Caridad Scordato

Caridad Pineiro Scordato was born in Havana, Cuba. Her family came to the United States in the early 1960s to escape Fidel Castro and his communist regime, settling in the New York Metropolitan area. She currently lives in Edison, New Jersey with her family on a tree-filled property she vows to leave only for the Jersey Shore.

Caridad entered the public school system in Levittown and like many hyphenated Americans, became known as Charity to her English-speaking friends and neighbors. She also discovered her love of the written word when her fifth grade teacher assigned her class a project - to write a book that would be placed in a class lending library for fellow students to read. Naturally she wrote a romance and has been hooked ever since.

Caridad attended Villanova University on a Presidential Scholarship and graduated Magna cum laude with a B.S. in Science in 1980. She went on to earn a Juris Doctor from St. John's University in Jamaica, Queens.

Caridad is also a partner at a Mid-Manhattan law firm and has helped write articles which have appeared in the New York Law Journal. She has been married for over twenty years,and is the mother of a thirteen-year old girl budding artist (who keeps Caridad on her toes).
