Romance Author Janelle Taylor Takes On A New Genre!

Janelle Taylor, the award winning romance author of over fifty novels, has just released her first book for children — How The Zebra Got Its Stripes. 

Romance fans have been reading Taylor’s works since the early 1980s. In the last three decades she has written in many romance subgenre including romantic suspense and contemporary romance. However the author is best known for her historical romance books. (Her 2003 novel, Lakota Flower, won that year's RT Reviewers' Choice Award for Best Western.) 

The author’s newest venture is something entirely different: her first novel for young readers. The story of How The Zebra Got Its Stripes features the wild animals children (and adults) love, and an unexpected Christmas gift they get from Santa. The book is illustrated by Judy Avrett published in traditional and e-book formats by Blue Willow Press.

There's good news for Taylor's romance fans, too. During November, readers will be treated to two new romances by the talented author. The first is a novel from Bell Bridge Books, Kiss of the Christmas Wind, and the second is a short story in holiday anthology Hot Toddy Sizzlers, which also includes works from authors Joan Reeves, Elaine Raco Chase and Cynthia Wicklund. And then keep your eyes open for two new stories of romance from Taylor in the next year, she releases Winds of Change and Valley of Fire in March and April, respectively!
