Each week, an accomplished published author takes over the YEM Twitter account for Thursday’s Twitter Takeover. Each week, the YA author will answer questions, tell stories, and give advice on our social media. This week YA author Tay Marley will be taking over our Twitter account.
Tay Marley wears many hats: bibliophile, entrepreneur, wife, mother, and featured Wattpad author. Her whirlwind journey on Wattpad began in 2017 and led to one hundred thousand dedicated followers, a five-part series, and three stand-alone books, including her breakout story, The QB Bad Boy and Me, which have amassed over forty-one million reads. She resides in New Zealand with her husband. When she isn’t writing about confident women and their love interests, she’s teaching her three small children how to be the leads in their own epic tales.
Tay is the author of the most read book on wattpad in 2018, The QB Bad Boy and Me. The prequel to The QB Bad Boy and Me is called The Summer of ’98. It just hit shelves on July 21st 2020! Before the epic romance of The QB Bad Boy and Me, there was the story of Drayton’s Lahey’s parents, Leroy and Ellie, and the one summer that changed everything. It’s the year 1998 and seventeen-year-old Ellie is about to have the summer of her life with her new boyfriend, Leroy. Even though they are from two different worlds and two very different families, their love is one of a kind. But between troublesome brothers and strict parents, rowdy parties and epic concerts, Ellie and Leroy will discover that there is more in store for them that summer than they could have ever imagined.
