MARIA NOVAJOSKY is a freelance writer whose articles have appeared in magazines, newspapers, and faith publications. She lives in Georgia with her husband and three sons where life is a blend of frothy cappuccinos, basketball games, Sunday dinners with the Nonni, opera in the kitchen, and homemade limoncello. She is also an amateur tour guide and occasionally sponsors group travel to Italy. An Ocean, an Airplane, and Two Countries Full of Kisses is her first book. She blogs about her Italian-American life at La Dolce Vita the Sweet Life with Three Sons.
