Who Am I?

Taylor Marsh writes smart, arousing romance while deciphering world events. She lives in the Beltway area of Washington D.C.

Marsh is a former Broadway performer and beauty queen who was the Relationship Consultant for LA WEEKLY, then the nation’s top alternative newsweekly.  The author of two traditionally published non-fiction books, The Hillary Effect and The Sexual Education of a Beauty Queen, Taylor turns to contemporary action romance with her debut novel, Below the Beltway.

“I spent 10 years in the dating, sex and relationship worlds. Utilizing all that I learned from the hundreds of women and men with whom I spoke and worked was a challenge but the end result, Below the Beltway, is an opening salvo on the conversation I want to have with readers in The Beltway Series.”

Taylor was profiled in The Washington Post and The New Republic for her coverage of Hillary Clinton during the 2008 Democratic primary season. She has been a contributor to The Huffington Post since 2006 and has written for Washington, D.C.’s The Hill, as well as for U.S. News & World Report and for Zócalo Public Square in Los Angeles, among others. A seasoned entertainer, communicator and speaker, Taylor has also been interviewed by The Los Angeles Times, Al Jazeera Media Network, The New York Times, BBC, CNN, MSNBC, and C-SPAN’s Washington Journal, among other outlets.

Some of my highlights

Everything begins with meditation and clearing my mind, getting to that place where the noise doesn’t enter. What rises in the silence is what I pay attention to when I write, which usually begins on the web, my laboratory since 1996.
Jerry Herman cast me in “The Grand Tour“ in my very first Broadway audition, making a childhood dream a reality. I didn’t even have an apartment in the city at the time.
My latest book, my fourth. 
Devouring interviews with fiction writers in “The Paris Review.”
