A WELCOME FROM TAYLOR MARSH

“In MAY BE FATAL, I ask readers to go back and forth in history with the characters. It’s a metaphysical ride.”

Thanks for stopping by. My next book, CITIZEN KATE, is a political thriller and will be out in late fall. If you’re into politics, I’m on Twitter. Follow me on BookBub and Amazon to find out my next pub date. Olivia’s Turn is also available through Audible. #KindleUnlimited
