Collision (Portland Street Kings Book 1)


When I was fourteen years old, I killed for the first time. That day I learned cruelty wasn’t only within the walls we had just escaped.

It hasn’t been easy growing up in the middle of a war. A struggle to find shelter. Fighting to protect our bodies against the corruption of the streets. Nobody cared about the street kids who had to beg and steal to eat.

Now we are the Portland Street Kings – A family forged through loyalty not blood. To get through this life of broken dreams alive, we’ve become hard, uncaring and merciless. We do what must be done to keep our family safe, we will harm those who stand against us.

We have it all, feared and respected by those on the streets. Then she collided into my world, and with her came demons from my past, back to haunt us all.



“I absolutely loved Collision! Slater and Piper are so good together and the ending will blow you away. I never saw it coming. If you enjoy a sexy, suspenseful romance with a hot, badass alpha hero, you won’t go wrong reading this story. Can’t wait to read Mac and Lana’s story.” by Angela Amos

“Surprisingly good…excellent characters. A great storyline and the writing was pretty good. Plenty of action, naughty scenes, violence and romance.
Boy meets girl and fights their attraction. Although he pushes her away initially, he eventually gives in to his feelings and fights for her. Throw in a bad boy attitude, a turf war, gangs and heap of violence and you still get a good story.
I will continue with the series. Recommended.” by Tany B

“The author provided a very well-developed plot and characters. Serisously, I could picture the man candy and he was amazingly ripped. Oh, and I never guessed the plot twist was comong, although thinking back, it makes sense!
I kind of wish I knew what Rex was going to decide to do, but I understand needing something to lead into the next book of the series.”  by Wendy W.

Samhain Island


Samhain Island is riddled with conspiracy theories, urban legends, and various monsters. This is the island Tremaine Boppel moved to with her family. She’s happy to start over in a new town, but what’s in that tower by her apartment? Why will the tenant never come out? She’s about to unearth that there’s more to this island besides silly stories and shadows.



“I thoroughly enjoyed Samhain Island. It’s interesting both in plot and characters. This story kept my attention the entire time. There were unexpected turns and the book had a unique edge to it that can definitely be enjoyed by a broad age range of readers. My daughter also read Samhain Island. She couldn’t put it down. Looking forward to more work by Taylor Thomas.” by Mike Deges

“I’d like to start off by saying I was sent a free e-copy in exchange for my honest review. But this does not change my opinion in any way.
I absolutely enjoyed Samhain Island. The plot and characters were both very interesting. I couldn’t put the book down once I started reading, there was not a point in the book where I felt uninterested or bored. There were many surprising and unexpected turns in the book which had me at the edge of my seat at all times. I found myself trying to read the book under my desk at school due to my anticipation to continue reading the book. I overall enjoyed the the book and can’t wait to get my hands on the next book due to the ending.” by Erika M

“What a nice surprise. It hooked me right from the beginning and was suspenseful throughout. The ending had me wanting to know more and to see what would happen next. Now I will be counting the days until the next installment.” by Sue Hanson



I grew up right outside of D.C. and I am attending college now.
My first novel, Samhain Island: Episode One, was published October 30th.


Werewolf Origin


Werewolf Origin was inspired by the 1941 movie, “The Wolf Man.” This classic film starred Lon Chaney, Jr. A clan of gypsies comes into a village in Wales. Lon Chaney is bitten by a werewolf in his attempt to save a girl. The girl dies, but he did kill the monster, who was Bela, a gypsy fortuneteller. Unfortunately for Lon, he becomes a werewolf, and so begins the genre. What is not revealed is how Bela first became a wolf man; this book is a prequel to the movie and reveals this mystery.

More than that, this novella is about love, friendship, and determination. There is a strong independent woman, Larene who works with the young dedicated physician, Dr. Paul Thomas. Together as a team, aided by their friends, they experience something incredible.

Written by Dr. Alex Cullison, an author who brings imagination, adventure, romance, fear, and sensitivity to this story. Werewolf Origin was written to provide entertainment to a wide range of readers, both young and old.

This book is illustrated.



“Werewolf Origin is a fascinating take on the origins of the classic wolf man tale! The writing style is reminiscent of a lighter version of many of the old, classic novels. The concept of the story is creative and the plot moves along quickly. Overall, this book is a very enjoyable read!” by Stacy Davis
