Coco Mingolelli was born in November of 1983, to an English American father, and an Italian American mother. She grew up in central New York state, where early impressions of her life left an indelible mark. In accompanying her grandmother to work in the kitchens of the Diocesan seminary, she witnessed first hand the idiosyncrasies and internal secrets of Catholic religious life.

Her inaugural novel, Peccatum in Carne: Sins of the Flesh, took three years to write, and has been lauded by both editors and readers alike. Mingolelli's educational background in political science, abnormal and adolescent psychology, and religion gives her a broad base from which to approach the sensitive subject matters discussed in her work.

The easy answer would be chainsmoking -- yes, I'm aware that it's bad for your health, and I don't recommend it -- and a pot of coffee.

But, writer's blocks happen for a variety of reasons. Sometimes, the only thing I can do is take a "walk with the character" giving me trouble -- a hike through nature as I have a mental conversation with "them."

If it's plot giving me an issue, I try to take a break from writing that particular story, for a few days. Other creative writing such as poetry fills the time, and I come back to the page fresh and ready. (less)

“I doubt you would understand what it is like, to watch yourself die more and more each day, while birthing a whole new woman at the same time.”
Coco Mingolelli, Peccatum in Carne: Sins of the Flesh

“She could sense the fear and anxiety of babies and younger children upon meeting her for the first time; their wide eyed stares, fidgeting, and outright tantrums. Blaring like little homing beacons, they knew that Mallory wore a disguise to cover her wounds, and that they probably weren't safe. They were so very innocent and unblemished from the world, and saw straight through to her heart. 

It was the real reason she preferred not to be in their company or head a classroom full of tiny ones, though she often told those who questioned her preference for teaching teenagers that she didn't like small children. 

Children hated pain. It was rare that they wouldn't shy away from an adult whose heart was laden with it.”
Coco Mingolelli, Peccatum in Carne: Sins of the Flesh

“One ought never laugh at their Queen, especially when that woman is their wife.”
Coco Mingolelli, Peccatum in Carne: Sins of the Flesh

“There was a dazzling intellect beneath the girl's sadness, she was sure - and it bothered Mallory to no end that it might go wasted on the world if Dawn could not be coaxed out of her melancholy.”
Coco Mingolelli, Peccatum in Carne: Sins of the Flesh
