I have had the pleasure of getting to know this new author- Tre Vaugh Taylor. His very first book -THE PROJECT OF BEING A WOMEN came out 2 years ago. Since then – this young man has been very busy. He has written another book last year entitled WHAT’S THE T. And then this year is about to release his third book – it is a follow up of the THE PROJECT OF BEING A WOMEN-THE AFTER EFFECT (PART 2)
Tre sat down with Mismousey the other morning for a few minutes. I was so happy that he could take time out of his busy schedule for us. i hope you enjoy our conversation .
Good Morning and welcome to Mousey Books. This morning we welcome back Tre Vaugh Taylor. Please give him a BIG MOUSE WELCOME!!!
Mousey–It’s great having you back with us Tre. And I see you have been very busy since you last stopped by for a chat. You know have 2 books out The’ Project of Being a Women “and more recently” What’s the T?” Now you are working on your 3rd book. Would you please tell us some about it please?
Tre— Hello, thank you for having me again. It’s always a pleasure to speak with you and update supporters of my work (ART). Far as the answer to your question; I am in the process of writing the 3rd novel. It’s the follow up to my 1st novel which was a fan favorite. I recently started getting hit ups about it. And I truly understand the anticipation; because I’m the same way with things I can’t get enough of. I’m in a different place with this novel; I’m happy, in love and excited to create. During the process of my second book everything was changing. Relationships failed, pain was felt and I had days I didn’t want to wake up. I didn’t want to die or anything— I just wanted to get a break from things for a minute. Peace is so important to an artist. Cause we can create from so many places. I like to create from a good head space. My head was clouded but I still created a masterpiece. (Both books is available now amazon and Barnes & Noble.com. ) I do want everyone to know that the 3rd novel is coming and they will be on their feet!
Mousey– From what I hear you have a musical side of you. And that you have been working on that. I hear you a project coming out soon. Is that true? If so- can you tell us more about it?
Tre— Yes, this musical side of me has always been there. Starting from the age 9 years ago. I use to be in my mother room writing love songs and singing. After I learned that I had the gift of rapping; I then focused more on that around 2010. I wasn’t as confident as I am today to work on music then. So I placed the musical side of me in the back of my mind. And I didn’t touch it weirdly until after my 2015 break up. I had emotions to get out and I wrote them into a rap. Then I wrote song after song after song. I rapped for a couple people and they were like “Wow, this is different.” And I just stuck with it and continued writing and working on my flow. I currently have a few songs out (that people love!) you can find them on my sound cloud: T.Taylor. I’m currently working on a mixtape which is called “Boys Just Wanna Have Fun.” And it’s going to be very epic, emotional, interesting and rap-full. I think people don’t take anyone serious because of their sexuality. I am, how women were looked at in the 1960’s. Only being looked at as a sexual thing or something less than a man. I can spit, I can hang with the dudes. I get busy with the pen. I’m learning and growing as a musical artist and my new work will show it. I want everyone to not box me in. Just let me be creative as I can be.
Mousey— I see that you have been very active or rather are active. You have started up a campaign which is called “Boys Like Us “Can you give us more information on? And do you plan on it being larger than just in area?
Tre-Yes, I’m currently working on my campaign “Boys Like Us”. Which it’s a reintroduction to society. Many LGBT youth kids starting from the age 9 years; are thrown out of their homes because of their sexuality. Many black and Latino homes lack the education of LGBT lifestyles. And as humans we either try to learn things or discredit them. I want my campaign to go global and it will in due time. Just working out a few kinks. After the numerous deaths of black LGBT youths last year I walked into the activist side. We need justice, we need the comfort of being who we are. And that’s my job. To earn that comfort and respect we deserve as people. Fighting for boys the who thought they couldn’t win.
Mousey– you are still working at the modeling agency – how do you find the time to compose your music and write your books?
Tre—Yes, I am still signed with them. I will be doing work with them soon. I don’t know honestly. I remember the days when I didn’t have anything going on and now I do. It’s just time to get to business. I try to find a balance for everything. Because of me still
Learning and growing. I learn how to handle things and how to approach them.
Mousey—I realize that you must have had a lot of hardships -ups and downs. Your campaign deals with the LGBT. Was that part of the hardship?
Tre—Yes, I deal with ignorant people all the time. Being young- black – gay and talented; I deal with so much. If it’s not my sexuality, it’s the color of my skin. Many people aren’t comfortable with themselves so they constantly try to break down others.
Mousey—Is there anything that you can tell your readers that going on? Other projects? What can we look for to come?
Tre—I just want everyone to know that there will be a lot of ART this year from me. I’m working and creating (learning for the most) God has a big plan with my life. So I don’t worry, I just create.
Mousey-is there anything that you would like to tell your readers?
Tre-Thank you. Simply thank you for sticking with me. I loved meeting everyone last year at the book signing. Even though everyone wasn’t able to come. I still had a great time. I still felt the love in the room. I just want everyone to continue going for their dreams and use me as a blue print. If I can do it, then so can you. Keep pushing yourself and let love, success and happiness find you. Don’t search for it. I can’t wait for y’all to enjoy my new projects. Thank you God. And special thank you to Mousey Books.
Mousey-Thank you so much for joining us today and taking time out of your busy schedule. I look forward to reading the next part in THE PROJECT OF BEING A WOMEN -THE AFTER EFFECT. I have to know what happened to all my girls. Make sure you go out to Amazon and get your copy of Tre’s books The Project of Being a Women and also What’s The T! They both are amazing great reads. I look forward to hearing more from you and to hearing your music.
