Longtime journalist writes fiction! (No, journalists don't usually write fiction.)

Background Information

 My first book, "The Cielo: A Novel of Wartime Tuscany," was inspired by experiences of my cousin who, with other people from her village, fled to the hills and stayed in a farmhouse during the German occupation of WWII. The sequel, "Sparrow's Revenge: A Novel of Postwar Tuscany," described the relentless search by a member of the Resistance to find the collaborator of one of the worst massacres in Italy during the war. IIn the third, Dino’s Story: A Novel of 1960s Tuscany, a boy came of age during the devastating flood of Florence in 1966. Then the characters entered a new decade in The Temptation of Father Lorenzo: Ten Stories of 1970s Tuscany.Now these characters, along with a few new friends and relatives, return in A Piazza for Sant’Antonio, Five Novellas of 1980s Tuscany.
