Servus

Servus is how one says hello in Vienna. And with this greeting and the picture below I hope you will be reminded to check out all the historical, cultural, and gastronomic information, videos and audio in this website. I add to it regularly.

I was born in liberated Rome to a Viennese mother and Italian father, arrived in the U.S. via Argentina, and grew up in New York, in a neighborhood of Holocaust survivors and fellow Europeans displaced by war. After studying in New York, Germany and Maryland I worked for the Dept. of Defense in Washington, DC before moving to Naples, Italy where I lived for five years. Later, my husband and I spent six years in Switzerland. After twenty years as a ceramic painter and teacher, I turned to writing. My husband and I have two children and four grandchildren and live in Arlington, Virginia.
