Her mother is named Mindy Jenkins.


Fresh off from college, Taylor did not know what she wanted to do. She had some vague ideas and had a tough time, "pinning it down." She went for her first job as a casting assistant in movies, which lasted for three years. Later, she took a desk job at a studio for a few years, again relocating to the tech industry (entertainment company).

In her spare time, she would write books. She knew right away that she loved the process but was not sure if she could make a living from it. So, she went for a job at high school and remained there a little over a year.

During the time, she sold her first book. This made her confident that she could sustain herself as a full-timer. And, so embarked on a new career, since 2012.
