Taylor Lambert


I’m Taylor Lambert. I am a journalist and writer, and I’ve done a fair amount of neat things under those titles. As a sports reporter, I’ve covered everything from high school basketball to international tournaments, as well as the NHL, CFL, CIS and WHL. Thus far in my career, I have been a columnist, court reporter, general news reporter, desker, photographer, freelancer, and investigative journalist for numerous Canadian newspapers and magazines. I’ve also written three books: Time of Growth, a novel; Leaving Moose Jaw, a travel memoir of India; and my latest book, Rising, a narrative look at the 2013 Alberta floods. I live in Calgary, though I often find excuses to travel elsewhere.
