From the very first, and no matter what the over topic of my fiction and poetry, it is all about what I know–from the inside out–and a lot of what I know comes from my Italian American Heritage.
This is the month we celebrate that heritage (and some other heritages as well, I know, but I am focusing on mine in this email.
So, I invite you to look at strong Italian American women in American history in my Legacy of Honor series–
Giulia Goes to War
Letters from Korea
A Bowl of Rice
Secrets of the Heart
And to take a look at my picture books–
Whoosh! (father daughter sled day)
and the newest, Summer in a Bowl which celebrates gardening with my Aunt
and cooking with her–her recipe is included in the book!
