Let’s learn more about the team:
Joni Di Placido
Joni works on Kobo Plus, as well as audio and OverDrive promotions. She studied Italian and Spanish language and literature and moved to Toronto from Edinburgh. She mostly reads lit fiction and non-fiction, and loves listening to podcasts.
Stephanie works on our Content Management team at KWL. She studied Book and Media Studies and English literature at the University of Toronto. She loves to discuss popular culture, true crime and the latest romance book she is reading. She is also a big reader of KWL authors, if you need a recommendation, she’s got you covered!
Shayna works on Promotions and Author Relations for KWL. She is an author of literary and young adult fiction, and studied English literature and creative writing. Shayna has worked at Kobo for nearly 12 years. She hates cheese and loves seriously depressing books that will one day be made into low-budget indie films which will bomb at the box office but become cult-classics.
Tara is responsible for the overall author experience on Kobo Writing Life, from optimizing current features to looking for new avenues of growth. Her aim is to make KWL the greatest and most user-friendly self-publishing platform available.
Tara has an MA in American Literature and Film from University College Cork, Ireland and has worked for KWL since inception. She reads a lot of non-fiction but balances this out with a healthy love of bad reality tv. She also likes listening to audiobooks while cycling around Toronto, but should probably pay more attention to the road.
