Welcome to the new Taylor Marsh website!

As you’ve likely noticed over the last year, the topics featured on this site now venture well beyond the political, which will always be a central theme, because it’s in my bones due to the time in which I grew up.  Even my new book, though it’s not political, deals with the politics of sex: the interaction between men and women and how we navigate the modern world of equality inside our most intimate space, where we lie down every night. Living in the Washington, D.C. beltway these past years, I’ve come to appreciate the need for engaging people on subjects that go beyond the political.  It helps communication and can lead us to lighter moments where conversation is possible. Treading into other interests could inspire us to find a different way to debate on contentious issues that have us yelling at each other.  Now as my third book makes it into the world, being an author is truly one of the most treasured adventures of my life, though it’s as grueling terrain as it is exciting.  This site has always been my creative laboratory and this latest incarnation, thanks to Lorie Miller and her amazing team at AgoraNet, honors the path I now find myself navigating. We’ll just have to see where we go from here.  Thanks for sticking around.  It means everything.
