Hello there! I’m Daniella.

I’m an aspiring picture book author. But before deciding to write for little kids, I was a teacher of big ones! After earning my B.A. in Secondary Education and English from the University of Arizona, I worked as an English teacher, curriculum development specialist, and varsity swim coach until my own two kids arrived onto the scene.

Thanks to my family’s curious curiosity, I am never short on story inspiration! In late 2021, I felt it was time to rejoin a learning community and pursue a life-long dream of writing children’s literature.
