I earned a bachelor’s degree in political science and history from Cornell University and an MBA, with a concentration in strategy and marketing, from Bocconi University in Milan, Italy.
My work experience in government and radio and television journalism gave me the chance to live between Europe and the US: in Prague, Vienna, southern Georgia and Washington, DC.
In 1999, I moved to Rome, Italy, where I live with my husband and two sons and work in international development.
It was in Rome where I joined a wonderful writing group and decided to dedicate my free time to jotting down the stories that had long been taking shape in my mind. I’m a proud member of the Women’s Fiction Writers Association.
I’m an unabashed traveloholic and love nothing more than setting off to explore new destinations and revisiting old favourites.
If I’m doing things right, I should be returning from a trip with new books from the country, the sounds of another language buzzing in my head, lots of inspiration for stories, and a suitcase full of regional culinary specialties that will fool me into “extending” my holidays well beyond my return.
