Cohen's father was superintendent of the Lexington School for the Deaf in Queens, New York, and she became fluent in sign language there. She entered NYU at age 16, intending to study drama, but later transferred to Hampshire College to study literature, graduating in 1988. After working as a sign language interpreter for two years, she entered Columbia Journalism School, graduating in 1991. Deciding she had no interest in being a reporter, she intended to write fiction on the side. An offer from a New York literary agent to publish her nonfiction, but not her short stories, changed her mind. She is currently working on her fourth novel.
Cohen lives in Belmont, Massachusetts.
