Through these candid images of Italian boys and men I captured during the five years I lived in Italy I hope to convey the emotions and connections associated with each, as well as a sense of place and bits of stories.

My life as a global nomad (about 22 years) continues to influence my writing and photography. When I lived in Shanghai, I went through a sea change of sorts, resulting in a major shift in my writing (from fiction to memoir) and a great new love, photography. Currently my husband and I live in Garland, Texas, near our daughter, son-in-law and two granddaughters.
