Brunella is an award-winning children’s book author and she is represented by BookEnds Literary Agency. She is the owner of The Military Editor® Agency, LLC. Her uncontrollable and constant need to travel derives from her childhood, which she spent travelling the world on a cruise ship thanks to her father, who was the commander. She was born and raised in Bacoli, a small coastal town in southern Italy and, when she wasn’t sailing the seven seas, her childhood playground was made of what was left of the marble-floored villas, mosaic-decorated baths, and temples left behind by Roman emperors. Mother to two children and proud military spouse, she was named the 2020 Armed Forces Insurance Military Spouse of the Year on the base level. Brunella is the proud citizen of her two favorite countries: USA and Italy.
