J.E. Taylor

Biography

J.E. Taylor is a USA Today bestselling author, a publisher, an editor, a manuscript formatter, a mother, a wife, a business analyst, and a Supernatural fangirl, not necessarily in that order. She first sat down to seriously write in February of 2007 after her daughter asked:

“Mom, if you could do anything, what would you do?”

From that moment on, she hasn’t looked back.

In addition to being co-owner of Novel Concept Publishing, Ms. Taylor also moonlights as a Senior Editor of Allegory E-zine, an online venue for Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror. She is also a co-host on the indie-author webcast, Spilling Ink.

She lives in Connecticut with her husband and two children and during the summer months enjoys her weekends on the shore in southern Maine.

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I lived in Novato, California until I was seven and then we moved across country to Vernon, Connecticut. Living on the east coast certainly influenced my writing in that a great deal of the settings are in places near and dear to me, like the lakes region of New Hampshire and of course, York Beach, Maine.
When did you first start writing?
I wrote my first story when I was in sixth grade and my father recently gave it back to me. I think I'll laminate it because it shows that I was even a bit twisted back then. I wrote on and off through high school and college. A great deal of which was poetry that I unfortunately lost due to a computer crash early in my marriage.

That was a sick feeling - years of work transcribed lost. And I didn't keep the paper back ups. I learned a valuable lesson about redundant back up then.

I put away the writing for almost twenty years until my daughter asked if I could do anything, what would it be.

That was in 2007 and I haven't looked back...
