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 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.
This beautiful photo of the Coliseum and the Caelian Hill caught at that perfect, magical afternoon hour of golden sunlight is – unfortunately – not mine. My colleague David Palmer captured this photo of Rome and the snow-capped mountains in the distance.
