I am the author of the novel GOOD ON PAPER (coming out from Melville House in January 2016), and the novel A HIGHLY UNLIKELY SCENARIO, OR A NEETSA PIZZA EMPLOYEE'S GUIDE TO SAVING THE WORLD (Melville House 2014).

I live in New York, city of my heart, in the writerly borough of Brooklyn, but have at various points made my home in most U.S. states between Virginia and Vermont. In addition to writing fiction, I freelance as a writer for nonprofits that work in developing countries. I’ve worked everywhere from Azerbaijan to Zimbabwe (most recently in Laos, Nigeria, and Senegal). I spent much of my adolescence in Rome, and as a young one, wandered the world--working on food festivals in Melbourne, Australia, and European jazz festivals in France

Kirkus (STARRED REVIEW): "... Cantor clearly loves her characters, and she shows true mastery of their inner lives. Between endearingly wonky riffs about translation, she offers full access to Shira’s roller coaster of emotions, the collisions of her past and prese... Read more of this blog post »
