Interview with Taylor Evans

Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
The first book I ever read was The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan. That book series continues to inspire me to write.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
A tablet. The screen is much larger.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up on the rough side of town. I've been through a lot and seen things that made me want to forget. But that's what made me who I am. I am a talented writer with hope. And I'm waiting til the day I inspire others.
When did you first start writing?
I was about 14 when I started writing. I read my first chapter book and was hooked.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Being able to tell a story from words. I love the freedom of what I say and do. I love creating characters that people will admire and grow to love.
What do your fans mean to you?
Fans are everything, without the love and support I wouldn't have made this far. Thank you!
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
My family, The Crew, and my heroes. If it wasn't for them I'd never be who I am.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Watching TV, mostly Criminal Minds and Supernatural. I'm obsessed. And reading The Lightning Thief series.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes! Its called Possible. I was young and stupid and was into animals, especially dogs and cats. It was about talking dogs and how talking cats turned everyone into zombies. They tried to rule the world. HAHA
What is The Crew?
Where do I start?
Five hit men who desire to make the world a better place. Five men, all with different personalities. Five friends with a bond that could never break. The word 'Five' means a lot. The Crew is the best thing that happened to me. They changed my life. As they would anyone. Cole, Ken, Joey, Derek, and Sean. The Crew. The only Crew I know.
So what is The Crew you ask? The Crew is what it always is...
The Crew Is True.
How did you find out about me and my team?
Who is this?
Cole? Is that you?
