My newest book is now available!
GIRL OF MINE includes a story about a soldier going off to war, therefore it seems fitting to release it on MEMORIAL DAY, in honor of our fallen soldiers.

To all of our military, thank you for your service.

The song that inspired me while writing GIRL OF MINE:
(Watch until the end. There's a surprise!)
A interesting tidbit about GIRL OF MINE:
My dad always worried about the cost of the electricity bill. If he walked past my bedroom and noticed that my light had been left on, he would turn it off and holler,
"That's okay, Taylor, I got your light."
It became a bit of a joke in our household. My siblings and I loved to try and catch my dad leaving on a light, just so we could say,
"That's okay, Dad, I got your light."
Now that I'm an adult with my own family, the term takes on new meaning.
The message behind it has worked its way into my new novel, Girl of Mine.
My father brought me into this world, he cared for me, and he taught me well. He gave me my "light," my life.
He nourished my "light" and helped me become the person I am today.
So, Dad, thanks for getting my light.
I'll always be grateful.
In honor of our men and women in uniform, I'll close this post with this song.
