Meet Our Team
Carol Fitzgerald is Founder and President of The Book Report Network (TBRN) — a group of Internet sites about books and authors that have become the gathering places for a large and devoted community of booklovers since 1996. Programming is organized by demographic at Bookreporter.com, Teenreads.com and Kidsreads.com and by special interest at ReadingGroupGuides.com. Website visitors can read reviews and author interviews, subscribe to newsletters and participate in interactive polls and contests. TBRN is recognized as an online leader of informed, contemporary book news, reviews, and author interviews.
TBRN launched our “Bookreporter Talks To” author interview series, hosted by Carol, in summer 2019. Our goal there is to deliver long-form author interviews to readers both on podcast and video. She has long been a sought-after interviewer for events and festivals, which made this a natural addition to TBRN programming.
The company’s Authors on the Web division provides Website Design and Development, Newsletter Design/Development and Consulting Services for authors and publishers. Prior to founding TBRN, Fitzgerald spent 17 years at Conde Nast where she developed broad-based marketing, promotion and publicity programs. Fitzgerald has a B.A. in Communications from Fordham University.
Greg Fitzgerald has worked for The Book Report Network since 2006, though he has been part of the TBRN family — literally and figuratively — since 1996. As Accounts Manager, he acts as a liaison for both website clients at AuthorsOnTheWeb, and editorial clients at the other websites of The Book Report Network. He also handles accounting for TBRN. In his free time, Greg enjoys traveling, curling, geocaching, and off-roading his classic Land Rovers. Greg is a graduate of Fordham University at Lincoln Center, with a B.A. in History.
Tom Donadio, a graduate of Fordham University at Rose Hill, began working at The Book Report Network in 2002 as an Editorial intern and joined the company’s editorial staff full time the following year. As Editorial Director, Tom assigns and edits all the reviews and features that appear on Bookreporter.com, and oversees the content for other sites in The Book Report Network. He also manages the company’s interns.
Jennifer Lai graduated from Wesleyan University with a degree in studio arts. It was while studying online journalism at Columbia University that she developed her passion for web design. After working in journalism for two years, she decided to make the switch to design. At TBRN, she enjoys creating graphics and websites for the publishing industry, because it combines her love of art and writing.
