Mindy Tarquini

Sponsored by Nancy Pitt

Mindy Tarquini grew up convinced that there are other worlds just one giant step to the left of where she's standing. Author of the critically-acclaimed and award-winning novels "Hindsight" and "The Infinite Now," Tarquini's most recent novel is "Deepest Blue," described by Publisher's Weekly as "a haunting, lyrical fantasy dealing with love, loss, and political turmoil." Her writing has appeared in Writer's Digest, BookPage, Hypable and other venues. An associate editor on the Lascaux Review and a member of the Perley Station Writers Colony, Tarquini is a second-generation Italian American who believes words have power. She plies hers to the best of her ability from an enchanted tower a giant step left in the great Southwest.
