"My writings are geared toward educating the young, our future. Every book I write for them, I try to incorporate a lesson to be learned or teach them something new." ~Sun Sentinel Newspaper 07/24/96

Ms. Piccolo currently resides in Florida and when not writing, enjoys curling up on the couch with a warm cup of tea and a good book to read. To Ms. Piccolo, there is nothing better in the world than allowing a book to take hold of you and your imagination. Reading, next to learning, truly is the greatest adventure of them all.

"I think the ability for a child to use their imagination is often lost nowadays in our fast-paced world of technology. I am trying to bring it back by writing creative, fun stories that sometimes have pictures inside, and sometimes not. I want you, the reader, to enjoy using your Imagination - for it is the key that unlocks the door to endless possibilities."
