On Taylor Harding Jenkins

Okay, so let’s start with the most important, why does Taylor Harding-Jenkins want to remain anonymous?
Erm… Do I need a reason for that?
Hum, there could be a reason. At least the beginning of an explanation. It is explained in the first opus of my book, “Free Expensive Lies – Prologue”, at the author’s note and disclaimer. Multiple reasons, most of which I want to keep to myself.

Is there nothing we could know about Taylor Harding-Jenkins?
Okay. So, let me think about what I could disclose. So, I live somewhere in the United Kingdom, I am in a relationship with the most beautiful woman in the world, I am a human being. Oh, yeah, I can say that I wasn’t born in the United Kingdom. And I was born somewhere between 1990 and 1999. And for those who might suspect it, no, Charlotte’s date of birth is different from mine.
What else… Oh, yeah, I am also a trans woman. This is something I could say about myself. I’ve been transitioning for a while.
My hobbies, what I do in my free time, well, I love my Xbox, I play a lot of video games. I watch a lot of films; they give me some ideas that I could exploit in my book. It may surprise you, but I don’t actually read that much, first, because I don’t have time for that, and second, the very last book that I loved was when I was twelve. So, a while ago. And I had to read it because it was for school, and YES, it was a massive PAIN because the book was just too long and too boring. Regarding contemporary writers, at least the books that are published, I don’t find anything really interesting at the moment.

Is Taylor Harding-Jenkins an idiot?
No.

Was Taylor Harding-Jenkins born in the UK?
Maybe.

Is Taylor Harding-Jenkins currently alive?
Probably. Who knows? Let me check this out.

What does Taylor Harding-Jenkins look like?
A human being. As far as I’m concerned.
I mean, I have two legs, two arms, a body, a head, two eyes, a mouth, a nose, two ears, you know, just like everyone. And I’m lucky, they’re all functioning.

Is Taylor Harding-Jenkins a talented writer?
Much more talented than JK Rowling. And, unlikeher, I never disclose my opinion regarding trans people. Of course, I am, I mean, come on…

Will Taylor Harding-Jenkins ever reveal her true identity? Or what if I find her true identity?
This is something I’ve been considering. Right now, not at all. I prefer to remain hidden in the light. This is my choice, and I expect it to be respected. If you guys don’t mind.
After, if you ever find my own identity, congratulations. I mean, that would be good for you. The problem is, even though you even find it someday, I will never confirm that what you found is right.

How long has Taylor Harding-Jenkins been working on Free Expensive Lies?
Finally, an interesting question. So, I’ve been working on the Free Expensive Lies series, for now, eight years. Because, yes, I started working on the series on the 9th of January 2013. So… For those who were curious about Charlotte’s date of birth, here’s your explanation. For publishing the first opus in 2021. So, imagine the time I could have been creating. It took me about eight years to submit this to you. Eight years of creation.
I started working on Charlotte in my bedroom when I was still a teen, and now I’m settled down with my wife. And still working at least ten hours a day on it.

How long does it take to write another opus?
Well, I guess it depends. I assessed the second opus for at least two years. For instance, working on a new chapter takes me at least two to three days of work. As we need to settle the intrigue, the events, the interactions with characters and between characters, where it will take place when it will take place, how it will take place, and all that things. Believe it or not, but this is A LOT OF WORK. And a book has an average of at least forty chapters.
Usually, it takes about two months to have a script ready, nine to ten months to write and complete it, same time for reading, if not more, and then, after, the time to proof and format. That’s a lot of work.
The thing is, I still have a job to pay my bills, as I do not yet live from my passion. It’s a lot of work, a lot of hopes, and, I guess it’s like every project. With a willing heart, nothing is impossible.

Okay Taylor, so what’s the future for Charlotte Kominsky?
Charlotte and I, well, that’s such a long story. For now, I scheduled her for at least eight opuses, but there will probably be more than this. As I speak, I’m currently working on the second opus, but I also have ideas for the third opus and the fourth already.

What about music? Does Taylor Harding-Jenkins ever listen to music?
Hell yeah, I love music!
I am very eclectic on this point, I mean, I can listen to Mozart to Tupac, so I have a lot of artists that I love. Recently, I’ve been listening to a lot to Evanescence, Muse, I also fell in love with the soundtrack of the video game Little Nightmares (I mean, come on, this video game is just a masterpiece!), I also love Skyrim’s music. In Classical music, yeah, I’m more into Mozart, I love Beethoven as well.
My favourite musical genre is rock, pop/rock, and, video game soundtracks too. More recently, especially for starting to write this second opus, I’ve been listening to a lot of French variety.

What? Video games? What kind of video games?
