WHAT IS BAAKO?
BAAKO is the story of a young girl coming of age in a world full of unimaginable terrors. She must find the courage to set out on a journey full of peril, loss, and betrayal and learn to overcome it all.
The story is inspired heavily on the fact that I have a daughter of my own. To tell a story with a strong female lead without the "physical" attributes that are so commonly attributed to such a role is of huge importance to me.
This is a journey of uncertainty: of knowing what has to be done, getting out of your comfort zone, building up the courage to take that leap of faith, and hoping you land on your feet!
BAAKO is a fantasy tale at heart and a culmination of everything I've ever wanted to do in my own book. The story is a mix of multiple genres and a place for my imagination to run wild and free!
