I was born in Brolo, Messina, Italy but lived in New York from the age of seven to my late thirties. For the past twenty years, my husband and I have lived in Florida. We enjoy fishing, snorkeling, boating, and vacationing in Georgia. I love to write and teach - these are my two passions, but I also love to cook, bake, quilt, and refinish antique furniture. Most Saturdays I am venture to Estate sales for antique bargains.
