Taylor Gillion is a growing author of sci-fi and fantasy novels such as the upcoming series The One Called Mignonette. She was born in Greenwood, South Carolina but grew up in a small historic town called Ninety-Six. She spent her younger years in the countryside growing up on a small family farm ‘out in the sticks’.
There wasn’t much to do given that the closest big city was an hour away, so an active and vivid imagination has always played a role in her life, whether it was in her writing or in her paintings and drawings. Creeks and backwoods were what she knew, but at the age of 19 she moved to Virginia Beach away from it all. Now living the beach life she spends her days with her three children.
Her creative side extends well past her love for writing. She enjoys her day job working as a dog groomer and spends her free time painting and drawing. Always the homebody, she would rather stay in watching a new hit anime with her family than a night out on the town.
A few of her favorite things include anime (Naruto being her forever top favorite), punk rock music, and spicy foods. Punk bands such as Too Close to Touch, I Prevail, and My Chemical Romance gave her inspiration through the chapters of The One Called Mignonette.
Her friends and family have described her as strong, stubborn, goofy, and down to earth.
