Horror Stories, Paranormal Mysteries, and Dark Art Photography


Welcome to the online home of writer and photographer April A. Taylor. I write everything from light paranormal mysteries to hardcore horror. I also have a line of Dark Art and Fine Art photos that explore the creepy side of life.


Missing in Michigan: Alexa Bentley Paranormal Mysteries Book One –(STYLE – Paranormal mystery, witty humor, light romance, and the slightest touch of horror) 

The Haunting of Cabin Green – (STYLE – Modern Gothic upmarket horror novel that includes some graphic gore, profanity, and sex)

Both of these books are expected to be out by the end of 2018. Updates regarding their release dates will be posted here.


My non-fiction horror writing has been featured by many sites, including Graveyard Shift and Bloody Disgusting. Over at Graveyard Shift, I’ve amassed more than 3.5 million views by crafting original pieces about topics such as children’s horror literatureextreme haunted housescryptidstrue crime, horror movies, and things that are just plain creepy.


My horror and dark art photography has been included in multiple media formats, including several books, magazines, and the short horror film CathARTic. In total, my photos have been published and exhibited in more than 100 places worldwide. Numerous pieces are available for licensing for everything from book covers to haunted attraction promotional pieces.

I’ve been providing high quality content writing for websites, magazines, eBooks and white papers since 2010. Although my primary focus is on horror, I have also ghostwritten pieces about almost every topic imaginable for high traffic sites such as Huffington Post.
