Taylor Kattukaran is a writer, mother of two (3.5 and 2), and MFA student at The New School, graduating this spring. Prior to graduate school, Taylor worked for ten years across publishing and technology – first at Pearson building STEM content and online testing platforms for students, and finally at Google / YouTube in executive support and project management. She’s originally from the state of Georgia and has deep familial roots in the swamp near the Florida border, but after stints in Boston and San Francisco, she’s now a New Yorker at heart. Taylor is working on two novels: a magical realism novel exploring religion and a crime fiction novel centered around a would-be abortion, both set in the South. There’s always an alligator in her stories.
