Taylor writes beautiful, intense prose, richly evocative and with a strong appeal to the senses that’s as vivid as it is tactile.
Nicholas Royle, Time Out



Megan Taylor’s first novel, ‘How We Were Lost’, a dark coming-of-age story, was published by Flame Books in 2007 after placing second in the 2006 Yeovil Prize. Her second, ‘The Dawning’, a domestic thriller set over the course of a single night, was published by Weathervane Press in 2010. Megan’s third novel, ‘The Lives of Ghosts'(2012), plays with ideas of inheritance and motherhood, and the haunting power of memories that refuse to be suppressed. Her first short story collection, ‘The Woman Under the Ground’, beautifully illustrated by Nikki Pinder, was released in 2014.

Megan currently lives in Nottingham, with her two children and is (of course) working on her next book.
