Who Am I?

Taylor Marsh is a thriller author who tinkers beyond the veil. Taylor’s 2019 thriller MAY BE FATAL was called one of the “Buzziest Books of February” by New In Books, broke through and hit Amazon’s top 100 paid in three categories.

Fair warning, Taylor’s women characters tread where safe spaces are hard to find. Her thrillers can be found near Sarah A. Denzil… Willow Rose…

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. Through my instincts, and meditation, I reach into the invisible world central to my work and my life. I’ve gone from Christian to Magician.
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.
Sometimes it’s the toughest leaps that thrill the most. For me, Sacred to Psychic #podcast is the most personal and visionary of my artistic career.
