About Taiya Collier
I'm Taiya, an author and influencer. I've dedicated myself to raising awareness for the lack of young adult authors in the genre. I'm passionate about writing captivating young adult romance fiction novels that explore the complexities of love and the journey to self-discovery. I'm excited to share my stories with you and hope they touch your heart in a special way.
With six books under my belt and three of them currently seeking publication, I am excited to share my stories with the world. As someone who grew up in Austin, I have always had a passion for writing and have been honing my craft throughout my academic career. Currently studying English at The University of Texas Austin, I believe that my background and education have helped me to write stories that are engaging, inspiring and thought-provoking.
Writing stories that leave a lasting Impression.
