About the Author
I grew up in lots of places as a part of a military family. And after graduating from the University of Maryland with a B.A., I landed a job as a civil rights investigator of race and gender discrimination. That work in the legal field led me to the University of Detroit Law School and then private law practice for thirty years. During my work as a lawyer, I got to help clients from all walks of life and I learned a lot about human strength, frailty... and hypocrisy.

Tituba's quest for revenge is compelling, and her narrative arc is well developed throughout the length of the novel. Readers will likely be pleased by Tamanini's treatment of her story. Samuel Parris is cruel and easy to root against, making for a more than valiant antagonist. BookLife Prize

The most recent book about Tituba, one of the key participants in the Salem witch trials, is Dave Tamanini's historical fiction work, Tituba, The Intentional Witch of Salem. This beautifully-written book re-imagines Tituba's life, portraying this important figure of American history as a slave woman who can do magic, with a motive to exact revenge after the loss of her child.
