About me

Floats the Dark Shadow, my first historical mystery, is set in Belle Époque Paris and features a young American artist, a French cop, assorted poets, courtesans, criminals, and a crazed serial killer. Previously I wrote historical romance under my own name of Gayle Feyrer, and as Taylor Chase (books which I plan to release on Kindle in the near future). My sensibility in both genres is dark and intense. I’ve drawn since kidhood, and written since adolesence. I worship cats, chocolate, and cinema. My current obsession has been to design perfumes inspired by the characters and setting of my new book.
