Chiara currently lives in Italy, but the years of her childhood spent in Bellevue, Washington shaped her as a reader and nurtured her love for the English language. She likes to say that Bilbo Baggins and Daenerys Targaryen gave her life direction.

She now co-writes with her sister, Maria, under the pen name C.M. Karys, and their first novel, Ilahara: The Last Myrassar, was published on November 1, 2021!

Maas, Cassandra Clare and Tessa Bailey, but there are many books she adores, like the Captive Prince trilogy by C.S. Pacat, which she’s pushed on countless readers in her years in the book community. While Fantasy is her most read genre (especially YA and Adult), she's also an avid reader of Paranormal and Contemporary Romance, and she’s open to new experiences with genres outside of her comfort zone.
