More than ten years after I finished my two books on Kiwis and Italians in WW2 I continue to enjoy hearing from people discovering things about (often) their parent's or grandparent's adventures in Italy.

My book "Fighting with the Enemy" was also published in Italian and I was able to attend the book launch in Portogruaro.

Curently I am writing poetry and a novel set in Italy. I live with my partner in Auckland, have four daughters and am also a devoted Nonna to my three grandchildren.

I am sometimes contacted for copies of my books. I have some new copies of "In Love and War" for $25 but am out of copies of "Fighting with the Enemy". They appear second-hand on Trade Me from time to time for 15 to 20 dollars.
