I'm on this amazing site thanks to my good friend and fellow Italophile Susan Van Allen and am planning on being a frequent contributor. <br /> <br /> Me? -I'm a writer, a reader, a traveler, a Pilates addict, and a lover of Rome - the history, the people, the art, the chaos, and the food. When I'm not in Rome doing "research", I'm in Florida writing, cooking, or dreaming about my next trip. I'd really rather write about bucatini all'amatriciana than myself, so if you hunger for more info, it's available on my website <a href="http://www.flavorsofrome.com" target="_blank" style="color: rgb(192, 132, 52);"><b>Flavors of Rome</b></a>. <br /> <br /> I've just published my first book Flavors of Rome, How, What and Where to Eat in the Eternal City, a concise and informative primer on how to eat in Italy in general and where to eat in Rome in particular. The book is available through my website for $11.95. I'm also working on another book which will be a recipe driven narrative of my life since I was first seduced by Rome back in 1992. <br /> <br /> For more information or to purchase Flavors of Rome, please visit <a href="http://www.flavorsofrome.com" target="_blank" style="color: rgb(192, 132, 52);"><b>flavorsofrome.com</b></a>
