About meI am a full time sculptor and painter who used to be a full-time writer. As a reaction to the lessening physicality of the novel and written word ( it all exists out there on the internet and on e-books) I began making sculptures that were the same size as computer screens and writing on the sculptures. It all evolved.

I am author of novels THE VIRGIN KNOWS and THE FIDDLE CASE. Both are art thrillers

Editor of AMERICAN WOMAN, ITALIAN STYLE. It's an anthology of writing about immigration as experienced by Italian women, who now hold more professional jobs and advanced degrees than any other ethnic group in the USA.

I taught writing at Boston University for 13 years. My focus reading list and literature studies : immigrant literature and food in literature, especially as it relates to immigrant experience.

My memoir GRANDMOTHERS is engraved in granite on a monolith at the Jackson Square subway/bus station in Boston.

About my libraryIn past few decades have been attracted to international books, particularly world fiction, rather than American titles. For a while I read Italian post-WW2 books as if they were potato chips. I particularly enjoy the Italian and the Indian ( Hindu and Muslim) novel. Reading outside the country is a way to understand the pulse of the planet. Like other LT members, I must have read two books a week for every week of my life. Titles listed in my library are the cream-of-the-cream.
