About Goldie Taylor

Dear Patreon Partners,

I am an independent journalist and am currently developing a podcast-documentary project focused on juvenile mass incarceration and the school-to-prison pipeline. In partnership with Crooked Media, the story is told through the lens of a 13-year-old boy who-- at under 5 feet tall and less than 100 pounds-- was convicted as an adult and sent to one of the most notorious prisons in the country.  

Today, I am editor-at-large for the Daily Beast-- a non-salaried contributor's position-- where I focus on social justice and intersectional politics. Additionally, I am currently working on a memoir project and the television adaptation of my third novel. 

Ultimately, I hope to garner enough subscriptions to supplement my work as a full-time writer and investigative journalist. I would be honored if you joined me on this road.

All the best,
Goldie Taylor


About Goldie Taylor

Goldie Taylor is editor-at-large at The Daily Beast. She is, perhaps, known for her work as a cable news contributor and political analyst at CNN and NBC News. 

As a news analyst, correspondent and opinion writer, Taylor has been featured on NBC News, MSNBC, CNN and HLN. She has also been a guest on programs such as HBO’s Real Time with BillMaher, The Dr. Phil Show, The Steve Harvey Show, and Good Morning America. She appeared in “Light Skinned Girls,” a documentary released by the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) and “Eyes on the Prize: Then and Now” on PBS.

Then too, Taylor has been a frequent guest on a full host of local and national radio shows, including NPR’s AllThings Considered, and has been regularly published in print and digital publications. In recent years, she has written dozens of guest op-ed columns for Salon, Playboy,  Huffington Post, and Essence among others.

The author of In My Father’s House and The January Girl, after a 10-year hiatus, her third novel--Paper Gods-- was released in October 2018 by St. Martin’s Press and has been optioned as a television series. 

A self-professed connoisseur of mediocre whiskey and a somewhat less than devoted runner, Taylor is wholly convinced that God has a sense of humor.
