A transplant from the American Midwest, I now live near the mountains of Colorado with my family and a rescue dog named Ziggy.
Described as a writer of "whimsical angst," I'm an Odyssey Workshop graduate, a member of Codex, and currently working toward my MFA in the USM Stonecoast program.
My short stories have appeared in the Flame Tree Press anthology, Robots & Artificial Intelligence, Apparition Literary Magazine, NewMyths, Kaleidotrope, and more. Many of the stories are available online. If you would like to read more, check out my publications page for links.
You can find me on : @C_Piveral@wandering.shop or email me at chloiepiveral @ gmail dot com
"The Great Gregor and Lady Lazarus's Final Show" can be read in Kaleidotrope's Autumn 2022 issue.
Released by ZNB Presents, May 15th, 2023- "We Go!"
"We Go," is the story of a has-been space jockey running his last race, confronting his legacy, his fear, and the consequences of his actions for the alien force that drives his coaster.
January 6th-15th I'll be in Maine for my Stonecoast residency.

"The issue begins with 'This Is the Thing' by Chloie Piveral. Nice, effective tale with a good sense of unease." -SFRevu
"A hissing respirator, a body trapped in an institution, and a mind looking for a way out… Piveral goes deep into the dreamlike, slip-sliding world of someone who isn’t all there and isn’t all gone either, and spins a chilling and suspenseful tale full." -Maria Haskins: 10 must-read fantasy & science fiction stories
