Kinga Koranyi was born in Budapest, Hungary in 1995. She spent most of her life in Hungary, has lived in New York City for a year and is presently a resident of Toronto. Kinga started writing at the age of eight, finished her first novel at the age of fourteen, and her first book, "Fame and Shame" was published in Budapest during the summer of 2011.
Fame and Shame is about a teenage girl, Lizzie, who is aspiring to become a famous singer. Not only is Lizzie continuously challenged by the ongoing pressure of the television singing contest, Canadian Star, but she is continuously challenged by her gorgeous twin sister, Claire, not to mention a turbulent family life and a world lacking in moral standards.
Kinga is presently translating her first novel into Hungarian, and the translation will be published in the spring of 2012.
