Write What You Know

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–
