Meet the Author

My first novel, PUPPET CHILD, was listed in The Top 10 Favorite First Novels 2002 (BookBrowse.com) and won me an Outstanding Author Award (BookReviewCafe.com). It launched The Protective Parent Reform Act, a law now passed or under consideration in two dozens states and the platform for two State Senatorial candidate. The research into my second novel, CHINA DOLL, and the issue of infanticide in China became the platform for my presentation at the U.N. in 2007 about infanticide in China—the first ever in U.N. history. I've since published through HarperCollins JERUSALEM MAIDEN (winner Forward National Literature Award) and am looking forward to my next novel with them, HOTEL MOSCOW (summer 2015.) The digital versions of these novels are available directly through your specific servers. My award-winning personal essays appeared in The New York Times, Chocolate For Women anthologies [Simon & Schuster], Cup of Comfort [Adams Media] and The Best Jewish Writing 2003 (John Wiley & Son). Several of my short stories entered Francis Ford Coppola’s Zoetrope’s Hall of Fame and were published in literary magazines such as Lynx Eye, River Sedge, Moxie, Lilith, Midstream, Rosebud, Confrontation and North Atlantic Review. My addictions include chocolate, ballet, Sudoku, hats—and social justice.

Author Talia Carner has done an excellent job weaving a multi-level tale with a strong human interest. The protagonist, a pop singer Nola Sands, is surprised when a baby is thrust into her arms. But she is more surprised to learn of the duplicity of her own entourage and then of the U.S. government which conspires with the Chinese government to block the adoption and to silence her. Add to this well-researched story the American corporate expansion into the Chinese market, the psychological nuances of a dysfunctional family, the haunting beauty of China, the state of Chinese orphanages--and Nola's own growth throughout the story-- and you have a winner.
