PortiaLily: About the Author and How to Contact Her

PortiaLily Taylor

There’s nothing like a good adventure! After years of writing nonfiction as an attorney and educator, I am beginning a new adventure — one that will include stories filled with angels, pirates, and life in far-away places and not so far-away times.

I hope you — and the middle grade readers you love — will join me on this adventure.

words from two authors about the writing journey

Writing is perhaps the greatest of human inventions, binding together people, citizens of distant epochs, who never knew one another. Books break the shackles of time–proof that humans can work magic.”

― Carl Sagan

“We write for the same reason that we walk, talk, climb mountains or swim the oceans – because we can. We have some impulse within us that makes us want to explain ourselves to other human beings.”

– Maya Angelou
