About the Author

Taylor Marsh is best known for being a “die hard Clintonite,” as the Washington Post described her in a 2008 profile, “For Clinton, a Following of ‘Marshans.’ ” The New Republic profile of Clinton in 2008, “The Hugh Hefner of Politics,” chronicles Marsh from her artistic career into politics. A contributor to the Huffington Post, as well as other sites, Marsh’s blog ( was on the front lines during the 2008 election season.

Marsh grew up in St. Louis, Missouri, where she was Miss Teenage St. Louis and was crowned Miss Missouri. She attended Stephens College in Columbia, Missouri, where she was born, graduating with a BFA. Next stop was Broadway, where Jerry Herman cast her after her very first audition. Marsh has produced her own one-woman show on JFK and her life growing up in the midst of the feminist revolution, and has done national television commercials.

In the early 1990s, Marsh worked at the alternative news source LA Weekly in the personal ad department as “relationship consultant,” with her column “What Do You Want?” dispensing relationship advice mixed with a little politics. In 1997, she jumped to become managing editor of one of the first outlets online to make money, a softcore site covered on the front page of the Wall Street JournalU.S. News & World Report, and USA Today. Marsh took her long-established new-media career to blogging during the Kerry campaign of 2004. But it was the 2008 election and Marsh’s fearless coverage of the campaign that catapulted her.

Marsh has been interviewed by the BBC, CNN, MSNBC, C-SPAN’s Washington Journal, Al Jazeera Arabic, and Al Jazeera English, among others, including radio from coast to coast. Marsh has been featured in the The Hill, the Washington Scene, National Journal’s Hotline On Call, the Los Angeles Times, the New York Times Online, and many other new-media and traditional news venues.

This is the author's Vision Quest.

The book is brutally honest. The author lays out her journey from entering beauty pageants for scholarship money, to her
time on the Broadway stage and musical theater, internet pioneer, to her current role as political commentator and author.
The author makes clear she would rather be respected than liked and in the process has achieved both. The Kindle
version contains a link to her web site [] with pictoral spread of her journey.
Inner beauty never fades, and in this case, outer beauty too. The book is a knockout

My advice run to the store or web and get this book. You will be glad you did

More About the Author

Taylor Marsh is an author and speaker living just outside Washington, D.C.

Marsh's foray into relationships all began when she became Relationship Consultant at the LA Weekly in 1992. When her trademarked column "What Do You Want?" moved to the web in 1996, Taylor Marsh became one of the first people writing about relationships, men, women and the politics of sex online. It was just the beginning.

In 2008, the Washington Post and then the New Republic featured Marsh in profiles during the height of the presidential election cycle, because her new-media site was a major Hillary hub. Her second book, "The Hillary Effect," chronicles Hillary Clinton's rise and first run for president.

Taylor has been interviewed by the BBC, CNN, MSNBC, C-SPAN's Washington Journal, Al Jazeera Arabic and Al Jazeera English, among others. She has been featured in The Hill and "The Washington Scene", Washington Journal's Hotline's On Call, the LA Times, and many other new media and national news venues. Taylor is a contributor for Huffington Post, and has written op-eds for The Hill, as well as U.S. News & World Report, and other news outlets.
