Hey, How'd You Become a Published Author and TV Writer at 23, Kara Taylor?
One determined young novelist's foray into TV writing- September 23, 2013
According to a slew of media reports detailing how the economic crisis has disproportionately affected millennials, most 20-somethings are unemployed or underemployed and bunking on their parents' sofa, eating Frosted Flakes for dinner and trying to figure out what to do with their lives. Except for Kara Taylor, that is.
At just 23, Taylor is riding high on the success of her debut novel, the young-adult thriller Prep School Confidential (published in July), and awaiting the spring 2014 release of its sequel. Oh, and she recently snagged writer and co-executive producer credits on The Revengers, a new TV pilot created by Rashida Jones and Will McCormack and ordered by the CW network.
The temptation to call Taylor an overnight success or credit her good fortune to a well-connected relative in the industry is understandable. But make no mistake, haters: Taylor's been hustling hard for years.
