Della has been telling us (her parents and family) stories since she could first talk. She has a great sense of adventure, loves natures, and is inspired by all things fantastical. For years, when Della was telling us her stories (in the car, before bed, while on trips…), I would always say to myself “I should write this down.”
And one day, in March of 2014, I actually did…
One night, Della began telling me a story while we were working on her homework, sitting at our kitchen table. I grabbed my laptop, started typing, and the story of Della and Lila Meet the Monongahela Mermaid was born.
The Della and Lila Book Series was established to develop early childhood literacy, encourage creativity, and cultivate environmental and community service awareness in the minds of our youth. We promote love, kindness, and acceptance of others and ourselves. We are fully committed to the education and well being of children and families in southwestern Pennsylvania through special service programs and charitable donations.
