Giulietta is Italian for Juliet or Juliette, however you wish to spell it, and the Giu sounds just like a J. She is Italian American, born in the US. She has an Associate degree with a concentration in Humanities, from Ocean County College in Toms River, NJ, where she worked as a Supplemental Instructor for English college students in her last semester and where two of her poems were published in the college’s literary and art magazine, Seascape. She also was Secretary and one of the Associate Editors for Seascape at the time, during 2015 and 2016. In addition, she studied basic and advanced writing for children and teens with the Institute of Children’s Literature, Connecticut. Besides spending time writing, she works part-time as a substitute teacher in her area for elementary school children. She is a writer of novels, poems, and short stories for children and teens, some for adults and always for the ageless. Also, she was a former government worker, reflexologist and nutritionist.
Born in Manhattan, she was brought to NJ at the early age of one year, along with nine other siblings and did not get the New York experience at all. As far as growing up in such a large household, she says, “Quite an experience and memorable.” Her mother was the backbone of the family that gave relentlessly of herself day or night. A woman that defined unselfish love, sacrificed much, and was the love of her life. Her father worked tirelessly seven days a week.
Her best loves are: reading; writing; libraries; her own children and grandchildren, and children of all ages; cold, wintry days; snow for sledding; nature; Antartica; the wilderness; the ocean; gardening; learning about the universe; farmhouses; cooking; outdoor flea markets; crocheting; movies; the colors of blue, especially navy; eating healthy; and traveling when possible.
She dislikes traffic and careless driving; ill manners; mistreatment of women and children; not honoring the planet and its resources; when cable tv goes on the blink or having a power failure; and not being loved.
She waits patiently and works diligently in attaining the publication of several middle grade novels she has completed. In the meantime, please enjoy any writings she has shared here, her poems, and novel summaries she has displayed.
