Nella Coiro

Even as a young child, Nella Coiro would write poetry and songs. She’s developed her writing skills quite a bit since then, but the thrill of language and creation she first discovered as a child has never gone away. She’s been writing for years, and has no intention of slowing down anytime soon. 

She’s the author of the popular books: The Forgiveness Journey, The Forgiveness Journey Workbook, and her memoir, Dancing in the Rain, A Memoir of Courage, Strength, & Resilience. Her books can be purchased globally, wherever books are sold. She is also currently working on a book of poetry which is a collection of poems she has written throughout her life.

Nella has overcome much adversity in her own life, and her goal is to inspire and help others to heal, learn from, grow, and to rise above their own challenges. She is also currently on dialysis, and volunteers as a Peer Mentor and Patient Representative, to help others touched by kidney disease. Nella also hopes to receive a donor kidney in the future.

Aside from writing, she holds undergraduate and graduate degrees in psychology and is retired as a mental health professional, and is a certified life coach and a mindfulness practitioner.  She also does limited speaking engagements on a variety of topics.

Being an animal advocate and animal lover, she also runs a group to help individuals who are grieving the loss of their beloved animal companions.

Aside from her books, Nella’s other writings have been published in various publications, and she has been interviewed by The Times, The Putnam County Press, and Eventful Magazine, and has appeared on the TV show, Artists and their Art.

On a more personal note, Nella dabbles in other creative arts. She is a musician and has performed in bands with her husband. She also enjoys painting in oils and acrylics.  She and her husband Kenny both spoil their lovable hound rescue, Alex.
