As a 3rd degree burn survivor, in addition to permanent scarring of my body it also created a lot of deep emotional scars; it forever changed my appearance and it sent me on a long lasting battlefield within myself and society. And this is where my story begins. My story begins because I have decided to publicly reveal true-self and share my journey in hopes to provide comfort and support to many of you who are dealing with physical and emotional scars. Regardless the size of the scar, emotional or physical, we are all very unique and it affects us differently. It can build us up or tear us down and prevent us from living the life we truly want to live. I hope my blog brings ease and motivation to your journey.
Though he loves covering the expeditions of others, Taylor Zajonc enjoys going on his own even more! This passion has translated into this blog, novels, non-fiction writing and speaking.
As a maritime historian, Explorers Club member, shipwreck expert and avid world traveler, Taylor Zajonc’s real-life adventures nearly exceed those of his fictional counterparts. His fascination with exploration began when he joined a Russian expedition to the deepest archaeological site on the planet, descending nearly three miles into the abyss of the Bermuda Triangle aboard a Soviet-era submersible.
Taylor’s debut novel, The Wrecking Crew is a thrilling adventure set in the world’s last frontier, a story of a deep-water salvage diver set free from a Moroccan prison and forced to lead a covert mission into pirate-infested Somali waters. When his expedition threatens to expose the true source of an oceanic plague, he must assemble an unproven crew of former enemies and fight for the fate of the entire region. This novel will be released by Blank Slate Press on February 23, 2016. (Pre-order now!)
