Sara Taylor is a product of Virginia and the homeschooling movement. She traded her health for a BFA from Randolph College in Lynchburg, Virginia, and her sanity for an MA in Prose Fiction from the University of East Anglia in Norwich, England. In 2017 she completed the Ph.D. in Creative and Critical Writing at UEA with the submission of a thesis on extra-legal censorship and the U.S. education system. Besides writing fiction and occasional teaching, she spends her time getting lost, rained on, and chased by cows.
Her short fiction has been published electronically and in print in The Fiddlehead, The Fog Horn, and Granta, among other places. Her novels are published by William Heinemann in the UK, Hogarth in the US, and Bond Street Books in Canada.
