Caroline Taggart

Caroline Taggart is an English author and an editor of popular non-fiction. Her debut book, I Used To Know That (2008), hit the Sunday Times bestseller lists, sold over 250,000 copies, and was translated into Dutch, German, and Spanish.

Caroline Taggart was born in London to Scottish parents, spent most of her childhood in New Zealand, and went to university in Sheffield.

She worked in publishing as a freelance editor for thirty years, focusing on adult non-fiction, before being asked by Michael O'Mara Books to write I Used to Know That, which became a Sunday Times bestseller. Following that, Taggart was co-author of My Grammar and I and wrote many other books about words and English usage.

Now she has had around 30 books published and continues editorial work.

"My two proudest boasts are: I edited the BBC’s Walking With Dinosaurs; I have worked with Jonathan Scott of Big Cat Diary fame since his first venture into publishing in 1982 and have edited perhaps 20 of his books," says Taggart.

Caroline Taggart has appeared frequently on television and national and regional radio, talking about language, grammar, and various editorial stuff.
