I Don't Wanna Be Pink

How a single, 39-year-old refused to

let breast cancer and its fervent

culture define her

"An immensely relatable, fresh, vigorous voice that bursts off the page with energy and brio. It sounds odd to say that one enjoyed reading a memoir about a battle against breast cancer, but Taylor writes with such epic candor and hilarious turn of phrase that there's no other word for it." --The BookLife Prize

I'm a professional copywriter, humorist and author of the memoir, I Don't Wanna Be Pink. My work has been published in Austin Woman magazine and on Fresh Yarn, and recognized by Pentawards, HOW, and Graphic Design USA. I have written and performed with Austin's Gag Reflex sketch comedy group, and was once hailed a "freak" by Wayne Brady after successfully mimicking the sound of wind as a volunteer in one of his Las Vegas shows. I reside in the Pacific Northwest surrounded by loving friends, gifted creatives, and a commotion of fur called Bridget.
