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 books, "Hindsight," "The Infinite Now" and "Deepest Blue," Tarquini’s writing has been featured in Writer’s Digest, BookPage, Hypable, Thrive Global and other venues. An oral storyteller, Ms. Tarquini currently serves as Mesa Public Library's Writer-in-Residence. She is also an associate editor with the Lascaux Review, a member of the Perley Station Writers Colony and 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.
