My guest today retired from a forty-year career in marketing and is now living her life as an award-winning author in Shelton, Connecticut. She published her first romantic comedy, What’s Not Said, in 2020. The sequel, What’s Not True, followed less than a year later. The trilogy will be complete when What’s Not Lost publishes in early 2023. Financial services marketer, copywriter, editor, novelist, and author are all words to describe her. But being called Mimi by her granddaughter is what brings her the most joy these days. In her spare time, Valerie is a book reviewer with BookTrib.com; and a member of Westport Writers’ Workshop, Independent Book Publishers Association, and the Women’s Fiction Writers Association. And she enjoys practicing tai chi and being an expert sports spectator. Welcome to Authors Over 50, Valerie Taylor.
