Sally Valentine is a native of Rochester, N.Y., who has been both a student and a teacher in the Rochester schools. She is a math teacher off on a tangent of writing. Her love for kids, books, and Rochester led her to write a series of novels for intermediate grade kids which are each set in a different Rochester landmark. Sally is also the author of an award-winning book of poems, There Are No Buffalo in Buffalo, and co-author of Martha the Hairpreneur, the true story of a Rochester entrepreneur. Sally feels blessed to be a part of the rich Rochester writing community.
