Taylor Sinett’s publishing career started with a drawing in her father’s office.

Sinett, a Sands Point resident and senior at Paul D. Schreiber High School, drew a weasel on an easel during camp one summer and gave it to her father. He hung it in his office, where it caught the eye of a client.

“A client came in and said ‘Your daughter should really write a book, that’s so cute,’” Sinett said. “So I did.” (Read more...)

New Hyde Park, NY – On Tuesday, Feb. 2, children’s book author and illustrator Taylor Sinett, 16, of Sands Point, read her latest book Jack on a Plaque (East End Press, 2016) to patients and presented a check for $2,500 from the early proceeds of book sales to Cohen Children’s Medical Center.

Jack on a Plaque is the story of a young yak named Jack, who learns to overcome the limitations of his physical disability with a positive attitude. During athletic competitions at school, Jack’s small hoof always slows him down and prevents him from winning. But Jack remains determined, and even though he is never able to be the fastest or the strongest, he is consistently the hardest working. He earns the Leader of the Yak Pack title for his perseverance.

The Patch

Taylor Sinett, a 15-year-old from Sands Point, was so impressed by how her cousin Casey dealt with her chronic illness that she was inspired to write a book.

While suffering from ulcerative colitis, a painful and even humiliating disease, Casey dealt with her condition while keeping a positive outlook on life. (Read more…)

The Schreiber Times

In 2013, freshman Taylor Sinett released her book Weasel on an Easel. Sinett’s story was inspired by a family member’s battle with Crohn’s disease. Sinett was exposed to the constant pain from which her cousin Casey Mintz suffered, and noticed that Mintz never failed to have a smile on her face despite the hardship. 

The idea for her story came from nothing but a small drawing of a weasel that she made at camp. When she gave this picture to her father, he hung it on the wall at his office and no one thought much of it. That was until one of her fa- ther’s patients, a publisher, saw the sketch on the wall and came up with an idea: to make that one illustration of a weasel into something great. Sinett took action, and turned her small piece of artwork into a story.
