Sandra Tayler is a writer, editor, and publisher with credits in over thirty different titles. She is a consistently successful crowdfunder, and has spent the last thirty years managing a household alongside several small businesses. Her latest work-in-progress, STRUCTURING LIFE TO SUPPORT CREATIVITY (crowdfunding in late Spring of 2024, click here to follow the project), is a non-fiction book meant to help writers, artists, and other creatives make more art with less burnout. Sandra lives in Orem with her husband, three cats, a minion, a cryptid, and a family of very demanding scrub jays who insist that Sandra’s only real job is to put peanuts on the deck rail.
