Gabriele loves to recreate an era in which she can immerse herself and readers by weaving compelling stories around meticulously researched facts. Born in Germany, she emigrated to Canada as a young child. A graduate of the University of Toronto with an honours B.Sc. and a B.Ed. in the social sciences and English, she has had a varied career as an educator, literacy coordinator, and website designer, and has been an active community volunteer, particularly in heritage preservation and the arts. She also produced an award-nominated feature on CBC Radio.
Gabriele's real passion, however, is writing fiction. Her first short story appeared in the Canadian Authors Association Winners? Circle 5 Anthology. Peculiar facets of history and intriguing places inspire her stories. She is currently engrossed in Book 4 of the Muskoka Novels saga, exploring the WW2 era from a unique perspective.
