Taylor listens as she speaks, a skill that allows a higher voice to flow into her writing.

Dustin Bealle Smith, author of Key Grip:  A Memoir of Endless Consequences

In The Press


I am a Third Culture Kid. My childhood and adolescent years were split among the diverse backdrops of Canada, Haiti, and England. Today, I live in Southern Ontario with my TCK husband, Dwayne, and our two kids.

I am a PhD student, writer, a professor of writing, a wife, mother, and advocate for the marginalized and outsider. I write about writing and identity through the eyes of a cultural outsider.
