Laura Sassi, AUthor

I have a passion for telling stories in prose and rhyme. I’ve been a teacher, homeschool mom, children’s ministry director, historic museum interpreter, and more. I write from my home in New Jersey where I live with my husband, two children, and a black cockapoo named Sophie. I find special joy in sharing my love of reading and writing with the next generation at school visits and other book events!
