About Brian W Taylor
Brian W. Taylor is a former soldier turned genre fiction author with a soft spot for the horror genre, black Labs, and soul patches. He grew up in Rochester, New York watching movies like The Evil Dead with his grandmother before Cancer took her, which naturally led him to seek out horror in literature. It was then that he stumbled upon Dean Koontz, and never looked back. While horror is his first love, Sci-Fi/Fantasy is a close second. Authors like Margaret Weis, Tim Lebbon, and Will McIntosh line his shelves. Oh, and never ask him to touch an Ouija board, because he won’t. Ever.
He spent six years in the US Air Force as an aircraft fuel systems specialist. His time in the military hammered home a commitment to excellence as well as instilling a “can do” attitude. Brian still holds on to many of the core values he learned while serving.
When he was younger, Brian believes he saw the ghost of his great-aunt. He found out the next day she had passed the night before. He’s been a believer ever since. In his opinion, horror should be intelligent, play off reader’s fear of the unknown, and also be based around some kind of truth. He tries to bring those same characteristics to his stories and can’t imagine a life without monsters and the people who battle them.
He’s currently hard at work on his next book.
