Guest Biography: 

R.L. Akers loves stories.  An international bestselling author, he loves hearing them, loves telling them, loves embellishing them, and loves forging them from raw materials.  He is convinced that every person who ever lived has an interesting story, and he’s only met one person in his life who came close to proving otherwise.

Holder of an undergraduate degree in computer science and a master’s degree in business administration, Akers has worked in software development as well as non-profit fundraising and publicity.  His love for children has led him in the past to be a foster parent and a coordinator of the K-5 ministry at his church, and he currently invests time each week in the lives of local high schoolers.  His interests include graphic design, orchestral movie soundtracks, and anything remotely creative.

Akers lives in West Virginia with his wife Sarah and the four children he loves most in this world.

Before the Roman Empire... Before Ancient Egypt... There was ATLANTIS.
