Taylor Dunn is the pen name of an American born author raised in the charming and underrated city of Minneapolis, Minnesota. There, a poor white kid growing up in a poor black world, he learned many of life’s lessons the hard way. Drawing on those experiences has led to the creation of unusual characters with, demented and deranged as they may be, a distinct voice.
Escaping the poverty of the North Side, he attended Augsburg College and later Saint Cloud State University where he studied history, with a particular interest in Eastern Europe and Asia, discovering how poor people of other cultures were slowly crushed by structural inequality and oppression. Not that we know anything about that in the United States.
Before publishing his first novel Taylor worked as a yard-dog for a company known by its employees as the dog-nut. He moved on to stints as a courier, truck driver, bartender, a teacher of little kids, and later a teacher of bigger little kids. When not being tormented by the scheming intrigues of demons, Taylor enjoys traveling, mountaineering, and the unpredictability of people.
“I don’t care if you are good or bad; just be interesting.”
