Hello and welcome to my website! My name is Leilani Graceffa, and writing is an enjoyable habit for me when I'm not trying to publish. When I'm not writing, I'm either singing or outside photographing everything. However, writing is my primary occupation, and I am ecstatic to continue sharing another gift of storytelling (other than music) with the world.
