Lieutenant Colonel Donn E. Taylor, USA (ret.) “led an Infantry rifle platoon in the Korean War, served with Army aviation in Vietnam, and worked with air reconnaissance in Europe and Asia. Afterwards, he completed a PhD degree at The University of Texas and taught English literature at two liberal arts colleges. Donn Taylor is the author of: Rhapsody in Red; Dust and Diamond: Poems of Earth and Beyond; and, The Lazarus File.


According to the book description of Rhapsody in Red,It Was a Bad Day to Find a Corpse on Campus. Preston Barclay is a self-made recluse (and he likes it that way). Teaching college history allows him time to grieve the loss of his pianist wife and find relief from the musical hallucinations that have been playing in his head since her death. But when he and headstrong colleague, Mara Thorn, discover the body of another instructor on campus, Press’s monotonous solitude is shaken up.


When the preliminary evidence singles out Press and Mara, they must take some chances (including trusting each other) to build their own defense—by bending the rules just a little bit. They form an unlikely alliance to stay ahead of the police, the college’s wary and incompetent administration, and whoever is trying to get away with murder. Or else they both might end up unemployed, behind bars, or worse.”


According to the book description of The Lazarus File, “In Colombia, a CIA agent and a Colombian woman of good family, unwillingly thrown together, uncover an international terrorist attack against both of their counties. Held captive and marked for death in a remote Andean valley, they must find a way to prevent the terrorist strike. With action ranging over much of the Caribbean and the United States, this is a fast-paced narrative featuring unexpected plot twits, thrilling flight sequences, and emotionally charged personal relationships.”
