Hello, readers! My name is Taylor. I'm female, American, a Christian, and a college student majoring in International & Cultural Studies with a minor in Writing.
I love to write! I don't remember exactly when I first figured that out, but it was somewhere around age 6 or 7. My writing at that age was about typical girly things like adventures with my best friend, horses, princesses, and other "young-girl-related" things. Since I spent a significant amount of my childhood in and out of hospitals, a lot of my stories also involved people going to the hospital and having surgery for various illnesses and injuries!
I've been writing ever since, everything from 500-word short stories to novel-length projects. These days, my writing has matured and broadened a bit. :-) The majority of what I write now is Christian fiction and political thrillers, which give me a chance to incorporate my cultural, language, medical, and criminology/law enforcement/military knowledge into the stories!
When I'm not seated in front of the computer working out the details of another story plot, I enjoy reading (I'm a "speed reader" who devours books!), camping, hiking, horseback riding, pistol target shooting (thanks to my former-police-officer father teaching me to shoot), spending time with friends and family, and traveling. I've been to 19 states and 5 countries.
My favorite TV shows are 24, Prison Break (love the political-thriller and criminology aspects of those), Glee (great music), Extreme Makeover: Home Edition (it's always good to help those in need), and The Amazing Race (traveling around the globe without leaving my living room!).
Thanks for taking the time to check out my Author profile and my work. Hope you like what you see!

- This Time You Lose
on Dec. 29, 2011
The premise of this book sounded intriguing, and it lived up to my expectations! I'm so glad that I decided to give this book a chance - it's EXCELLENT! "This Time You Lose" grabbed my attention from the very first page, and I read it in one sitting! (Went to bed, and was up reading under the blankets until the early hours of the morning!)
Very well-written book, a fast-paced and suspenseful read that kept me on the edge of my seat. Found myself actually saying "OH CRAP!" out loud at a few points.
The writing is superb, characters are believable and likable (hateable in the case of the hostiles!), and descriptions are vivid and visible - I felt as though I was right there alongside the characters.
There is foul language (mainly from the kidnappers) and some violence, but it is tastefully handled and nothing is overly graphic.
If you enjoy thrilling, suspenseful stories, definitely give this one a chance. You won't be disappointed.
