We need to find a way to explain it's not the abstract concept of nature we're trying to save. It's our very existence. We need those trees, we need that water to survive.

BOOKS by Kate Taylor


cover of Kate Taylor's dystopian fiction novel WHEN THE LAST TREE DIES The first novel in a stand-alone series, WHEN THE LAST TREE DIES, takes place in the immediate aftermath of The Destruction, a coordinated attack by doomsday cultists on the urban wasteland of Mercanto Valley.

The traumatized survivors escape deep into the last remaining wilderness, where the centuries-old Monastery Of The Trees, an ancient order of Druids, comes to their aid.

As they begin the slow process of recovery, the survivors must get along not only with each other, but with long-established communities in the hills. They must also deal with remnants of the cult that brought about The Destruction, and who now seek to gain power over all of them.

"Each tree shapes a piece of us. It holds us forever, like a shared breath. We are the forest. We are everyone who ever shared its breath. If the forest dies, the trees die. Then we die."     WHEN THE LAST TREE DIES

cover of Kate Taylor's dystopian fiction novel WHEN THE LAST RIVER DIES The second novel in a stand-alone series, WHEN THE LAST RIVER DIES, takes place in the years afterThe Destruction.

The survivors learn they are not alone when an intriguing traveler comes through a secret tunnel carved into the steep Capucin mountains. His presence both intrigues and disturbs them. They are reminded of what they lost, and yet they need his message of love, his lessons on how to use music to heal their wounded souls.

With his help, and with that of the monks from the Monastery of The Trees, the survivors start to reclaim their humanity. They begin to recognize the importance of their connection to nature, and they start to understand how their neglect and abuse contributed to the planet's destruction. They begin to take the first steps toward allowing themselves to love once more.

"RiverHome believes our piece of the universe is composed of multiple vibrations. It only makes sense then that music is the purest form of communication. It is a language with many purposes. In the right hands, it can do good. In the wrong hands, great evil."     WHEN THE LAST RIVER DIES

Poetry by Kate Taylor


cover of Kate Taylor's book of poetry IMAGINARY LOVERS Poems about relationships, passionate encounters, moments of desire, foolish choices, wise interludes, the pain of loss, the healing balm of remembrance, and the enduring power of love.

More than anything these poems teach us that love writes its own story, and memory is a fragile butterfly trapped in the wistfulness of time.

and showed me it was all one line
all one journey."
