Tonja Taylor Author Bio

I have been writing and teaching over 35 years. (Really.) For testimonials on both, go here.

My writing career started when I was 9, when my fourth grade teacher assigned a poetry writing lesson, and then my enterprising mother suggested I send it to Grit magazine–who printed “Wild Mustangs” and sent me a dollar and a copy of the printed poem. I was hooked.

Since then, I have published over 350 articles (which means I have written many more than that and submitted them, but they didn’t all get published). I have also written about 20 books (actually, more than that, if you count the unfinished ones in my files! But many of those WILL be finished and published this year!) and published many of those, including The Adventures of Princess Pearl, P.O.W.E.R.* Girl! Book One! My latest, Your Holy Health, is available on Kindle right now.

My teaching career officially started at age 13, when my dear mom suggested I start teaching private piano lessons for cash (Great idea, Mom! She insists that I really started teaching when I was 8 and I taught my little brother (age 5) to read and swim, but he won’t admit it and I don’t remember it, so we’ll just start with 13, LOL. )

Since then, I have taught more subjects to more people in several states and online than I can remember (but they are all special). I would love to come to your state and share delightful, life-changing things with you and your kids!
