"THE COLORS OF CALLAS: Reflections of an Icon" by Taylor Pero and Patrick C. Byrne. An unusual biography of Maria Callas published by Llumina Press, September 2002. This enchanting, meticulously researched work proves once and for all that Maria Callas was, indeed, a human being. It has all the ingredients of a sweeping motion picture about unrequited love and sacrificing one's life for their art.

 "DELICIOUS DISH by GABBY: All the Dish that's Fit to Fling". A hilarious and uplifting view of Hollywood, world politics, celebrity events, and lifestyles of the rich and famous conceived and written by Taylor Pero. Visit Gabby's website at www.gabby4dish for background information and visit the archives for samples of Gabby's dish. Her favorite is the one about The Edinburgh Music Festival.

 "ALWAYS, LANA", Bantam Books, 1982. Currently under consideration as a major motion picture, this is the true story of Taylor Pero's ten-year, 24/7 association with screen legend, Lana Turner. It plays like a modern day SUNSET BOULEVARD; the younger man trapped in the gilded cage of a dying ember in the life of a former movie goddess.

Other projects:

 “SAVAGE” A novel based on Taylor Pero’s own experience as a performer and publicist for a major celebrity during the daring 60’s. He traveled the world and saw the raw tragedy of the Viet Nam conflict.

 “Two Weeks With Miss D” A one-character play based on Taylor Pero’s brief but unforgettable discipline working with legendary Bette Davis.

 “BILLY” A novel of infidelity, spousal abuse, child abandonment, molestation, and escape into the world of show business and homosexuality.
