Raised by traditional people in a modern world, Mindy Tarquini is a second-generation Italian American who grew up believing that dreams are prophecy, the devil steals lost objects, and an awkward glance can invite the evil eye. She is an assistant editor with the Lascaux Review and a member of the Perley Station Writers? Colony, as well as the author of the novel Hindsight. A native Philadelphian, Tarquini resides in Phoenix with her husband. She loves writing heroines with special powers. Alas, she has none herself.
