My Biography

I am a Sanford native and sixth generation Floridian. I began my newspaper career in high school writing for the Sanford (Fla.)

I began writing for the Orlando Sentinel in late 1973 while I was working for the Seminole County Sheriff's Office and joined the Sentinel fulltime in May 1974. I am married to Bonnie Wieboldt Taylor and we have one son, Charles.
