Kim R. Taylor
I am the author of the YA novels CISSY FUNK and BOWERY GIRL. Cissy Funk (HarperCollins) was honored with a 2002 Willa Cather Award for Best Young Adult Novel. Bowery Girl (Viking) was listed as a Best Reads for Teens by the New York Public Library. I recently completed a literary novel, THE BAY and am now researching and working on a novel about a maid accused of murder in 1855 New Hampshire that explores class and race and women’s rights issues in the years leading to the Civil War.
I hold a B.A. in Drama from University of California, Irvine, and a M.A. in Special Education, from California State University, Los Angeles. I facilitate workshops through PDXWriters.
