Darryl Forman has been volunteering at 826 Valencia since she retired from her career as a financial-services writer in 2011. She lives in San Francisco with her adorable dog, Romo, and is working on her second book. Her first book, The Unleavened Truth, published by Untreed Reads Publishing, is a compilation of humorous essays.
Darryl enjoys the in-school programs where she works one-on-one with students to help open up their imaginations to enhance their story telling.
When not cajoling creativity from students, Darryl likes to walk around her beloved Bernal Heights neighborhood with Romo, cheer for the other Romo at Giants’ games, and challenge authority.
