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

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’ (Weathervane Press, 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 also released by Weathervane in 2014.

Recently, Megan’s stories have been shortlisted for 2017’s Brighton Prize and The Walter Swan Short Story Prize 2017-18. TSS Publishing released her ‘Waiting for the Rat’ as a chapbook single after choosing her as one of their ‘Selected Writers 2017-18’.  More short stories are featured in or forthcoming from several other publications including Hic Dragones’ ‘Into the Woods’, Neon and Dark Lane’s 6th and 7th Anthologies.

Megan lives in Nottingham, where she provides Creative Writing workshops and courses, and is also busy finishing her fourth novel.
