Suzanne Palmieri has written “The Witch of Little Italy” and “The Witch of Belladonna Bay” along with “Empire Girls” and “I’ll Be Seeing You” with co-author Loretta Nyhan. Palmieri sums up her career in this fashion: “I’ve always wanted to be a writer, but life got in the way. At 22, I was a struggling, unwed mother on welfare who moonlighted as a cocktail waitress. My daughter and I collected food stamps and other social entitlements for several years. There never seemed to be enough money, and knowing I had to finish college I hustled to make ends meet. Education, and writing whatever I could, saved me!”
