A WELCOME FROM TAYLOR MARSH

“It’s a psychic puzzle, a time riddle until the plot unfolds. In MAY BE FATAL, I ask readers to go back and forth in history with the characters. The opening chapter occurs in 2009, with the next chapter ‘Present Day.'” – Taylor Marsh

Taylor writes #thrillers found on the shelf with Barbara Copperthwaite, Megan Abbott, Rachel Hargrove… She writes badass women characters who tread where safe spaces are hard to find.

Olivia’s Turn is available through AmazoniBooks, Kobo, Barnes & Noble. Get the audiobook on Audible, Amazon, or iTunes.
