In her writing process, Corine discovered that personal imagination can be a practice of internal healing. A quiet girl with loud thoughts, young Corine had a lot of friends she liked to laugh with. They did most of the talking, and she listened and observed. Throughout this time, she kept a journal—writing poems, thoughts, and elaborate stories—some of which featured her birth mom and who Corine imagined her to be.
In 2014, as a married adult, Corine kept having the same recurring dream: a guy and a girl, and the girl kept refusing his marriage proposal. But why? The pieces began coming together from her memory. She realized a connection between the dream and the relationship anxieties of her own life: Corine’s ideas about love still needed reconciliation.
Corine strongly derives her work from her own experiences. In her book A Small Piece of Her Heart, the female protagonist, Aubrey, has a relationship with her mother that, while not an exact replica of Corine’s, bears similarly challenging circumstances. Corine finds common ground between her personal life and the lives of her characters. For Corine, writing allows her to invoke memories and observations into the development of her characters.
Over time, Corine understood the process of using fiction to rewrite her past life experiences. You can subtly address past mistakes with newfound wisdom. You can “re-imagine the self.” Aubrey declares this realization toward the end of A Small Piece of Her Heart.
“But you can write yourself a better future—and this time, make sure your character has character, fascinate us with your plot, then leave us speechless with your ending. And remember, not everyone deserves a role in your story…”
Corine writes with her daughter in mind—a picture of her younger self. She considers her own life lessons and those of others who impacted her, then asks: How could this have been better? What is the lesson here? These lessons inform the re-imagined landscape of her stories, in which the characters represent alternative ways of knowing and being.
