Karen Tintori

Karen Tintori knew she'd be a writer from age twelve. As a child, she walked ten blocks to the public library, checked out as many books as she could carry between her interlocked fingers and her chin, read them quickly and returned for another stack.

Before she was thirteen, she'd read the entire children's section and bristled when the librarians would not permit her to borrow books from the adult section until she was of age. Patience was a lesson she'd begin to learn early--the librarians invited her, instead, to re-read the children's section.  

Is your book club reading one of Karen's books? Feel free to drop her a note to arrange a phone or Skype call to join your group's discussion. Karen loves hearing from her readers, enjoys traveling to meet them, and welcomes speaking invitations.

Italy Publishes The Book of Names

Mi molto rallegro di annunciare che Edizione Armenia in Italia pubblichera mio libro, The Book of Names in italiano!

For those who don't understand Italian -- I'm very happy to announce that Edizione Armenia has published The Book of Names in Italian.

Finally, after seven books, my first one published in Italian, to the great excitement of all my Italian relatives and friends who have been champing at the bit to read my books.

Good practice for me, too, to read The Book of Names in Italian!
