About the Author
Taylor Walding took inspiration from various death experiences in life in combination with the HBO series Six Feet Under to begin mortuary school in 2005. Just before graduating in 2011, Taylor took an internship at University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in their department that performed anatomical embalming. After attaining dual Texas funeral director & embalmer licensure at Restland Funeral Home in Dallas late 2013, Taylor moved to California & returned, married to a fellow mortician, to Texas by 2018, where UTSW needed a full-time anatomical embalmer. Taylor worked there until just before the most recent pandemic, where family needed assistance & support and provided a rural farmstead for Taylor & his spouse to grow their own vegetation. Summer 2023, Taylor came back to Restland fully licensed as a night embalmer throughout 2024, healing & serving families in their darkest times of need. A non-binary person, they enjoy spending time with their spouse and family, scything their farmland, feeding their chickens, and playing music in a variety of performing artists between Texas and California.
