The author of five highly acclaimed historical novels, Gabriele loves to recreate an era in which she can immerse herself (and readers), by weaving compelling stories around meticulously researched facts. Her characters are best friends, whom others are now calling "cherished friends".
With degrees in the social sciences and education, Gabriele has had a varied career as an educator, literacy coordinator, and website designer, and has been an active community volunteer, particularly in heritage preservation. But writing fiction has always been her passion. Her first short story appeared in the Canadian Authors Association Winners' Circle 5 Anthology. In 2001, she produced an award-nominated feature on CBC Radio's "Outfront".
Her other novels are:
"Elusive Dawn" - Book 2 of The Muskoka Novels
"Under the Moon" - Book 3 of The Muskoka Novels
"A Place to Call Home"
There's lots of information on her website - Mindshadows.com - including reviews, sample chapters, links to book trailers, and an online store.
