Skye Taylor – Inspired Mic Spotlight November 8, 2018


“Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body. But rather, to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming …. WOW what a ride.”  ― Mark Frost, The Match: The Day the Game of Golf Changed Forever

With this as her guiding mantra, Skye Taylor has done her best to answer the door and step boldly through it whenever adventure knocks. Along the way, she’s raised four kids, coached gymnastics, and dressed up in period costume to saunter down St George Street in historic St Augustine. She learned how to jump out of perfectly good airplanes and joined the Peace Corps in her 50s, and has so far traveled through 26 states (lived in 8) and 16 countries where she’s enjoyed such adventurous pursuits as hiking on glaciers in New Zealand, swimming with humpback whales and into underwater caves in the South Pacific, climbing volcanic mountains and lounging in hot springs fed by those volcanoes in Niua Fo’ou, Tonga. She’s explored 2000 year old ruins in Thailand and Vietnam and dozens of castles in Europe, and ridden in everything from Thai Tuktuks and elephants, helicopters and two seater airplanes, and kayaks and blue water sailboats. Her biggest problem now is the realization that her bucket list is so long she’ll surely run out of time to check everything off.

When she’s not off adventuring, Skye’s either walking the beach, trying to keep her to-be-read pile from taking over the house or busy writing her own novels. She is an award-winning author published in non-fiction, romance, mainstream and short stories. You can check out one of her short stories, Saving Just One, as well as essays about her life in the Peace Corps on her website at Her most recent release is Keeping His Promise (, the fifth book in her contemporary romance series, The Camerons of Tide’s Way ( . All her books are featured on her website and can be purchased through in print and Kindle and all other e-book platforms.

    • Hi Pat,

      The only current venue is Hidden Treasure Raw Bar and Grill in Flagler Beach on the third Thursday each month. This month The Inspired Mic will be on the 16th. Yes, I do need to update my site and bring it into a more current status. I’ll see if I can do that today… 🙂
