Taylor is deeply committed to eating, reading, and writing.

Growing up in Portland, Taylor spent a lot of time digging around in the woods and daydreaming with legos. After going back east for college, Taylor returned to Portland with dreams of saving the world. After being kicked in the shins by reality for a number of years, Taylor got into technology, data organization, and helping people manage their knowledge. This was great fun, but the stories kept bubbling out.

Taylor has no pets due to allergies, but has a dream of guinea pigs. Taylor has no tattoos due to anxiety. Taylor does have an excellent appetite, so the anxiety isn't too bad.

Hi Connie!

I hope you are enjoying "Mistakes Were Made." My second book, "Best Laid Plans" is also available, and explores the lives of Sam (Jules' physical therapist in Mistakes Were Made) and her boyfriend Wil.

Right now, I'm working on edits for my third book, "Good Fortune," which is the continuation of Sam and Wil's adventures in life. They aren't quite done with each other yet. I'm aiming for a November release, and so far everything is looking good for that timeline.

Thanks for your question!

This is a fun and silly book, but also there are also moments of connection and sadness. I enjoyed the hopping about the universe, possible directions for technology, and most of all Asimov's sense of humor. Perfect for introducing younger readers to ...more

I really enjoyed this book: interesting and gripping historical story with explicit sex. I felt smarter at the end of it, rather than gross like some of the more exploitative books w/ sex I've read. The book actually follows a pretty Shakespearean ge ...more
