Taylor McGrath is a local born and raised author from Albany New York. She is a graduate from the Albany Medical College Physician Assistant program and currently works as a full-time Physician Assistant. Taylor has two beautiful children Olivia and Parker. She was inspired to start writing children’s books after her second child was born. Her son Parker, was a preemie and had to spend some time in the NICU. On the days she couldn’t even hold him, the nurses encouraged her to read to him. This was the inspiration for “Always By Your Side “. Taylor wanted other parents to know they were not alone in this process and to give them a special book for them to have for their babies during their NICU days and as a keepsake to bring home. Taylor’s second book was inspired by her daughter’s beautiful red hair. She wanted to show both the world and her daughter how special it is and to help kids learn as they read that their differences make them special!
