Talia Carner worked for Redbook magazine before becoming the publisher of Savvy Woman magazine. A former adjunct professor at Long Island University School of Management and a founder of her own marketing consulting firm to Fortune 500 companies, she was also a counselor and lecturer for the Small Business Administration, a member of United States Information Agency missions to Russia, and a participant at the 1995 International Women's Conference in Beijing.
Ms. Carner's first novel, PUPPET CHILD, was listed in “The Top 10 Favorite First Novels 2002” by BookBrowse.com and launched a nationwide legislation that became the platform for two 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 new novel, JERUSALEM MAIDEN, to be published in June 2011 by HarperCollins, gives Carner a new platform to speak about the plight of women in oppressive societies.
Carner’s 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). Her short stories were published in literary magazines such as Midstream, Lynx Eye, River Sedge, Moxie, Lilith, Rosebud, Confrontation and North Atlantic Review. An excerpt from JERUSALEM MAIDEN is now short-listed as a finalist for Eric Hoffer Short Prose Award and will appear in The Best New Writing 2011 as “Editor’s Choice Award.”
Ms. Carner is a board member of HBI, a research center for Jewish women's studies at Brandeis University, and an honorary board member of several domestic violence and child abuse intervention organizations. Her addictions include chocolate, ballet, hats—and social justice.
Talia Carner and her husband Ron have 4 grown children and reside in Manhattan and Bridgehampton, NY.
