I was hit with the writing bug and in 2011 I took a big chance and wrote a novel - “Menopause in Manhattan”. I self-published it, the amazing Charles Fazzino designed the cover and to my utter delight, it has sold over 10,000 copies to date. 

I wasn't just busy writing though. My love of people, design and food naturally led to frequent entertaining. I hosted fascinating women from local and international circles and shared the customs of my adopted country, with a strong emphasis on its food and culinary traditions. That led to an idea - what about running a Bed & Breakfast here and sharing what I’m so fortunate to have with others?
