Taylor hails from Down Under. As an only child on a sheep station in the Outback, Taylor spent her lonely childhood with her only friends, books. She grew up loving books and the stories they contained. At first, she thought she wanted to be an author, but found she really didn’t have the talent for writing and would much prefer to read the stories other authors created. She fell into reviewing quite by accident when a friend who ran a review blog asked her opinion on a book they had both read. Her friend was so impressed with Taylor’s review that she published it on her blog. Taylor still reviews books for her friend’s blog as well as others where she also does guest reviews, as well as reviewing for several national newspapers. In addition to reviewing books, Taylor is a gourmet cook. She lives in Sidney and regularly reviews new restaurants for magazines under her married name.
