Caradad Piñeiro Scordato was born in Havana, Cuba and settled in the New York Metropolitan area. She attended Villanova University on a Presidential Scholarship and graduated Magna cum laude. Caridad earned her Juris Doctor from St. John's University and became the first female and Latino partner of Abelman, Frayne & Schwab, an Intellectual Property firm in Midtown Manhattan.
Caridad is a multi-published author whose love of the written word developed when her fifth grade teacher assigned a project - to write a book that would be placed in a class lending library. She has been hooked on writing ever since.
Caridad's fourteenth novel, DEVOTION CALLS, was released by Silhouette Nocturne in January 2007. THE CALLING vampire series, based on characters from Caridad's first vampire book in March 2004, DARKNESS CALLS, debuted with DANGER CALLS in June 2005 and TEMPTATION CALLS in October 2005. Due to overwhelming fan support and reviews, the fourth book in the series, DEATH CALLS, helped Silhouette launch its new Nocturne paranormal line and Caridad was one of the authors featured by Harlequin at this year's BookExpo America in Washington, D.C.
THE CALLING vampire series will continue with BLOOD CALLS in May 2007. Additional books are planned for the series.
In September 2006, SEX AND THE SOUTH BEACH CHICAS debuted from Simon & Schusterï¿½s Downtown Press. Three other releases are scheduled for 2007, including SOUTH BEACH CHICAS CATCH THEIR MAN and MOON FEVER, a paranormal anthology with Maggie Shayne, Susan Sizemore and Lori Handeland!
In April 2005, Caridad participated in the first ever Chica Lit anthology titled FRIDAY NIGHT CHICAS from St. Martinï¿½s Press.
In April 2006, Caridad and five other writers joined to create the CAPTURING THE CROWN series from Silhouette Intimate Moments. Caridad's title, MORE THAN A MISSION, was released in August 2006. The sequel to MORE THAN A MISSION, titled SECRET AGENT REUNION, will be available in August 2007.
When not writing, Caridad teaches workshops on various topics related to writing and heads a writing group. Caridad has appeared on Fox Televisionï¿½s Good Day New York, , New Jersey Newsï¿½ Jerseyï¿½s Talking with Lee Leonard and WGN-TV's Adelante Chicago as well as being one of the Latino authors featured at the first ever Spanish Pavilion at the 2000 Chicago BookExpo America.
