Taj McCoy is a women’s fiction and romantic comedy writer who graduated with a Business Law degree from Cal State Northridge and Juris Doctor degree from Southwestern Law School. As a child, Taj found her love of writing after having two pieces published in elementary school. Even while she studied law, Taj carved out time to attempt her first novels. After graduating from law school, Taj pursued a career in higher education administration, working at universities across the country, eventually returning to her hometown of Oakland, California.
Taj is committed to writing stories championing black and biracial women of color, plus-sized characters, and main characters with a strong sense of sisterhood and familial bonds. When she’s not writing, she may be on Twitter boosting other marginalized writers, people watching for research, trying to zen out in yoga, sharing recipes on her website, or cooking private supper club meals for close friends.
