Mel Taylor is a homemaker and freelance writer whose work has appeared in newspapers, magazines, literary reviews and, most significantly, for a grownup kid who learned how to write from Classics Illustrated and Stan Lee, in comics. His collaborations with artist R.G. Taylor have appeared in Quadrant, Caliber Presents, Negative Burn,and Growing Up With Comics,as well as in his own zine, Bootleg Comics and Stories. He has a B.A. in drama from Brock University and a diploma in journalism from Conestoga College, and is also the author of Angels We Have Heard on High, a novella. While his passion is, first and foremost, for writing, he is also a guitar player, singer, juggler, tap dancer and cartoonist. Taylor lives in Kitchener, Ontario with his wife, Kim Radigan, who only reads comics when he writes them.

Date of Birth: May 17, 1954
Birthplace: Acton, Ontario, Canada


Taylor had his comics debut in the short-lived Quadrant Comics (Issues 4 and 5) in 1985, polishing a script for R.G. Taylor. He also spent some time posing for photo-reference as the character Asa Cohen in Dave Darrigo's Wordsmith from Deni Loubert's imprint, Renegade. In the late '80s, his foray into zines produced Bootleg Comics & Stories, which he still produces sporadically to the present.
There were six issues of Bootleg in the mini-comic format, followed by the Big Bootleg, all of which was reprinted in Negative Burn (Volume II).
Taylor has also been a frequent attraction at Free Comic Book Day, signing books and doing free sketches for fans.
He has recently completed his second novella, Fast Falls the Eventide.
