Roland P. Taylor, a husband, father, and educational and finance professional, has completed his new book “The Hip Hop Chess Master”: the engaging story of Vaughn, a popular, musically inclined middle school boy who harbors a secret passion for the game of chess. “The Hip Hop Chess Master” demonstrates that it is not only possible but wonderful to enjoy a variety of different pursuits, hobbies, and interests.

“My intention in writing “The Hip-Hop Chess Master” is to show children and people of all ages and ethnicities that following your passion(s) does not mean that you must abandon other areas of interest or talents you may possess or conform to the perceptions of others. It is entirely plausible for these talents/gifts/passions to happily coexist, thrive, and flourish together. This story is as much for the “nerd” chess player, band member, and school safety officer as it is for the “cool” kids and jocks. And in many cases, they are both! Please enjoy this book with an open mind and an open heart. Encourage everyone you encounter or have the opportunity to influence to be the best and to always, above anything else, be true to who they are.” –Roland P. Taylor

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Roland P. Taylor’s inspiring tale encourages children to pursue their passions, thereby developing into well-rounded young adults.

Readers who wish to experience this motivational work can purchase “The Hip Hop Chess Master” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
