Welcome to ElizaLynnTaylor.com!
I'm Eliza Lynn Taylor author and freelance writer. Here you can read more about me and the works I have written. You can read more about me on my Biography page.
While I am a freelance writer and have articles both online and in print, my primary focus is on fiction. I truly enjoy writing a good story just to get lost in. As for the non-fiction genre, if I can research it - I will write about it However, because of my years of farming experience and growing up in and around a small town of hard working but not wealthy people,(think Mayberry - I'm not kidding) I am extremely well practiced at frugal living or getting by on less, and of course agriculture on a small scale.
Every month I put out a newsletter titled "Livin' in the Sticks". I call it "Livin' in the Sticks" because I have always lived out in the country, or the sticks as it has been referred. It contains links to articles that may have been published online or announcements to other printed stories and articles. I also include installments of short stories, or short-shorts, and/or product suggestions on occasion, as well as a letter to my readers. You can sign up for my free newsletter here.
I am super excited to tell you about my newest project now available for your Kindle e-reader device from Amazon.com.

AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM ELIZALYNNTAYLOR.COM-- For quite some time now e-mails have been sent out using boggus email addresses that have my site name associated with them, the spoofer even has the audacity to use a real address of mine (probably an accident of luck). I even get copies of them myself. I assure you I DO NOT send e-mail that is unsolicited. You have to sign up for my mailing list in order to get mail from me or you have to e-mail me with a question or comment that I may respond to. The only exceptions to this would be if I were to query a publisher with a proposal for an article or a book. I apologize for any inconvenience the boggus e-mails may cause even though I am not the one who is sending them.
