about Taylor Siluwé
"I love telling stories - especially sexy ones. Eroticism is the engine of life. Therefore, I believe everyone loves a steamy tale, whether they admit it or not.
My favorite quote about writing is from Ernest Hemingway: 'Write hard and clear about what hurts.' That's what intrigues me - the pain and internal struggle between what we want and what we actually allow ourselves to do. I write the things people think, but are scared shitless to act on. Because we all have inner Devils, and sometimes they come out and dance." ~ Taylor Siluwé
Since writing and directing a ninth-grade production titled Land of the Mandinka (an African Romeo & Juliet), Taylor Siluwé has had a burning passion to write. He then went on to study Creative Writing at New York University and has been published in Details, Venus, Literary New York, Out IN Jersey & FlavaLIFE magazines. His erotically charged short story, A Taste for Cherries appeared in the anthology Tough Guys before being released in its KINDLE only limited edition. His steamy and apocalyptic tale of obsession run amok, When Romeo Wakes first appeared in the eZine Velvet Mafia. His work has since appeared in the anthologies, Law of Desire (Alyson Publications), and Best Gay Erotica 2008 (Cleis Press).
Victor Hoff (Men Of Color blog, The Sword, et al) sums up Taylor's latest offering -- the darkly provocative guiltiest pleasure read, DANCING WITH THE DEVIL -- with these words: "Taylor Siluwé journeys into some of the most hellish scenarios one would expect to find love and yet, as the writer more than capably shows, love, like weeds through brick, sprouts in many of the most unlikely places."
The Jersey City native and amateur shutterbug spends his time writing and taking pretty pictures for Out IN Jersey magazine (most distributed regional for the LGBT community). Taylor is currently at work bringing his dark masterpiece Dancing with the Devil to the screen, while promoting its whimsical follow-up Cheesy Porn...and other fairytales. His third book is in the works, tentatively titled Something About Sin. Stay tuned.
Dancing with the Devil & Cheesy Porn are available on Amazon or TaylorSiluwe.com.
