Born and reared in Athens, GA as a country girl, which gave me great training for writing historical romances. I am married to my best friend of 50 years, have 2 married daughters, and 4 grandchildren. We do a lot of RVing, biking, hiking, fishing, and all sorts of outdoor fun. I graduated from Athens High School and attended Augusta College. I used to be an orthodontic nurse and medical research technologist IV, which gave me many things to use in lots of my books. I write in various genres and subgenres, even horror for my "dark side" and a children's book. I have 55 books/ebooks, 5 novellas, and 4 collections. I've made the NYTimes bestseller list 9 times and the PW Million Copy bestseller list 7 times.

Fourth & One
by Janelle Taylor
Super Bowl winning quarterback, Drew Hawkins, is in the right and wrong frame of mind to meet a woman who will challenge all he knows and all he holds dear.
A woman who causes him to break all of his rules.
by Janelle Taylor
Gritty. Dark. Spell-Binding. Sinister. Intense. Not for the faint of heart. Necessary Evil is a page turner that will be glued to your hands and will make your heart pound- and compel you to check the locks on your doors and windows. When Justice is blind and helpless, a merciless and cunning vigilante steps in and becomes a Necessary Evil, one willing to go to any lengths to punish the guilty.
