Review & Interview: Thanks to Mark Stevens

Thanks to Mark Stevens for his review of The Boy Detective & The Summer of ’74 in Colorado’s Four Corners Free Press—and for kindness and enthusiasm both for the book and for my writing in general! I particularly appreciated these lines: “Taylor writes like a kid who just discovered the mystery/suspense sandbox, quickly recognizes that most of the cool stuff has already been sculpted, and decides to simultaneously mimic and reimagine what’s already in place. The results are highly original. Taylor shifts tone, voice, and narrative style with ease.”

As a companion to the review, Mark interviewed me for his blog—and I appreciated both his thoughtful questions and his indulgence with my long answers to those questions too! You can find that interview here.

And do check out Mark’s work as well at his website—both a terrific novelist and a fine short story writer too.
