Learn Italian as I did, with my Conversational Italian for Travelers series of books! I was born into a family that loves to travel and I have spent many happy hours exploring Italy and getting to know my Italian “relatives” and their language and culture. 
Most importantly, my books are friendly and combine travel tips and humorous anecdotes that truly make learning the Italian language come alive!

Italian Culture


The Conversational Italian for Travelers textbook begins each chapter with a dialogue from a story about the character Caterina, an American girl who travels to Italy to visit her relatives. As the story continues from one chapter to the next, we learn Italian, and about Italy, in an engaging way through Caterina’s experiences.

Italian Food ( Recipes)


One-Pot Italian Chicken in Marsala Wine…
The recipe title, “One-Pot Italian Chicken in Marsala Wine” sounds rich… and it is! But it is also so easy to make! I am told that for many years in Italy, only relatively wealthy families had ovens. As a result, many wonderful Italian meals were developed that could be made entirely on the stove top. This actually fits perfectly with the lifestyle we live today. Click here for the Italian recipe.
