Born and raised in New Jersey, Donna Fox is a special education teacher of 17 years with a specialty in language arts who stepped away from her love of teaching to raise her son with all of that love. Donna's fond memories of the Jersey Shore combined with her favorite pastime of reading to her son inspired her to write Jersey Girl, a joyful combination of past and present.
