Author's Bio

Harcourt published Lara Tupper's debut novel, A THOUSAND AND ONE NIGHTS, in 2007 and Untreed Reads has kindly kept it in print. (She has adapted 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 jazz and pop throughout the Berkshires. She taught writing at Rutgers University for nine years and now leads writing workshops at Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health and for the Berkshire Festival of Women Writers. A contributor to Kripalu's blog, she is currently at work on a memoir. She received her MFA from the Program for Writers at Warren Wilson College.
