Cleo Coyle is the New York Times bestselling pseudonym for Alice Alfonsi, writing in collaboration with her husband, Marc Cerasini. As Cleo Coyle, they write the long-running Coffeehouse Mysteries.
Although both Alice and Marc were born and raised in small towns near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, they did not meet until they moved to New York City, where both began their post-college careers. After falling in love, Alice and Marc were married. Now they live and work in New York City, where they write independently and together, cook like crazy, care for their stray cat rescues, haunt coffeehouses, and hunt ghosts.
