Klara Gomez comes from a long tradition of musicians. She began taking piano lessons at age four, composed her first piano piece at age eight, and received her B.M. in Classical Piano Performance from the University of Miami in her mid-twenties. Shortly after, she worked as Managing Editor for a local music publishing company. The process of going from pure inspiration to a palpable, finalized product seemed so mesmerizing that she began experimenting with songwriting. Her first attempt got her published and gave her the idea to expand her creative outlet to include fiction writing. Her first short stories and vignettes were inspired by classical compositions.
Klara Gomez lives in Miami Beach, where she teaches, concertizes, and directs a large children’s choir. Her first novel, The Ladder of Suspiros, is finished and ready to find a home. Meanwhile she is busy working on her second novel.
