Meet the 2016 Organizers: Charlotte Taylor, Elementary and Middle Grade Speculative Fiction Chair

Charlotte Taylor has been fan of fantasy since she was a toddler, and spent her childhood rejecting her sisters’ importunings to come play in favor of peaceful reading. She still spends as much time as possible reading (mostly middle grade speculative fiction, but other genres too, because she wants to read All the Things), but she is hampered her day job as a professional archaeologist, her two boys (who have yet to say, “Mama, you just sit there and read while we put the laundry away”), serving as president of her local library’s Friends group, and trying to keep up with the many needs of her old house. She turned to blogging at Charlotte’s Library in February 2007 to fill in her spare time (sarcasm) and to have something to show for all the reading, and now can also be found writing for Barnes & Noble’s blog.
