Author Spotlight Saturday: Taylor Jenkins Reid

According to her website, Taylor is the author of The Seven Husbands of Evelyn HugoOne True LovesMaybe in Another LifeAfter I Do, and Forever, Interrupted. Her novels have been Indie Next Picks, chosen by Book of the Month, and featured in People, US Weekly, Entertainment Weekly, Good Morning America, and more. Her newest novel, Daisy Jones and the Six, will be out March 5th. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband Alex and their daughter.

Taylor started her career in California while working in casting. Although it was what she had always wanted to do she found it lacking. Then one day her idol, Jennifer Aniston, came into her office. She was so excited about her interaction that she sent an email to everyone she knew giving a detailed account of every moment of the day. While her friends and family may have been impressed by her meeting a celebrity they were more impressed/amused by her impassioned retelling. After many responded with “you should be a writer” she decided to cultivate her craft, she had always been a writer, and began writing in earnest. The rest, as they say, is history.

I first met Taylor in 2017 at BookExpo, shortly after the release of The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo. I felt an immediate kinship with her which only added to how much I already liked her as an author. There’s nothing scarier than meeting your favorite author and potentially not liking them but thankfully that wasn’t the case here. I’ve kept in contact with her these past couple of years and always look forward to anything she puts out. If you are not familiar with her writing I highly suggest checking out Evidence of the Affair. It’s a short story that absolutely blew my mind and heart to smithereens.
