Author of The Teenager's Guide to Surviving a Fairy Tale and 2020 IPNE young adult awards finalist The Teenager’s Guide to Surviving a Horror Film.
Coral loved writing books that featured dazzling worlds, fantastic landscapes, vivid narratives, and heartfelt love stories as a child and young teen. Coral’s true love and protector, who she remembers from past lifetimes, is her muse for her main male protagonists.
Currently, Coral also enjoys composing music and singing. In her spare time, she loves watching Asian dramas, films, food, and comedies. She also enjoys walking her beautiful dog, evenings eating pineapple-topped pizza and playing video games, and horseback riding.
My favorite type of pizzas are pepperoni and pineapple, UNO's Deep Dish Farmer's Market with added pineapple, and phili cheesesteak with peppers (I know, no pineapple on the last one, but it's so good!)
Some of my current favorite books are Disney's Twisted Tale: Reflection (Mulan) by Elizabeth Lim and Spin the Dawn by Elizabeth Lim.
My favorites are Okami, the Legend of Zelda series (especially Twilight Princess, Majora's Mask, Hyrule Warriors, and Breath of the Wild), Pokemon, Little Nightmares, Assassin's Creed: Origins, World of Warcraft, and Halo.
Horses are a HUGE part of my life. I currently love show jumping and drooling over Nokotas, Friesians, Holsteiners, Fjords, Gypsy Vanners, and Hanoverians. I love creating horse art for Peace & Wolf Ethical Apparel.
I have a Native American Indian Dog service dog who inspired the service dog character, Prince, in my young adult fantasy comedy, The Teenager's Guide to Surviving a Fairy Tale.
My favorite movies are Kung Fu Hustle, Justice my Foot, Secrets in the Hot Spring (2018), Kubo and the Two Strings, Spirited Away, Howl's Moving Castle, Kiki's Delivery Service, 27 Dresses, and 10th Kingdom.
I illustrate and create the cover art for my own books. Although I prefer digital art, I sketch out the design on my touch screen computer stroke-by-stroke.
I have story ideas from my early teen years all the way to now, accumulating to more than a dozen books to finish in the future. Currently, I have five books I'm dying to write (one horror, but no pun intended).
At least not those who didn't already know my age. Most people guess I am fifteen. The youngest guess was twelve. The oldest guess was eighteen. I am actually twenty-seven.
