As the domain suggests, you’ve landed on the personal website for John Tayman, author, editor, and occasional startup-er.

I’ve written one bestseller, founded two award-winning startups, launched six magazines, been nominated for twenty National Magazine Awards, and published thirty-two bestsellers by authors such as Jon Krakauer, Amy Tan, Sebastian Junger, Carl Hiaasen, Margaret Atwood, and Nick Hornby. For a deeper dive on those numbers, please see the About page.

I’m currently working on The Wanted, a narrative history of the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitives program, to be published by Crown.
