Sean Taylor is an award-winning writer of stories. He grew up telling lies, and he got pretty good at it, so now he writes them into full-blown adventures for comic books, graphic novels, magazines, book anthologies and novels. He makes stuff up for money, and he writes it down for fun. He’s a lucky fellow that way. 

He’s best known for his work on the best-selling Gene Simmons Dominatrix comic book series from IDW Publishing and Simmons Comics Group. He has also written comics for TV properties such as the top-rated Oxygen Network series The Bad Girls Club. 

His other forays into fiction include such realms as steampunk, pulp, young adult, fantasy, super heroes, sci-fi, and even samurai frogs on horseback (seriously, don’t laugh), and he has appeared in short story collections alongside such writing heroes as Joe Lansdale and Nancy Collins. However, his favorite contribution to the world will be as the writer/editor who invented the genre and coined the term "Hookerpunk." For more information (and mug shots) visit www.taylorverse.com.

wedding day blissHe's also the former editor-in-chief of Shooting Star Comics, where he edited the critically acclaimed Children of the Grave comics series and edited and contributed to the fan favorite Shooting Star Comics Anthology, and was creator and author of the Fishnet Angel: Jane Doe comic book miniseries.

As if he weren't already overworked and exhausted, he's also written and edited for the role-playing game industry as well, having contributed to the DCU Role Playing Game published by West End Games (Gotham City Sourcebook, Titans Sourcebook, and Green Lantern Sourcebook) and having edited the Cyber Age Adventures Role Playing Game.

He's the former editor for the Baptist Men Edition of On Mission magazine and the former associate editor of On Mission magazine, and during his tenure on the magazine's staff, it won an EPA Higher Goals award (a religious publishing version of a Folio, basically). He has won several awards for his periodical work, and has contributed articles and book and music reviews to such national periodical publications as Inside the Lines, Home Life, Church Administration, CCM, CBA Marketplace (formerly Bookstore Journal), and others.

He currently lives in the Atlanta area with his extraordinarily beautiful wife (who puts up with his posing with booth babes and only rolls her eyes at him) and his three kids, two dogs, three cats, and a growing ego he keeps in his closet.

Dislikes: religious bullying, inability to debate without fighting, talking more than a few minutes having to talk about about ADD or OCD, being away from the computer for too long, close-mindedness, people too much like myself, prudishness, excessive trashiness in clothes, feeling the aches of getting older, onions, bananas, coconut, the redneck mentality, disrespect, contemporary romantic comedies, sports-themed films.

Family His family includes his extraordinarily beautiful wife, Lisa; his readaholic daughter, Charis Alexandra; his manufacturing-oriented son, Evan Christopher; and his youngest little protege, the pirate-obsessed Jack Emerson. Somehow, in his and Lisa's  too-small house, they also make room for four cats: Merlinus Ambrosius (Merlin), Calypso Star (Calypso), Argyle and Tohru, a dog, Cassidy, and some fish.

And did I forget to mention he was a pretentious snot who writes about himself in the third person?

Personal Quote: Be excellent to each other, and party on, dudes! (Okay, so it's not mine, but Bill and Ted did make quite a point, didn't they?)
