Elena Bozzi loves forest adventures, horticulture, traveling the world, and writing. She has various degrees concerning literature, science, art, and teaching. She looked far and wide to read a certain book. She could not find it, so she wrote it, and hopes you will enjoy it. Her next one is coming soon. Instagram: @bozzlore
What's the story behind your latest book?
I'm working on several projects. They only have working titles right now. The one that is furthest along comes from wishing I remembered my dreams more. It involves a world where dreams are full of important information and a dream eater that follows the main character.
Another project is a delightful tale inspired by a character in the novel above, who has very little backstory. It's turning into a coloring book.
The third project is the tale of Nimupara, who appears in my first book, Puddle: A Tale for the Curious. She's seen some intrigue.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I love seeing what my imagination can do with my experiences. I love being able to share that, no matter how terrifying it can be that other people would be reading my thoughts, my heart, and soul. It's a vulnerable place, but empowering. I love hearing that someone has found joy in things I've written.
Puddle is a tale for the dreamer, the nature lover, and the healer in each of us. It is for those of us who notice details, such as reflections upon tranquil water. This story is for those of us who listen to the land. Read it slowly. Savor the words. Join the horticulturally-inclined high school student and world traveler as they flow through a watery portal, into the middle of a forest festival.
