British playwright and novelist Bernard Taylor surrounded himself with the literary arts. He studied at an art college in London and moved to New York City as a young man, where he made a living as an actor, writer, and illustrator. Some of his most famous novels, The Godsend (1976) and Sweetheart, Sweetheart (1977), were made into major feature films. Though he has written in a plethora of genres--from horror, romance, and suspense-- his most praised works are his crime nonfiction novels. Taylor, whose dyslexia remained undiagnosed until he was 38 years old, had always been one to think outside of the box, and this ability to view situations and people from unusual angles are reflected in the elaborate and deceiving plots of his true crime novels. His novel Perfect Murder won the Crime Writer’s Association Gold Dagger for Non-Fiction Award. When asked about how he maintained a career in writing while living with undiagnosed dyslexia, Taylor responded, “It takes me dozens of rewrites to get it grammatically correct. But the creative juices keep me going.”
