Michelle Fabio has truly followed her dreams.  This is her very cool  web site and blog.


Michelle is an American writer and attorney, originally from eastern Pennsylvania, who moved to Badolato, Catanzaro, her family's ancestral village in Calabria, fell in love, found her roots, adopted two dogs and three kids (baby goats), tends to chickens, rabbits, ducks, and a growing garden and writes to her heart's content.
