Meet the Organizers: Charlotte Taylor, Elementary and Middle Grade Speculative Fiction

Charlotte Taylor has been fan of fantasy since she started reading round about the age of two (Lowly Worm is still a favorite hero). When not reading (mostly middle grade speculative fiction, but other things too), she is a professional archaeologist, mother of two boys, president of her local library’s Friends group, and co-renovator with her husband (ethnomusicologist and Irish piper) of an old and very needy house. She turned to blogging, at Charlotte’s Library in February 2007 to fill in her spare time. In her eighth-grade yearbook she’s identified as the person “most likely to write a book in the style of JRR Tolkien,” but this hasn’t happened yet; all she’s published is archaeological non-fiction, mostly for other grown-up archaeologists.
