A message to everyone who likes reading this page!

I'm very well aware that I have neglected this site of late - I can't believe how old some of the pages are.  I can only apologise to everyone.  I wrote the pages originally in HTML code, but now I have my hands on a proper editor, and will be able to make the site look a lot better.  Give me time!  Watch this space for an improved appearance (hopefully) and updated information!

Hello Taylor Caldwell fans!

of POD
We in the Society are very proud of ourselves at the moment, for winning the above award! In the words of Tripod, who are the "hosts" of this site, "Congratulations! Your Tripod member page The Taylor Caldwell Appreciation Society ( has been chosen as the Best of Pod in the BookTalk Pod this week!
Best of Pod pages are the Pod pages that we're proud of - they are featured on the front page of the Pod for two weeks, a star is placed next to their URL on the Pod Publishers' Pages, and also may be included in the member spotlights on the front page of the Tripod site." So we are enjoying our moment of glory, as you can imagine!

 As you may have noticed from the row of buttons above, we have decided to do away with the Forum - as soon as I introduced the Message Board, that became so popular that people stopped using the Forum, so now there is just the Message Board - to use it, press the yellow button above.

 (I haven't had a lot of time recently to do much updating of this site, so you will doubtless find little anomalies as you go round the site - please bear with me, they will all get sorted out in the end!)

I started this site off by saying: "This site is the new launching pad of The Taylor Caldwell Appreciation Society. We're hoping that a home page will get people interested in the Society, and encourage lots of you to join and contribute information." Well, we've now come quite a long way - lots of people have looked at the site and have E-Mailed me and left guestbook messages, which is great - I'm really happy at all the interest out there!

But now - do we want a Society or don't we? Or do we just want a site? Please let me know what YOU think! (I am quite happy to run either.)

I've had a lot of mail concerning Taylor Caldwell's life and background - there's all sorts of assorted tales going around out there! All I have to go on is her autobiography "Growing Up Tough" - and that doesn't cover everything. So I'm thinking of including a page here about her life - would you like that? If so, please contribute - the more information I can gather, the more interesting we can make it. And if ANYONE knows of any members of Taylor Caldwell's family - then that would be absolutely great. (I wonder what they would think of this site!)

So if you've got any good ideas about any of the above - E-Mail me!

Lots of love to you all, and keep reading!

Questions and Mysteries...

Taylor Caldwell wrote a story called "Encounter By Candlelight" - does anyone know anything about this? I can't find any information anywhere!

And here's another - has anyone got any information on a book called "The Child from the Sea" - I've seen this quoted on two book sites (one of which was Amazon) but I can't find anything out about this either. (As Elizabeth Goudge also wrote a book with this title, I thought at first it was a mistake!)

And we have a MYSTERY on our hands! We need your help to solve it - for details, visit the Mystery page or click the "Mystery" button above.

Visit our Swaps & Wants page (or click the "Swaps" button above), where you can leave messages for other Taylor Caldwell fans, who are seeking or disposing of books.
Try this page for more help in locating secondhand books (or click the "Books" button above).

Our links have moved to a different page - I'm hoping to expand the list - follow the link to get to the new page, or click the "Links" button above and below.
