Carolyn Tara O’Neil grew up in a tiny New York City apartment filled with thousands of books. Every Friday she went to the public library for even more reading material. She now lives in a slightly smaller NYC apartment with slightly fewer books, and still goes to the library every week.

In between then and now, Carolyn has lived in France, Spain, and Japan, and has dedicated her career to the education and rights of young people. She loves to travel, study languages, and spend endless hours discussing TV, books, great hiking trails, and how we can work together to build a more equal society.

Her debut novel, DAUGHTERS OF A DEAD EMPIRE, is set during the Russian Revolution and will be published in Fall 2021 by Roaring Brook Press (Macmillan

The Guest List by Lucy Foley
"A mystery that revolves around misogynists and melodramatic women, this one was clearly published under some haste.

It’s a real shame, especially after a belter like The Hunting Party (would recommend). The Guest List is an atmospheric And Then There " Read more of this review »

“There are occasions when a woman, no matter how weak and impotent in character she may be in comparison with a man, will yet suddenly become not only harder than any man, but even harder than anything and everything in the world.”
Nikolai Gogol, Dead Souls

“There’s nothing white folks hate more than realizing they accidentally treated a Negro like a person.”
Justina Ireland, Dread Nation

“You think your pain and your heartbreak are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read. It was books that taught me that the things that tormented me most were the very things that connected me with all the people who were alive, who had ever been alive.”
James Baldwin

“The librarian chuckled. “I suppose there are rather a lot of orphan stories out there.” “Why do grown-ups write so many of them?” William asked. “I hadn’t really thought about it,” Mrs. Müller confessed. “Perhaps they think children fancy the notion of living on their own, without adults to tell them what to do. It’s quite daft, if you think about it, isn’t it?”
Kate Albus, A Place to Hang the Moon

“Besides which, I really ought to send her a book instead. Though she’s not much of a reader.” She paused. “Evidence as to her character.”
