April A. Taylor e-book (1)

“Alexa (Alex) Bentley is the type of main character I love… the plot grabbed me and made me want to read on, while the lightheartedness made the story even more enjoyable… I couldn’t work out the solution to the mystery… this is a book I would be quite happy to read a second time.” –Long and Short Reviews, Orchid

“The story is fast-paced, the plot entertaining, the characters – in particular Alexa – are intriguing… this is a gripping read that fans of paranormal mysteries will certainly enjoy.” – I Heart Reading, Majanka

“I love it! I enjoy the writing… Its easy to read. The author’s voice is fresh and inviting! I was intrigued from beginning to end! Alex is my favorite new “ghost therapist” and “sleuth who sees dead people.” I honestly can’t wait till book 2!” – Goodreads User – 5 stars

“I love Alex! She’s the witty, sometimes snarky, definitely quirky best friend you didn’t know you needed. The story is fast paced, entertaining, and keeps you hooked. I highly recommend this book!” – Goodreads User – 5 stars

“This was a really great read… Liked the flow of the author’s writing, she kept things moving quickly, and not dragged on in the writing just to fill up space… Really have no complaints about book, other then it ended too quickly, lol. Enjoyable enough read that has me wanting to read the others in the series.” – Goodreads User – 5 stars 


Reviews for The Haunting of Cabin Green


“Unique… the author depicts the grieving process amazingly well. The story is claustrophobic… and what an ending it is. All of the flashbacks and delusions suddenly make sense… [it’s a] sucker punch.” – HorrorTalk, Jennifer Turner

“This was a very interesting psychological thriller that takes place in a cabin in the woods. It reminded me of a Stephen King novel. This was a steady paced story, and then you get slammed with something that happens which is so bizarre you can only imagine the difficulty for the character. This book was interesting from beginning to end and Taylor did a fantastic job on her detail of the eerie experiences that become Ben’s reality. If you enjoy horror don’t miss out on this story!” – N.M. McGregor, Author of The Montana Series (Goodreads User – 5 stars)

“The Haunting of Cabin Green instantly caught my attention… a literary treat. Exceptionally written and beautifully descriptive… The author does a wonderful job of pulling you in and keeping you hooked. I literally couldn’t put it down, and I finished it the same day I started. Eerie and filled with angst, you are in for a journey like no other, a true psychedelic horror experience that will leave you wanting more. It is written so intelligently that the very plot may leave some who are not well versed in abstract twist endings confused and wanting… I enjoyed a lot of the social aspects of the novel and found it to be very progressive and with the times as well. A true modern horror classic in the making.” – Amazon Customer – 5 stars

“This book is absolutely enthralling, I haven’t been so glued to a novel in years. I lead a busy life, and finding a gem like this is a welcome distraction. Consider me thrilled!!!” – Amazon Customer – 5 stars

“This one has stuck with me for days. It’s sad and dark, but it’s also funny at times (I love the horror movie references!). It really says a lot about society. I need a second go-round now to look for all the symbolism. Surprisingly ambitious for a debut novel.” – Amazon Customer – 5 stars

“Wow was this dark, but in a good way. I can’t stop thinking about the ending and all of the different threads the author wove together. Well written, truly horrific and it made me cry a couple of times. This might be too dark/depressing for some, but if you like dark horror, I recommend it.” – Goodreads User – 5 stars

“This is a keep you on the edge of your seat read! I love the diverse characters, and felt drawn in from chapter one.” – Amazon Customer – 5 stars


Reviews for Vasilisa the Terrible: A Baba Yaga Story


“Beautifully Bewitching. I enjoyed this dark fairy tale immensely. It’s a fast-paced, captivating tale and the writing is exquisite. I’ll definitely be looking for more work from this author. Highly recommended!” – Amazon Customer – 5 stars

“A modern twist on an old fairytale, Vasilisa will not disappoint the reader. The momentum of the story increases as you read and draws right to the last page where you quickly wish it had not ended. It is very well written and creative and not like the many other books out there that have witches in them. ” – Amazon Customer – 5 stars

“A Fascinating Subversion of a Fairy Tale. Vasilisa the Terrible is a postmodern fairy tale well worth reading… I was enthralled. The story is like a witch’s spell drawing the reader in.” – Amazon Customer – 5 stars
