Who Am I?

Taylor Marsh writes smart, arousing psychological thrillers while deciphering world events.

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 turned to women’s fiction with The Beltway Series.

In her new novel, Olivia’s Turn, due out in late 2017, Taylor breaks into new territory. Psychological thrillers… with a strong female lead, which is the trademark of all of her fiction.

“I spent 10 years in the dating, sex and relationship worlds. The Beltway Series was the opening salvo on the conversation I want to have with women. My next novel, Olivia’s Turn, marks a new direction for my work. Can’t wait to share it.”

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.”
