GraceAnne is a reader, writer, teacher, editor, and speaker. She is deeply interested in children's literature, especially picture books; young adult literature, especially fantasy; and the voices of girls and young women in fiction. She teaches children's and young adult literature, Female Voices in Historical Narratives, and Writing A Life: biographies and personal narratives in the LIS and PDS programs. She teaches mostly online, and is a passionate advocate for online teaching and learning.
When not teaching, she reviews books, reads, and researches in her second floor home office aerie in the green and leafy Bronx, where she was born, raised, and educated. She spends too much time putting rock and roll and medieval music on her iPod, following the New York Yankees, and thinking about what lovely thing can be made for dinner.
