By: Kimberlee Williams, Managing Editor
Forgotten and Within the Law are two highly sensual, romantic and edge-of-your-
Cordero says, with a laugh and a smile, “I was born and raised in New York City, grew up in an apartment in the Bronx, went to High School of Art & Design (57th & 2nd Ave, NYC) and college at Fordham University-Lincoln Center campus.
My first jobs were all in New York City -McCall’s Publishing, Brentano’s Book Store, Bloomingdales – and I was very involved in theatre and art pursuits.
My very first date with my husband was to a midtown Manhattan Indian restaurant and then the Manhattan Playboy Club. It must have been a great date, we’ve been married 32 years!”
The New York settings in Forgotten and Within the Law are all pleasant memories for Ms. Cordero, and she shared just a bit of what causes her to smile, saying, “Upper New York and the Adirondacks, well, I spent the summer I became engaged in Lake Placid, working at The Center for the Arts, as a lighting technician, and my future husband and I had our very first romantic encounter in that beautiful area.”
Chelle Cordero, author of the novels, Bartlett's Rule (VHP April, 2008), Forgotten (VHP July, 2008), Within the Law (VHP October, 2008), coming in February, the fabulous re-release of her debut novel, Courage of the Heart (VHP February, 2009), and scheduled for release in early Summer, 2009, Final Sin, has been published by Gannett Newspapers, SPOTLIGHT Magazine, Hudson Valley Magazine, and other national magazines and regional publications.
Ms. Cordero is also a partner in By-Lines, an editorial and photography company catering to the business community.
She lives in the New York suburb of Stony Point with her lover and husband of thirty-two years, and her son; her daughter and son-in-law live nearby.
In her spare time, and sometimes when she has none to spare, Chelle is an avid reader and fan of Danielle Steele, Faye Kellerman, Dean Koontz, Patricia Cornwell and other popular novelists.
