Welcome to my website. I am the author of the memoir, My Father’s Daughter, From Rome to Sicily. It was published by Divine Phoenix Books In coordination with Pegasus Books. This trilogy tale is an adventure of a lifetime, as I move through ancient sites of Rome, my father’s mountain village in Sicily, and my matriarchal lineage in the valley of Mount Etna. 

Join me on two special journeys. First, as I uncover my family’s heritage in the memoir. Then as you wander through the website, you’ll see just where My Father’s Daughter has taken me.
