“Although I had a vivid imagination, I was never a fan of fantasy while growing up. I have my middle school students to thank for turning me into a ‘fang’ fan,” she said.
Grimley, who has taught seventh-grade English at Trottier Middle School in Southborough for 11 years, just released her second urban fantasy novel, “Unveiled.”
The novel is the sequel to “Unforeseen,” which was published last year, and continues the story of heroine Alex Crocker, who has a supernatural gift and lives among vampires.
