Valerie Taylor

“If you ever wondered what it's like to be a fly on the wall, you NEED to read Valerie Taylor's What's Not Trilogy. I have come to love these characters as if they were real-life friends. Warning: The yearning to follow them will remain long after you close the book. Taylor is an EXPERT at dialogue and pulling her readers right into the scene! I will buy ANY book this author publishes. She is a new favorite!” — Suzanne Simonetti, USA best-selling author of The Sound of Wings
