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.

TALIA CARNER PRESS RELEASE
...
Author Talia Carner, who investigated foreign orphanages and adoptions sees Madonna's story as a call to action.
"The alternative to baby David's life would have been death," says author Talia Carner following Oprah's October 25th interview of Madonna. "Being familiar with the appalling conditions in orphanages in China, I had no doubt that in Africa, where the entire population is impoverished and at high health risk, these institutions are far worse. Ms. Carner is also quick to defend Madonna against those accusing her of using the adoption of a baby as a publicity stunt. "Any parent-including the journalists that have leveled such irresponsible charges at the celebrity-knows that parenting is the most serious emotional and physical commitment anyone can make, one you can never reverse. No one, especially a performer with a hectic life filled with artistic creativity and extensive travel, would make such a commitment without giving it their all."
Carner speaks from knowledge, having researched extensively both the music industry and infanticide for her just released novel.
...
Against the winds of negative publicity, Ms. Carner has been defending Madonna, praising the star's charitable activities. "Instead of attacking her," Carner says, "Americans should be flocking to foreign adoption agencies to save babies by opening their homes and their hearts to them. We need to follow Madonna's example to adopt children who, most likely, will not live past the age of five."
On the other hand, Carner, who had worked with African women's groups, points out the difference between African and Chinese orphanages, where infant mortality can reach 80%.
...
To the question whether Madonna has read Talia Carner's novel, Mr. Walters responded that he didn't know, but hoped to get a copy into the diva's hands by way of thanking her for her courageous stance on an issue by setting an example.
