A Halloween Story

  I was feeling inspired by the “doom and gloom” of Halloween so I wrote my version of this spooky story. Happy Halloween! – Michelle         “Rosalie honey, come down and give your father and I a kiss,” called Mrs. Peterson from the foot of their ornate rosewood staircase. Rosalie bounced down the stairs, dressed in a cream colored lace dress, with her chihuahua skipping past her..

Venice Vacations – Part 2

Hello again from Venice. I just came back from a trip to the city in the Dolomiti, Cortina D’Ampezzo. The weather was quite different from Venice and I enjoyed some fresh air and some and some rain. The Dolomiti are quite beautiful.  The rocks are beautiful, tall, and have a pinkish coloring.  There are many trails to walk on that allow you to reach almost the top of the mountains..

Venice Vacation, Part 1

Greetings from Italy! I’m having a great vacation in wonderful Venice – the setting of my second book, http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00Y4F089A The weather is great and there sure is a lot of sun.

My New Book

My new book, Lost in Venice, is almost out! I’m very happy and I hope people will enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.

Isabella is a new character and she will be with Giulia during all of her.

Dancing, another way to express myself


Dancing is something I really like to do. When I dance I feel like I’m free. I follow the music and let myself go. Of course, to be a good dancer you need to have good technique. This is why I work hard and take many lessons. I like all types of dancing. My favorites are tap, jazz, and musical theater. I like musical theater because it always tells a.

Horseback Riding

My Love of Horseback Riding is Just Getting Started! Today I want to talk to you about one of my passions, horses. I really like horseback riding, even if I’m just getting started. There are different ways to ride horses. One kind is Western style. You ride with a big saddle to be more comfortable. In the past, cowboys needed to be on the horses for many hours so they.
