About Larissa

I believe in writing and sharing stories (and anything literacy love) that make us laugh, inspires creativity, tugs at our heartstrings, transports us to magical places, and connects with children who need their voices heard.


Larissa Juliano is an elementary and library teacher in upstate New York. A Brighton, Buff State and Fisher graduate with minor in English, Bachelors in Elementary Ed and Masters in Literacy, she lives in her hometown with her husband and three young children. Being a mom and wife have been the greatest blessings of her life. Besides teaching, Larissa’s passion is writing books in hopes of inspiring children to use their imagination, especially through literature. This can be the very best travel ticket of all.
