Although Floriana has written all of her life, her family was her priority until her children were raised. When she was 68 years old, she was inspired in church to write her first published poem, LOVE NEVER DIES, which won the Editor's Choice Award. Floriana is still active in her church and has been a volunteer for many other organizations. She feels that all of her accomplishments are a gift from God. After an out of body experience as a child, she knows that heaven and angels are waiting for all of us.
Her philosophy of life is 'The secret of life is not to take it personally'
