Ann’s most recent novel Tell Me, Signora (winner of the Elixir Press Fiction Award) was a Finalist for the Northern California Book Award in Fiction.  It tells the story of Kate Hagesfeld, a recent widow who goes to Italy just after 9/11 to restart her career as an archaeologist, and gets caught up in an effort to aid refugees from the Kosovo War.  Despite its serious themes, Tell Me, Signora shines with humor, the pleasures of food and wine, and delicious sex scenes.  This is Italy, after all!
