MELBOURNE, FL ―Florida environmental writer Amy Adams announced today the release of her novel TAGGED set on Cape Cod and Florida. TAGGED dives deep into the captivating world of the ocean’s most fascinating predator, the great white shark.
TAGGED provides shark conservation information imbedded in an engaging story format about a family whose lives are affected by a shark incident that pits a shark scientist against enemies who do not understand the fish’s intrinsic value to the world’s ecosystem.
“As a writer, I have noticed there is very little reading available to the public to learn about the species other than news reports, an occasional slick magazine article or a graphic reality television show that doesn’t always relate the species’ best angle. Though there is a growing body of scientific research on the white shark, it is not in a form that the public would understand.
"I hope this book will help bridge that gap, providing shark conservation information in a story format to shark enthusiasts as well as an audience that may not have current interest in sharks,” says Adams who has a master’s degree in marine policy and is married to a fisheries biologist who studies and tags sharks.
TAGGED is appropriate for young adults as well as mature readers interested in shark conservation.
A portion of the profits from the book will be donated to the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy, a non-‐profit organization established to support white shark research and education programs to ensure that this important species thrives.
