G.E. Taylor author of Desperate Decision answers five easy questions to help readers get to know her better.
I became hooked on reading romance novels during my teen years and my attempt at writing began in high school. All of my manuscripts were mailed under my bed. Eventually, I threw out most of them. That was painful especially since I’d hand written them first, then typed them on my old typewriter.
In college I majored in English but ended up with a Master in Social Work and a Master in Education.
Though I had these different career paths, I never gave up my passion for writing. Now I’m much more committed to it and writing full time. I’ve drawn on my years of practicing social work to give my work authenticity and realism.
I live in New Jersey with my family.
What's your favorite down-home family style meal?
Now this is difficult because I have two all time favorites. The first one is oxtail with broad beans, rice and peas and ginger beer. And the other is Jerk Chicken with rice and peas and ginger beer. Just thinking about them now is making my mouth water.
What is your go-to meal when you dine out?
Without a doubt seafood Alfredo. I love it!
Describe the perfect vacation.
If I had the financial pocket book to do this, the perfect vacation for me would be to spend at least six weeks away with my husband on the island of Saint Barths.
love the Caribbean waters, the lovely sandy beaches, the food and culture. I’d like to enjoy that.
What are your hobbies?
My favorite is reading. I’m absolutely lost if I don’t have a book to read. I like to bake cakes and decorate them. I’ve done some wedding and birthday cakes which turned out pretty well.
Cooking is right at the top of my list, so you’ll find me watching Master Chef and other cooking shows. When I attended college and was invited to a party I would run out get
some material and a pattern and sew my own dress. Crocheting—I’ve not done much lately but I do like to make various pieces.
When you read for pleasure, what kind of books do you choose?
Romance or Law. The romance book could be a historical or even contemporary one just as long as it holds my interest. I enjoy stories about the law, so I search for John Grisham’s books.

Allison North’s flight to freedom is dangerous and desperate. As she scrambles into the stranger’s car crying “drive,” she prays to God this is not her last day on earth. Usually not a gambler, this move is high-stake gambling. Bruised, battered, and with no money, she needs a place to hide and heal until she finds work as a pastry chef. When the stranger offers her shelter, she takes it even as fear rushes up her throat and threatens to choke her. Would she live to regret her decision?
Mason Franklin cannot believe his eyes but, with her urgent cry ringing in his ears, he presses the gas and the car leaps forward. What had possessed her to do such a dangerous act? He intends to find out. But no amount of probing loosened her tongue. Just when he decides to let her go, he accidently sees her bruised body. Angry that someone did that to her made him want to meet the coward. He offers her shelter. Under his roof, he discovers she is the pastry chef who could not only lift his business to the top, but who built up a need in him that only she can satisfy. The wild passion they share can only lead to one conclusion.
