Kari Luna has seen the world from behind a Hammond organ, through the lens of a commercial camera, and from the top of a Swiss chalet. She has been, and still is, a professional copywriter, creative director, musician, yoga teacher, whimsicologist and now, teen novelist. Her savvy, “never say die” style of persistence comes from years of playing in garage bands, owning her own freelance business and getting used to the hustle. Her debut novel, , comes out July 11th on Philomel/Penguin. She’s currently working – with punk rock persistence and great heart – on another one. Dive into her world at www.kariluna.com.
