About Jeanette Bonfiglio
Jeanette was born in Brooklyn and raised in Long Island, New York. And studied Elementary Education at St. John’s University, Queens, New York.
Growing up, her house was always full of family whether it was for family dinners or traditional holiday gatherings. Christmas has always been her favorite holiday. For Jeanette there is just something magical about pine trees, holiday music, twinkly lights, and dreaming of a white Christmas!
In 1988, Jeanette moved to Florida where she and her husband began to focus on building a career in business. They share their lives with two amazing children, who became her daily inspiration… along with her dog appropriately nicknamed Teddy the Terror!
As someone who believes she was born in the wrong era, Jeanette has always been drawn to the charm of the 1950’s. She is intrigued by this era’s vintage style from the iconic pencil skirts and crew neck cardigans. And enjoys the old classic films of Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly. The 1950’s family life was reminiscent of “ordinary” and very much a family affair. Her story telling is influenced by this era.
Jeanette is a business CFO, designer and CEO of Angeltime Designer Delivery Wear, as well as an animal rescue volunteer. Jeanette Bonfiglio is currently writing children’s concept books and is a member of SCBWI (Society of Children’s Book Writer’s & Illustrators)
But, of all her work, accomplishments, and interests, she is most passionate about raising her family. Jeanette is inspired to write about ordinary moments with her children that have become extraordinary memories.
