About Me

I’m a writer of short stories and of historical fiction set in medieval times. My novel-in-progress is titled In the Warmth of the Sun, and it is a fictionalized account of the life of Hildegard of Bingen. It explores not just the historical figure known for her achievements as a physician, philosopher and composer, but a flesh-and-blood woman with desires and struggles of her own.

In my free time I practice yoga, travel to Scotland, and read historical fiction by Ken Follet, CJ Sansom, Umberto Eco, Hilary Mantel, and many others. My all-time favorite writers are Italo Calvino, Luigi Pirandello and Alberto Moravia.

Before I started writing creatively, I had published several articles on international relations. Below are links to a few of them:
