Using a pen name, Devin Taylor writes realistic Young Adult fiction. Devin is a writer and educator from the midwest and has been know to say with some frequency: "Literature reflects life, life reflects literature." Much of the literature being taught, however, doesn't reflect all KINDS of life. In particular, life beyond the norms. Witnessing a limited menu of quality material within the LGBT fiction genre has been Devin's impetus for creating fiction, and, in particular, gay/lesbian stories. "I hold near and dear that for every person there is the right book at the right time. Can't tell you how often I've witnessed the unique struggles of a gay student and wished I could direct her or him to a good novel or story. One that could provide support beyond my "Hey, been there, done that" talk. A story that could show: hey, you're not alone--there are many others in the same situation."
