Gary Taylor is a veteran journalist and author of the award-winning true crime memoir Luggage By Kroger.

Background Information


During a forty-year career as a newspaper and magazine journalist, I have covered crime, courts and legal affairs for multiple publications, including The Houston Post, The National Law Journal and Time Magazine. I began my career after graduation from the University of Missouri’s School of Journalism, where I won the Walter Williams Award as the outstanding writer in the class of 1969.  
As a newspaper reporter, I was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize on a series of stories that freed an aging convict from prison and I won the Texas UPI Enterprise reporting award for stories exposing police corruption. As a freelance journalist from 1980-1997, I expanded my expertise to business writing, sports and larger general interest stories. Since 1997 I have specialized in business reporting as a staffer for trade publications covering the chemical and oil industries. Find more details on my web site at
