Nella Coiro

Nella has always expressed herself through writing. Even as a young child, she would write poetry and songs. She’s developed her writing skills quite a bit since then, but the magic of language as a form of self expression has never gone away. 

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 entitled Snapshots through Timewhich is a collection of poems which she has written throughout her life. These writings document her life experiences concerning struggles, insights, healing and growth. This book is tentatively scheduled to be launched in 2024.

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 currently on dialysis, and volunteers as a Peer Mentor to help others who have also been 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, is retired as a counselor, and is a certified life coach.  She also does limited speaking engagements on a variety of topics.

Being an animal advocate and animal lover, she 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, 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, she plays the guitar, drums and keyboards, and has performed in bands with her husband. She also enjoys painting in oils and acrylics.  She and her husband Kenny both love and spoil their lovable hound rescue, Alex.
