C.L. Taylor


The Sunday Times bestselling author, C.L. Taylor, lives in Bristol in the UK with her partner and young son. Born in Worcester, she studied for a degree in Psychology at the University of Northumbria, Newcastle. She is a member of the Crime Writers Association and a Graduate Member (MBPsS) of the British Psychological Society.


She started writing fiction in 2005 and her short stories have won several awards and been published by a variety of women’s magazines.  Her international award-winning romantic comedies, Heaven Can Wait and Home For Christmas were published by Orion in the UK and translated into 14 different languages.


C.L. Taylor’s latest three novels, THE ACCIDENT, THE LIE and THE MISSING (HarperCollins), have been dark psychological suspense. All three were Sunday Times Bestsellers and, combined, have sold over a million copies. Taylor’s fourth psychological thriller, THE ESCAPE, was published in March 2017 and was a No. 2 Sunday Times bestseller.


Her debut YA novel, THE TREATMENT, will be published later this year by HarperCollins / HQ.

‘Absorbing and disturbing. C.L. Taylor is an author who always keeps me guessing.’
