John is a small town reporter who has just been given the chance of a lifetime.  The notorious serial killer, Taylor the Tailor, has requested him personally to write her life story.  The catch is John has only three days before Taylor is to be electrocuted to interview her.

During those three days John unravels a story like no other.  Overwhelmed in just the first interview, John turns to his young assistant Lauren for help.  Lauren readily agrees and heads to Taylor's hometown to come up with cold hard facts to help make Taylor's story a credible one.

However, both Lauren and John quickly realize that Taylor's tale may not be that easy to prove.  Although both of them are skeptics at heart, they are finding out that Taylor's story is not an easy one to understand or believe.  Especially with its supernatural undertones.

John's interviews start off with Taylor's childhood and to his horror John realizes that Taylor had begun to kill as early as the age of four with her first victim being her father.  As Taylor grows up her list of victims increases as her skills for being "The Tailor" sharpen.

Tim is Taylor's brother who had been institutionalized at a very young age; upon being released Tim had changed his name so as not to be connected with Taylor in any fashion.  Unfortunately, due to Taylor's impending doom, Tim finds himself thrown back into Taylor's world.

Tim and Lauren team up to try and put a stop to Taylor's evil once and for all.  Yet, all three of them question why Taylor wants her story to be told now?  Is it to seek redemption for all the bad deeds she has done, knowing her time is limited?  Maybe, it's to brag to the world how much she got away with and how she did it?  Or is it something so much darker that none of them will find out until the third day at the stroke of midnight?


Excerpt

PROLOGUE


All the women gathered around Anne to watch her open her presents. It had turned out to be such a nice baby shower. One by one, Anne opens the presents with all the women ooohing and ahhing over each item.

The next present is a huge box with beautiful gold wrapping. Anne gently sits it on her lap, as she does the baby kicks. Anne laughs, "Wow this one must be really special even the baby is excited!" All the women laugh along with her.

Carrie, Anne's best friend, is keeping track of all the cards. As Anne opens the box, Carrie asks for the card. Anne stops and looks all around and says, "This one doesn't seem to have one?"

Carrie looks around on the floor and agrees, "Yea, you're right. Maybe its inside the box?" Looking around at all the women, no one admits the present is theirs.

Anne takes all the wrapping off and slowly opens the present. All the women wait in anticipation. Anne looks inside the box with a puzzled look. She goes to bring the item out for all to see but with the first touch, she quickly takes her hand back in repulsion.

Not wanting to hurt anyone's feelings, Anne wills herself to pick up the item for all to see. The room suddenly gets quite. Carrie takes the box from Anne and tries to break the silence, "Wow that's something. I've never seen anything quite like that."

"I haven't either, you should feel it...it feels like it is real." Anne hands it to Carrie.

Carrie goes to take it but almost drops it the moment she feels it. Concerned Carrie asks, "You don't think it is, do you?"

Anne shrugs her shoulders and answers, "I don't know." It is the damnest thing she has ever seen. It is a full size teddy bear that is about two feet tall. The coloring is beautiful and the craftmanship is remarkable. But the fur is long and feels like some sort of animal hair, and the eyes, or lack of eyes, make it look even stranger.

Looking it over and trying to be nice, Carrie replies, "Well at least whoever made this was thoughtful enough to sew over the eyes." Carrie pokes at where the eyes should be, "Yea, it seems like the eyes are there they just must have wanted to make it baby proof that was thoughtful."

Carrie hands it back to Anne. Anne positions it on her lap looking out at the ladies in the room. Again, the baby moves but this time it feels like a hand is trying to come out and grab for the teddy bear.

Review by: Sharon Levy

A fantastic ending! The author keeps you going right up until the end, thought I had it figured out but the end had such a great twist! Definitely worth checking out!

Review by: Roger Klein

Not too many female serial killer books out there and this one sure did the trick! I loved that one it was a female doing the killing for a change and two the ending was awesome, I sure didn't see that one. Great book!


Taylor the Tailor
Reviewed by: Melissa Moxley

This book was so twisted, but in a good way. Tammy Vreeland may be new to the world of novels but her idea's and story lines are like a seasoned novelist. I was surprised and a little bit disturbed by this book, isn't that how all good horror/sci-fi is supposed to make you feel?
