Educated as a scientist, graduated as a mathematician, Cora Tate has been a full-time professional entertainer most of her life, including a stint as a regular performer on the prestigious Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Tennessee. Cora’s repeated attempts to escape the entertainment industry have brought work as a librarian, physics teacher, syndicated newspaper columnist, and city (land use) planner, among other occupations. Cora lives, writes, and continues to improve her dzonkha vocabulary and pronunciation in Bhutan but has contemplated visiting the US or Europe to perform and recharge her bank account. She has settled in Bhutan but in previous decades has lived, performed, and taught in the U.S., Australia, New Zealand, and Denmark. Cora has written four novels, three novellas, three novelettes (two published), and thirty-some short stories, of which seventeen have been published in six countries.
