Regan Taylor is joining me today

Today I’ve invited Regan Taylor to join me and talk about her latest release, Her Eyes from the Awe-struck imprint  Mundania Press. 

Regan, thank you so much for joining us today.  When I first took a look at your book, Her Eyes the cover really captivated me. Her reflection looked so haunted that I literally had to read what the book was about. I must say the blurb didn’t disappoint. It’s no wonder it was voted 2008 Romantic Times Reviewers' Choice Nominee for Best Paranormal from a Small Press. 

Thank you for having me! It’s a pleasure to chat with you.

How did you come up with the premise for your stories?

Mostly they come from life, day to day events.  Her Eyes, had a slightly different genesis. I’ve always been interested in soul mates, reincarnation and past lives. I’m also a firm believer in organ donation. In Her Eyes, those driving interests came together after hearing about the first face transplant that was done in France several years ago. There were so many possibilities I had to write a story.

Once you sit down to write, do you find your stories write themselves? Or do you outline everything ahead of time so you know exactly what comes next?

Pretty much they write themselves. Well, sort of. I tend to dream each new scene and write them down in the morning when I wake up. I believe the stats that we use 10% of our mind – in waking life. I believe we tap into that other 90%, to some degree, in our dreams. If we pay attention, the creative aspects of that part of our mind come out in our dreams and that’s where my stories come from. 

In your book, Her Eyes you named Frank’s dog, Win. It’s an unusual name, one you wouldn’t expect for a dog or even a person. LOL. I was wondering how you come up with names for your characters.

Win actually came from my friend, Jennifer Cloud. But my characters seem to name themselves. Something just resonates for a particular name. I have, in the past, done an impromptu contest for a character’s name, but mostly it just seems to fit.

In the very first chapter of Her Eyes you throw the reader into the emotions Catherine is feeling. Is this typical of all your books? Do you always grab the reader within the first few sentences?

I try. I need to be grabbed in the first few sentences of any book I read so I try to deliver the same.

Do you only write paranormal romance?

No, I also have a historical western series with Awe-struck, my Bride Series and a romantic suspense one with Siren-Bookstrand.

Is there other genre’s of writing you haven’t delved into, but are dying to sink your teeth into?

No. With time travel (which most of my books are) you can go anywhere, any time past, present or future and draw in elements of any other genre.

Tell us where our readers can find you on the web.

The best place is my website at on my contacts page.

If I could also take a moment for a personal interest of mine, on my Links page ( I have some information on organ donation. Organ or tissue donation is perhaps the most precious gift we could ever give.

Thank you for sharing that with all of us, Regan. I agree that organ or tissue donation is quite important and something all should consider. And, thanks so much for joining me today. It was a pleasure having you here and I look forward to many more of your books. Keep them coming!

Thank you for having me!

Please take a look at Regan's, Her Eyes below.

What would you do to be with the one you love? Would you die and find a way, any way possible, back to them?

When Frank White married Catherine he took to heart the words "for better or for worse." With Catherine he got the worst of the worse, or did he?

After Catherine attempts to murder Frank while he sleeps, much to her surprise, Frank's dog, Win lashes out at her. When Catherine wakes, something very strange has happened, so strange that even Catherine has no idea what.
