Drew Taylor lives and works in Fincastle, VA. He hopes and practices for one day becoming a published author. Still in school, he finds little time to spend with his dog and other passions: running, swimming, and sketching. He makes sure to find sufficient time to rage about his English teacher, then later finds solace in his calculator and a mathbook. His grandmother, Lelia Taylor, is among the few who encourage his zeal for writing. And his lovely Clara—a gourgeous brunette with sugar brown eyes, black speckles, and an enthusiastic voice—is all that keeps him mildly insane.
