Author's Bio

Harcourt published Lara Tupper's debut novel, A THOUSAND AND ONE NIGHTS, in 2007. (She is adapting this book into a screenplay if you are reading this, Christopher Guest.) Her second novel, OFF ISLAND, is a fictional account of Paul Gauguin's messy marriage. A vocalist, Lara has crooned in a number of Middle Eastern and Asian cities (see debut novel, above) and performs throughout the Berkshires with Luke and Lara, a jazz-pop duo. She taught writing at Rutgers University for nine years and now leads writing workshops at Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health. A blog writer for Kripalu's THRIVE, she is currently at work on a memoir.
