It's not something I seek. I read Poe and Milton, more as study. Ovid influenced me deeply. I remembering reading his writing, which was written two thousand years ago, and thinking, "people act the exact same today." He reached so high and was cast so low. I still feel tremendous sympathy for him.
For authors, favorites and most influential are the same. Jack London shaped my life philosophy of wanting to live free (Call of the Wild) and be "manly" (from Sea Wolf). Dickens was the first to really blow me away with story originality, which is still my greatest desire when reading.
I've read every book by Koontz, Bear, King, Grisham, Coben, Connelly, Sheldon. I'd say, sticking in the vein of high-concept novels, Crichton is my favorite. Timeline, Prey, Congo. Each one of those expanded my concept of what is possible at different times in my life.(less)

Virtual Heaven by Taylor Kole
"An intriguing story about how virtual vacation choices lead to the choice of suicide while immersed. A kind of afterlife, but with consequences. Soon countries are threatening violence when religious beliefs are ignored, and civilisation as we kno..." Read more of this review »

I found Dune entertaining from start to finish. The world of Arrakis was enthralling. Water as the most expensive commodity lends a primordial urgency, even a fright. (Let's hope we don't experience that!) Dune inserted lines to make you think about ...more
Live Like a God by Taylor Kole

"Josh Ridley is caught up in the normal day-to-day motions without actually living and is transformed into the person he always knew he could be. The scenes were well detailed, some were gruesome and the novel was action packed. This is a one of a..." Read more of this review »

Taylor Kole added a status update: Hello everyone. Thank you for supporting my first novel, Virtual Heaven. I learned so much from that process. That growth helped my recently released novel, Live Like a God, debut with more polish.
To help spur awareness, I am giving out 5 print copies in exchange for an honest review. If you live in the US and are ready for another book, you can reply here or send me an email taylor@taylorkole.com
