D.J. Taylor is a Popular British Best Selling Author and crime novelist and acclaimed biographer writer, as well as critic and reviewer of the arts and writing. D.J. falls into a couple different categories of style and niche. He recently wrote a crime novel based in the Britain’s past.
Categorically D.J. writes about the world in the eyes of the British and UK based which we live and play. Books and writings about UK history and biographies have been a staple in libraries for decades. The interest in things such as war and mystery and stories of people, among other things have been made into books and are showcased in the past, present and future and are relative to the society we live in today. Life is full of surprises and history finds its way into every fabric of life. Writers for many years have written about the reality of history and turned those historical experiences or facts into educational and fun books surrounding those topics of history and truths about peoples lives. The need for good versus bad and good always winning doesn’t always play well in history and the things that exist around history. This brings me to the modern day author of many historical related books and biographies; D.J. Taylor.
D.J. Taylor has come from a place that likely has many subjects and facts of everyday history around life in the UK. D.J. grew up in the Britain, D.J. now lives in the small area of Norwich in the United Kingdom. It’s a quaint little area nestled away from the big city. Europe seems to be the author capital of the world for many. D.J. Taylor has been the recipient for The Whitbread Biography Award in 2003. He also took home many more honors. He has also been invited to be the first ever Tin-House Writer-In-Residence partnership for the University of Portland and being recognized by many writer’s guilds and alliances.
D.J. has written several historical fiction books and biographies, as well as the occasional mystery and takes great inspiration from the world and nature that surrounds us everywhere. D.J. writes with great passion about different areas of British history and famous historical people, everything from wars to crime capers and does so with great wit and style. Some of his books include, but certainly not limited to Thackeray and Orwell: The Life to name a few. He has written more than books as well. He has appeared on many syndicated publications for offering up his critiques and reviews on things writer centric.
D.J. Taylor resides with his wife, Rachel Hore, who coincidentally is a well-known author or novelist as well. Without getting into his wife’s works we will just say that they make a great team and writing is their theme. They do have three children, all of whom are boys. They certainly will not fail writing and literature in school that is for sure. Future authors…maybe.
One thing about D.J. Taylor is that he is never satisfied, he is always striving to do the best work he can, in whatever medium that takes place in. D.J. loves to travel the world and learn. He is a well-known and heavily sought after critic and public speaker whose spirited lecture style has informed, motivated and inspired so many people in so many different aspects of writing thru his critiques and reviews.
D.J. began his writing career with the release of his first book and it was published in 2003, which he has many, but specifically this one is aptly called “Thackary”. This was D.J.’s very first book, and is basically a memoir of Thackary. It is a book about this famous person, what he learned and what he did with this nugget of history about this individual. It will make for a great housewarming book or book for first time. There have been splendid reviews about this book and how it has helped many a beginning historian learn about this person in history.
Another wonderful and splendid works of D.J.’s writing is “Orwell: The Life”. This is the first of a series that is not about just historical but fictional as well. This is a book based upon real and true facts about Orwell and what his life entailed with some fiction built in to the fact sheet. The main character Orwell is a bit of a different soul for his era in history, he is just a different soul. He is much more of a brute than most men, he really has no desire to get married or be a part of any domestic affairs, and has been a icon for modern day thinkers. The story is about Orwell and his successes at authoring novels. His fame came with “Animal Farm” and “1984”. The ideas and thinking that Orwell had in his day to day life is astounding, his motivations are very inspiring to many around the globe. Orwell had such a grasp on everyday life, the future of our culture in the world and how he saw it playing out, that today in our modern era, we have a way of thinking called Orwellian. This is a phenomenal modern era take on Mr. Orwell himself.
D.J. Taylor is available for speaking engagements and still writes his books in the United Kingdom as of today. He is constantly working on new books and topics. He can often be found in a library or looking online researching historical people for his biographies and history the British and European topics in history and will be writing a book about those historical moments in time and brought to life thru the eyes of D.J. We would be remiss to not bring up the fact that D.J. is an avid coffee drinker and is a self-proclaimed coffee snob.
