Hi, I’m Taiya.

Author, Blogger, and Influencer.

At the young age of ten, I began my mission to make the young adult fiction genre more inclusive and empowering - a goal that continues today! My skills as an author have blossomed with four written novels under my belt, and my first to be published coming out in 2023. By offering teens a platform where their voices can be celebrated, it's my dream to help open doors for future generations of creative storytellers.

As an eighteen-year-old author, one of my goals is to create age-inclusivity within the young adult genre by publishing stories that are authentic to the teen experience.
