I’m English by birth, Italian by childhood, and American by adoption. After a career at a major corporation, I’m raising my children and writing in Philadelphia. Love, War and Ice Cream is my first novel. I‘m working on the sequel, Romans and Dragons, based in Rome between 1965 and 1990. In parallel, I’m writing a partly historical science fiction novel on dreams and inheritance. I have also written several stories for children about the emergence of holiday traditions.

Love this picture of “Lady & Leopards” I just came across in this Huffpost article by the author of a recent book about circus history, Linda Simon. If I wasn’t driving kids around and cooking food and washing up all weekend long maybe I’d write something. Roll on Monday!
