Jodi Taylor is the internationally bestselling author of the Chronicles of St Mary's series, the story of a bunch of disaster prone individuals who investigate major historical events in contemporary time. Do NOT call it time travel! She is also the author of the Time Police series - a St Mary's spinoff and gateway into the world of an all-powerful, international organisation who are NOTHING like St Mary's. Except, when they are.

Alongside these, Jodi is known for her gripping supernatural thrillers featuring Elizabeth Cage together with the enchanting Frogmorton Farm series - a fairy story for adults.

Born in Bristol and now living in Gloucester (facts both cities vigorously deny), she spent many years with her head somewhere else, much to t

In What Could Possibly Go Wrong, a character asks if confirming the crucifixion actually took place would be more or less catastrophic than proving it didn't. In my first book I had Dr Bairstow saying there are places to which they would not go - Jerusalem during certain periods, Mecca, Medina, Bethlehem and so on. The conversation was edited out in the interests of keeping the word count down, but it's a self-imposed rule I intend to abide by.

I'm also trying to minimise the risk of inadvertent paradox by not allowing them to jump back to any period less than one hundred years in the past, so as to minimise the risk of killing a grandparent. And also because I don't regard anything in the last hundred years or so as actual History. I always think if it's that recent then it's a memory, rather than History.

Sorry, I've bored on for rather longer than I intended. Hope this answers your questions.(less)

There's a short story coming along in the summer and another one at Christmas. I'm working on Book 8 at the moment which should be out around May/June of next year and I've also got an outline for Book 9, as well.
I have started a sequel to The Nothing Girl, but it's slow going because I have to keep putting it aside to pick up the St Mary's stories again. And I do have some ideas for another Regency romance. My problem is that there just aren't enough hours in the day!!
Hope this answers your query. Thanks for writing. Jodi.(less)

Hi. This is yet another shameful example of the Taylor failure to plan ahead. I actually had the idea for White Silence before St Mary's, but I wrote St Mary's first. I borrowed the clinic from White Silence because I never dreamed I'd write more tha See Full Answer

“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!”
