Background Information

Talia Carner was the publisher of Savvy Woman magazine. A former adjunct professor at Long Island University School of Management and a marketing consultant to Fortune 500 companies, she was also a volunteer counselor and lecturer for the Small Business Administration and a member of United States Information Agency (USIA) missions to Russia. She participated at the 1995 International Women's Conference in Beijing, where she sat on economic panels and helped develop political campaigns for Indian and African women. Ms. Carner's first novel, PUPPET CHILD, was listed in “The Top 10 Favorite First Novels 2002” and launched a nationwide legislation (The Protective Parent Reform Act) that became the platform for two State Senatorial candidates. CHINA DOLL made Amazon’s bestsellers list and served as the platform for Ms. Carner's presentation at the U.N. in 2007 about infanticide in China—the first ever in U.N. history. Her latest published novel, JERUSALEM MAIDEN, (HarperCollins, 2011,) won the Forward National Literature Award in the “historical fiction” category. In June 2015, HarperCollins will release Carner's newest novel, HOTEL MOSCOW, which an eye-opening portrait of post-communist Russia and a profound exploration of faith, family, and heritage.

Over 50 of Carner’s award-winning short stories, articles and personal essays have appeared in anthologies, literary magazines and leading websites.
