A FULL BIO
Before turning to fiction writing, Talia Carner worked for Redbook magazine and served as the publisher of Savvy Woman magazine. An adjunct professor of marketing at Long Island University and a marketing consultant to Fortune 500 companies, she was a volunteer counselor and lecturer for the Small Business Administration and a member of United States Information Agency missions to Russia, teaching women entrepreneurial skills. Carner's activities in women's organizations led to her participation at the 1995 International Women's Conference in Beijing, where she learned of the atrocities of The Dying Rooms-the Chinese orphanages where the documented death rate was 80%-and about the U.S.'s courts betrayal of molested children. Helping African women to develop a campaign against clitoridectomy, she was exposed to the plight of women in societies that subjected millions of girls to this brutal mutilation. Her education about violence against women continued when she assisted Indian women in a campaign to end the burning of brides over dowry disputes. She also researched the lives of women in religious oppressive societies. A sought-after keynote lecturer at renowned organizations, Carner speaks on both universal and culture-specific issues facing today's women across the globe.
Those issues are crystallized in Carner's upcoming novel, HOTEL MOSCOW, (HarperCollins, summer 2015,) an eye-opening portrait of post-communist Russia and a profound exploration of faith, family, and heritage.
In the early 1980s, while at Redbook magazine, Carner was the first to define the characteristics of female baby-boomers as having a later marriage-age and being more educated, career-oriented, and health- and civic-conscious than their older counterparts. While the publisher of Savvy Woman magazine-then one of only four females to head a major American magazine-she was the first to document the demographics of female business owners. Launching her own marketing consulting firm to Fortune 500 companies, Carner commissioned independent research and challenged both public perceptions and the U.S. government's definition of entrepreneurship, a debate that ultimately established the White House Oversight Committee and brought changes to the way the Office of Labor Statistics gathered and analyzed data about husband-wife business ownership.

A 7th generation Sabra born in Tel Aviv, Israel, Ms. Carner served in the Israel Defense Force (IDF.) She received a B.A. degree from Hebrew University in Jerusalem in Psychology and Sociology and a Master's degree in Economics from the State University of New York at Stony Brook.

Redding Author, human rights advocate coming to library

Ms. Carner's involvement with women's organizations led to her participation at the 1995 International Women's conference in Beijing, where she learned of the atrocities of the Dying Rooms, the Chinese orphanages where the documented death rate was 80%. Ms. Carner's research for China Doll included interviewing offices of the U.S. National Security Administration, State Department, CIA, Chinese female university professors, aging peasants and budding entrepreneurs. She learned how, generation after generation, due to either starvation, the social experiments of the cultural revolution, or the current one-child policy, women have been losing their baby girls through coercion, prejudice, neglect, and outright murder.
Ms. Carner addressed the U.N. Committee on the Status of Women on the subject of infanticide in February 2007. "The issue of China's infanticide will not go away in the near future," Ms. Carner said. "As it forges ahead with full steam, the Chinese government admits that it cannot 'waste' resources on the weakest among its citizens. Nor is it within its tradition to cater to individuals' needs. But then, in the juxtaposition of American corporations' operations in cynical China, our Western values are eroded and compromised."
Ms. Carner's first novel, Puppet Child, was listed in The Top 10 Favorite First Novels 2002 and won her an Outstanding Author Award. The book initiated The Protective Parent Reform Act, a law now passed or under consideration in more than a dozen states. Ms. Carner is hailed as one with "the power to bring change in society."
Before becoming a fiction writer, Talia Carner was the publisher of Savvy Woman magazine and a marketing consultant to Fortune 500 companies. A former adjunct professor at Long Island University and a lecturer for the Small Business Administration, she was as member of United States Information Agency missions to Russia.
A seventh generation Sabra born in Tel Aviv, Israel, Ms. Carner served in the 1967 Six Day War before coming to the United States in 1974. She received a bachelor's degree from Hebrew University in Jerusalem in psychology and sociology and a master's degree in economics from the State University of New York at Stony Brook. Ms. Carner and her husband, Ron, have four grown children. The couple lives in Bridgehampton, N.Y., and Manhattan.

Positioning this fact upfront, Talia Carner ensures that her story, compelling as a popular tale of intrigue, suspense, and romance, signals its main interest: exposing the indifference and incompetence of those who should protect victims.

Closed Files
During the China visit, listening to delegates talk about domestic violence, she had an epiphany.A professor from the University of Chicago, who had been running seminars for the legal profession, talked about judges who put sexually abused children back with those who were abusing them."It hit me then," says Carner, "judges can listen to nonsense."
At that moment, the sympathetic partisan became a passionate advocate and an active member of various women's civic, political, and professional organizations, particularly those centered on organizations fighting domestic violence.Then in 1997, shortly after she and her family bought a summer home in Bridgehampton, she began to write.
Puppet Child is not Carner's first publication -- personal essays and short stories have appeared in various newspapers and literary magazines -- but it is one that clearly claimed her heart as well as head.It has the feel of a well-researched book, for good reason.In pursuing her subject, she made repeated visits to Family Court in New York, where she was somehow able to gain access to closed files.She also spent many hours talking to mothers of abused children by way of a special 800 number and a web site.
