Event description
Host Russ Colchamiro interviews Dennis Taylor about his transition from computer programmer to best-selling AI/Sci-Fi author

About this event

DENNIS TAYLOR is a retired computer programmer, snowboarder, mountain-biker, runner, and now author.

While working at his day job as a computer programmer, Dennis self-published his first novel and began working with an agent to try to publish his second novel We Are Legion. However, Dennis still had difficulty getting any publishing house to take on his work, and eventually published it through his agent's in-house publishing arm. An audiobook rights deal with Audible was also reached. Once recorded, We Are Legion became one of the most popular audiobooks on the service and was awarded Best Science Fiction Audiobook of the year.

Dennis has been noted as one of many popular authors that debut their work in audio form rather than print to take advantage of the explosive growth of the audio medium.

Dennis's 2018 novel The Singularity Trap as well as his 2020 novel Heaven's River debuted on the New York Times Bestseller List for Fiction Audiobooks.

In September 2020, Taylor released his sixth novel Heaven's River, a sequel in the "Bobiverse" series. The new novel follows a loose thread from the earlier novels involving the Bob clone named "Bender", who had disappeared mysteriously many years before and prompts a galaxy spanning search.

RUSS COLCHAMIRO is the author of the new sci-fi mystery novels Crackle and Fire and Fractured Lives, featuring his hardboiled intergalactic private eye Angela Hardwicke. He is also the author of the rollicking time travel/space adventure, Crossline, the SFF backpacking comedy series Finders Keepers, Genius de Milo, and Astropalooza, editor of the sci-fi mystery anthology Love, Murder & Mayhem, and co-author of the noir anthology Murder in Montague Falls.

A member of the Mystery Writers Association, Russ is currently writing the third book in his Angela Hardwicke series, and has written more than a dozen short stories for various anthologies. He is also host of the long-running podcast Russ’s Rockin’ Rollercoaster, interviewing a who’s who of science fiction, crime, and mystery authors.

Russ lives in New Jersey with his wife, two ninjas, and his black lab Jinx.
