Della began the journey of writing for publication when her own children were young. Inspired by countless trips to the library and piles of picture books, Della joined SCBWI, took a writing class, attended conferences, and joined a fun and supportive critique group.
Fast forward to today where Della is the author of BEEP! BEEP! SPECIAL DELIVERY, as well as other picture books and beginning readers. Her stories and poems have appeared in children’s magazines such as Highlights High Five, Highlights Hello, Ladybug, Babybug, Boy’s Quest, Children’s Playmate and Clubhouse, Jr. She is a co-founder of Children’s Writers of the Hudson Valley (CWHV), a volunteer group that organizes hands-on writer’s conferences.
Della is a French teacher and lives in the beautiful Hudson Valley in New York with her husband, three children and two guinea pigs. In addition to writing and teaching, she loves spending time with her family and cheering them on at basketball and baseball games, and running races. Della also likes to cook, travel, read (mainly children’s books), take leisurely walks and study French language and literature.
