Having traveled since she was six years old, Coralie loves to place her characters where she has visited or lived. So far, her books include exotic places like Canada's Newfoundland/Labrador, Tuscany, New Zealand, and Tudor England. Her latest book is closer to home, taking place in an early 19th century Shaker community in western Massachusetts.
A graduate of Cal Berkeley, Coralie was born and raised in the California bay area, but she has lived in Oregon, The Netherlands, New Mexico, and Texas. She now lives with her husband, golden retriever, and tabby in Massachusetts. She has recently learned that her relatives lived in New England in the 17th and 18th centuries--something that helps make her feel at home.
