 Sean Taylor

Ruby Files co-creator Sean Taylor writes short stories, novellas, novels, graphic novels and comic books (yes, Virginia, there is a difference between comic books and graphic novels, just like there's a difference between a short story and a novel). In his writing life, he has directed the “lives” of zombies, super heroes, goddesses, dominatrices, Bad Girls, pulp heroes, and yes, even frogs, for such diverse bosses as IDW Publishing, Gene Simmons, and The Oxygen Network.

Between horror movies and cartoons, that is.

He's the former managing editor of Campfire (formerly Elfin) graphic novels, where he oversaw the publication of graphic novels based on classic literature, world literature and historical biographies, as well as original works.

In addition to all that, he's also been a staff writer, managing editor and editorial vice president for iHero Entertainment's Writer’s Digest Grand Prize Zine Award-winning Cyber Age Adventures magazine ("The very first zine award, as a matter of fact," he adds with great pride).

He's also the former editor-in-chief of Shooting Star Comics, where he edited the critically acclaimed Children of the Grave comics series and edited and contributed to the fan favorite Shooting Star Comics Anthology, and was creator and author of the Fishnet Angel: Jane Doe comic book miniseries.

As if he weren't already overworked and exhausted, he's also written and edited for the role-playing game industry as well, having contributed to the DCU Role Playing Game published by West End Games (Gotham City Sourcebook, Titans Sourcebook, and Green Lantern Sourcebook) and having edited the Cyber Age Adventures Role Playing Game.

He's the former editor for the Baptist Men Edition of On Mission magazine and the former associate editor of On Mission magazine, and during his tenure on the magazine's staff, it won an EPA Higher Goals award (a religious publishing version of a Folio, basically). He has won several awards for his periodical work, and has contributed articles and book and music reviews to such national periodical publications as Inside the Lines, Home Life, Church Administration, CCM, CBA Marketplace (formerly Bookstore Journal), and others.
