Who Am I?

Taylor Marsh writes buzzworthy thrillers. Psychological thrillers found on the shelves near Barbara Copperthwaite… Leslie Wolfe. Taylor’s badass women tread where safe spaces are hard to find.

Her latest thriller MAY BE FATAL was called one of “the buzziest books of February” by New In Books.

Marsh is an accomplished speaker and communicator. A former Broadway performer and beauty queen who was the Relationship Consultant for LA WEEKLY, then the nation’s top alternative newsweekly.  Wrote and produced her one-woman show, “Weeping for J.F.K.,” and dipped into talk radio. The author of two traditionally published non-fiction books, Taylor turned to fiction in 2016.

“I took big risks with my latest thriller. 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.’ It’s a puzzle, a riddle until the plot unfolds.” Taylor Marsh  

On Audible, the audiobook of Olivia’s Turn is a diabolical auditory ride. Read by Taylor Marsh and produced by Audiobook Theater, a division of MM Press.

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 interviewed by The New York TimesThe Los Angeles Time, New York Daily News, BBC, CNN, MSNBC, Al Jazeera Media Network, and C-SPAN’s Washington Journal, among other outlets. She was an early contributor to The Huffington Post (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.

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.
Reading, and producing my first audiobook for Olivia’s Turn, an intense psychological thriller.
Devouring interviews with fiction writers in “The Paris Review.”
