Taylor Before and After
In journal entries alternating between two timelines—before and after a tragic accident—Jennie Englund’s heartfelt coming-of-age story, Taylor Before and After follows the year that changes one girl’s life forever.
Jennie Englund was born in San Francisco, California. Leaving the amazing citrus behind, she has spent the last 25 years in Oregon, teaching writing. As the oldest of 8 siblings, she thinks and writes often about families. A twice National Endowment for the Humanities Fellow, Jennie has studied Southeast Asian and Middle Eastern cultures. She has trained fire fighters, coached a Varsity Boys’ basketball team, and has two cats. Though she believes kindness is more important than anything, she does love crafting a complicated villain.
