The book is exclusively available at Ye Olde Warwick Book Shoppe. Shop Locally is her mantra! Taylor explains, “this book is not about me, my life or who I am, rather it is all about sharing simple tasks and stories that will resonate  with the readers, as they acquire the knowledge to create a positive, passionate life.”  “This is the ultimate “comfort food” self-help book that only packs on pounds of positivity and passion.” Taylor also teaches meditation and is a Life Coach and hosts THE TAYLORED WORD every Friday at 10am.

Her daily tag line…”do a random act of kindness, it’s good for your heart and great for your soul.”
