About Darla:


Darla Salay is an avid reader of young adult (YA) novels and inspirational adult works with a classical feel. Two of her all-time favorite titles are The Secret Life of Bees and The Help. A writer of professional articles for Heinemann Digital Campus, she has written on topics such as introverted students and best reading practices. Darla is also an elementary school principal in preschool through first grade building, where she loves to share new literature with her students. She lives in central New Jersey with her husband and four children. An aspiring YA author, she often writes with her teacher-daughter, Falynn, surrounded by a mass of ragdoll cats and a very jealous maltese puppy.
