Chase Taylor Hackett was raised on a farm in the Midwest--far from his current home in New York City. His first novel — Where Do I Start? — was recently published by Kensington Books.
At the end of that book, he realized he was left with a character who was a total jerk, and he wondered: What would happen if the jerk met someone who had zero tolerance for jerks?
And the Next Thing You Know… he’d written another novel.
After a career in the theatre, Chase has only recently turned to fiction with the Why You? series. He lives in upper Manhattan with his partner Travis, and his writing partner Watson, the very wise Scottish terrier.
