Re Marzullo


"Writing is like breathing. If I don't do it, I don't feel so good."

This quote really sums up my love of reading, writing, and words in general. My whole life I've just felt better when I'm creating something. After trying painting, pottery, and a very short stint in a home ec class (I sewed a shirt that even my dog wouldn't wear), I've realized that writing is the type of creating I'm best at.

Since I'm a middle school English teacher by day, I have worked morning (early) noon (lunch hours) and night (under the covers) to finish my first YA novel SPED which I am super excited to share with my students and the world.

In addition to writing, I also have a passionate love of football (Geaux Saints and Sic Em Dawgs), potato chips and peanut butter (not together #gross), and my amazing family.
