My name is Gregg Taylor, and I write things.
I’ve written adventure novels, children’s books, mysteries, comic books and a frankly absurd number of full-cast radio drama programs. In fact, the only thing I don’t generally like to write about is myself. If I was interesting enough to write about, I wouldn’t have to invent elaborate lies about masked heroes, girl detectives or dystopian near-futures. I probably would anyway though; it’s a lot of fun.
I guess I’ve always been a storyteller. I spent an extended second childhood living the life of a stage actor and the assortment of odd jobs that come with it. I started writing in an effort to keep myself and my friends hip-deep in words to say, and eventually the writing became more important than the saying. So I wrote myself a circus, ran away with it, and I haven’t been seen since.
Years ago, a comic artist named Lance Sawyer drew this picture of me, which is meant to be me dressed as the Red Panda, one of the characters I created. In my head, this is what I actually look like, and that is much more important than the truth, unless you are trying to meet me at the airport.
In case you are interested in what I actually look and sound like, I’ve included this little video from when one of my books was covered on the SPACE channel. I might actually be this enthusiastic all of the time, which must be exhausting for my family and friends.

Most of the episodes are full-cast audio, in the style of the Golden Age of Radio, though each series has inspired multiple novels, featured here on …
What’s new? This is! After many years of being spread around the internet in sixteen different places before breakfast, I’ve finally gone and brought all things Gregg Taylor under one roof. Terrifying, isn’t it? If you’re used to finding me elsewhere, don’t worry, I’m not closing up any shops, just spinning one more plate! I’ve …
I write for different audiences at different times, and sometimes people find that confusing. So on this webpage, I have things neatly divided into books For Kids, For Everybody and For Grown-Ups. I hope this makes things easier for those of you with questions about reading levels or appropriate content. The truth is, if you like anything you find here, you’ll probably like all of it (or at least that’s what I hope), but these categories should help to steer you in the direction that is best for you.
