Her love of history, word artistry, and storytelling help to fuel these goals as do her students who particularly enjoy her classroom read alouds.

What are you working on now?
I am working on the sequel to Alice of the Rocks – a young adult fiction which is currently #1 on the Goodreads YA Time Travel Romance List.
E. Graziani’s reading recommendation:
I am absolutely loving A Brief History Of The Universe by J.P. McEvoy – He writes about the story of astronomy but from a totally humanistic perspective – more about the people who contributed to scientific advances rather than the advances themselves.
