Unashamed (a self-help book) is based on Richard Taylor’s personal struggles due to bad decisions and a self destructive lifestyle. When Taylor felt there was no way out, he made a life and death decision — suicide. After making that decision and surviving, Richard decided to change his life for the better. Although faced with the many problems life can sometimes bring, he decided to embrace the process of healing….reconstruction.


Unashamed is not only a personal look inside a young man’s struggle with family, relationships and self esteem, but is a vivid representation of the life that many people silently face.

Between the Dream:

Love Between My Scars

Depression plagues the lives of millions daily. Suicide claims the souls of thousands on a regular basis. This deadly duo has a way of invading the personal space of the most innocent being. From childhood to adulthood, the possibility of a person experiencing depression or contemplating suicide has shifted from a private matter to a public battle. For any and everyone who has encountered feelings of doom and despair, there is good news for you. On the other side of your pain, there is a life of peace and joy and a promised purpose for you to be more than what you see. 


In Love Between My Scars, Richard L. Taylor, Jr. delivers us the ultimate example of a “pain to purpose” story. Fighting his way through personal struggles of image, self-love, belief and lies, Richard manages to transfigure his mess into a message that is sure to connect, captivate and comfort readers of all ages.  


“Between the Dream” is dedicated to individuals working towards their passion and goals, those who might be on the verge of giving up, and those who have put their dreams on hold completely. The author Richard Taylor’s purpose for “Between the Dream” is to inspire and assist the reader in becoming mobile in their pursuit.

- Book Reviews -

“This book is phenomenal. I just finished reading it. It has definitely blessed me with the courage to tell my story in the written form as well.Many times I have felt alone in my struggle as a single mother. But silence is a killer, its only when we open up about our TRUE STORY, and lay it all on the line that we are liberated from shame and when we emerge from darkness that we realize that we are not alone. This book is empowering! Keep up the great work Richard!!!”

- Aisha B.
