About the Author
Damiani, Michelle: - Michelle Damiani is a freelance writer and clinical psychologist currently living in Charlottesville, Virginia. Her heart, however, is in Spello, Italy, where she and her family spent a year growing accustomed to being fish out of water, grappling with the hardships of parenting on foreign soil, and ultimately cleaving into the soul of Italian village life. While in Italy, Michelle used the time that her children were in Italian public schools to write a blog about their experiences. Once back in Charlottesville, she transformed the blog into a book, Il Bel Centro: a Year in the Beautiful Center. Her daily life in Umbria later inspired her novel, Santa Lucia. Written in sweeping telenovela style, and packed with drama, Santa Lucia is nonetheless grounded in the green heart of Italy. When not writing, doing therapy, or relaxing with her family, she can be found experimenting in the kitchen or tucked away with a travel memoir, dreaming of once again hitting the open road.
