About me


I was born in Sardinia, adopted in the US, and grew up in Brooklyn. I am married happily for more than 32 years, with two amazing sons. I read voraciously, particularly about history of the ancient world. Since I love travelling, I have walked through parts of that ancient world, including Pompeii, the Acropolis, ancient Akrotiri, and the Giza Pyramids and Sphinx.

While I have a handful of short science-fiction stories published, I have turned to writing historical fiction. I have one short historical fiction story published in a small indie anthology entitled HerStory. Currently I am working on several novels, centered in the time of the founding of Rome, and embracing the wider ancient world including Sardinia and the Etruscans.

In this blog I will share bits of historical research pertaining to my fiction, as well as excerpts. Any opinions expressed herein, and all content herein, are my own.
