Biography: Lala Corriere
Lala was no doubt a premiere and loyal monthly subscriber to Dr. Seuss’s children’s books, and years later, one of the first teenage girls to hide Erica Jong’s 'Fear of Flying' deep under the folds of her mattress. Lala's mother taught her the love of books by devoting daily reading time.
From early childhood, Lala has been passionate about all the arts. She is a painter and a former stage performer. Early work careers blended selling high-end real estate in Colorado, where she was also president of an interior design firm, Connoisseur, Ltd. Extended university coursework focused on the fine arts, but the lure of writing was even stronger.
The seeds of her writing journey were sown by Lala’s fifth grade teacher, Miss Macey. She was the first mentor to suggest Lala consider a career in writing. That extension of the arts through the written word, and a bold commitment, turned into a full time passion in 2001.

Lala writes suspense with romantic elements. While she enjoys vivid descriptions of the most nefarious of characters, she also insists on including a redeeming social message in her work, bringing readers to experience human conditions in ways that many may not be familiar. ‘With a deeper awareness,’ Corriere says, ‘comes understanding, be it a small acceptance or a life altering epiphany.’
Readers and reviewers applaud her hallmark original plots, her in-depth character portrayals, rich scene settings, and authentic dialogue, all delivered with a fresh new voice.
Lala is a desert rat. She nestles in the southwestern US with her husband of over 20 years, Chuck, and the kid-cats, Bibelot, Sidney and Charlotte. She has three sons: Jason, University of Colorado. Cameron, Vanderbilt University. And Tyler, University of Puget Sound.
She’s a full-time writer. Interests include her professional critique partnerships and active memberships, art, gardening, entertaining, bridge, and enjoying the abundant wildlife that find sanctuary on her grounds.
