling practice.

The seventies, I began writing, wrote mostly short stories, a four-act closet drama, a few novellas, and an unfinished biographical novel, and had spent two years nurturing the ambition to become an author of some repute. But financially the going was tough, as well as the feeling of insecurity for the future. I worked as a hospital porter for some years. I received a BA (Eng. & Ed.). Unfortu.nately, my interest in writing faded until a couple of years ago.

In Feb (2016), I self-published my debut book a collection of two short stories and two novellas, Strangers In Another Country, available only as an e-book.

In December 2016, I self-published a novella The Eternal Struggle: An Amorous Story, in ebook format and paperback format.

Getting it Right, if Ever - a Romance Novella will be available 22nd Aug 2019
