Marina Gottlieb Sarles: An island girl from the Bahamas, author Sarles not only speaks two languages (English and German) but grew up in two different worlds. As the daughter of German immigrants, who escaped Nazi Germany at the end of World War II by swimming across the Rhine River with guns firing at their backs, Sarles daydreamed about the Europe they had left behind. Sarles has been published in the Macmillan Caribbean anthology, Under the Perfume Tree, and ESPN produced a special feature based on her short stories. Her essay, “Auschwitz, Stutthof and Remembrance” was featured in Wild River Review. The Last Daughter of Prussia (April, 2012), a saga of love and war, is Sarles’s debut novel and has already been heralded as one of the most moving animal stories ever written.

After graduate school at the University of Connecticut, Nagy applied her academic expertise to a career in publishing, in which she worked for two of the world’s foremost publishers—-Princeton University Press and W.W. Norton. Nagy is working on a forthcoming collection of mythology/ memoir, called The Triple Goddess Trials.
