John Tintera

John Tintera is sales & marketing director for Osprey Publishing in New York. After graduating from New York University in 1993, he pursued a career in book publishing, working as a sales assistant at Avon Books. In 1996 he left the world of romance novels to explore a call to the Catholic priesthood. He returned to the book business in 1997, with a new found appreciation for the priestly vocation, though realizing it was not for him. In 1999 he began a three year stint as sales manager for Crossroad Publishing, an independent Catholic press. In addition to playing rhythm guitar in a rehearsal-only rock band, he reviews books for Publisher's Weekly. He lives with his wife Sally Reier and their cat Peanut Butter in New Jersey.
