About Hoen Taylor
I’m a Christian, a science geek, a writer, and an incurable tinkerer.
I’ve built giant industrial robots, created video games, built sets for professional theater, and shoveled manure for a living. I love technology and the challenge of explaining it in simple terms.
I always wanted to be one of the only survivors of some disaster that wiped out everyone else on earth. You could live in a mansion, set off explosives for fun, and fly a helicopter. Or just sit around all day and eat Doritos. But all the existing post-apocalyptic movies and books are about fighting off zombies and mutants and being grimy all the time.
“I wish someone would would write a post-apocalyptic book that’s fun!” I would say, and then promptly forget about it.
My epiphany came when I was reading a popular fantasy novel that just got more and more annoying until I threw the book across the room and shouted, “I could write a better book than this!”
Instead of just dreaming about it, I did it. I attended writing conferences, wrote drafts, got feedback from readers, and revised and revised. The result is Fixer, a cheerful post-apocalyptic science-fiction magical fantasy romance novel. With explosions.
Now, where did I put those Doritos?
