Sara Taylor

Sara Taylor is herself a socially anxious product of rural Virginia and the homeschooling movement. She traded her health for a BFA from Randolph College, and her sanity for an MA in Prose Fiction from the University of East Anglia. Following the MA her supervisor refused to let her leave, so she remains at the UEA to chip away at a double-focus PhD in censorship and fiction. She spends an unprecedented amount of time on delayed trains between Norwich and her husband's house in Reading, and tends to get lost, rained on, and chased by cows with unsettling frequency.

Sara Taylor recommends
Home (2023)
Cailean Steed
"Really entertaining and pacy and fun to read, while still playing in that serious emotional territory."
A Hundred Million Years and a Day (2020)
Jean-Baptiste Andrea
"Every line is golden. It’s impossible to describe it without selling it short. It is a small, perfect thing, beautiful and devastating."
Golden Child (2019)
Claire Adam
"The characters in Golden Child are so completely real that I keep forgetting that their home is the page; they seem to breathe and think on their own. This is a devastating, wonderful book, and I can't help but wait impatiently for whatever Claire Adam writes next."
