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 13, 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. 


Cast of Characters Includes My First-Ever Short Story

I’m a proud member of Novelists Inc., the only writers organization devoted exclusively to the needs of multi-published novelists. In April, 2012, we published our first-ever fiction anthology, Cast of Characters. More than a year in development, Cast of Characters is a huge volume of original fiction. Nearly five hundred pages long, it includes twenty-eight original stories, eleven of which are from New York Times bestselling authors. You can read more about it here.

I'm thrilled that my first-ever short story, Down Under, is included in the anthology, and I can't wait to hear what you think about it.
