Cynthia Dite Sirni was born in New York City and now proudly lives in Rome...the one in New York, not Italy. She received a Bachelor's Degree from The College of Saint Rose, Albany, NY and a Master's Degree from the State University of New York at New Paltz. A twenty-one year veteran high school teacher, she plans to be a writer when she grows up. Though she is American, Sirni has an Italian soul, through and through. Fashion, wine, travel, food and décor are just some of the things she likes to dabble in.
