Helen is the writer (and occasional brain) behind Truly, Madly, Italy. She hails originally from Cornwall, England, where she trained as an actor. She spent 10 years in Dublin, working in acting, voiceover and the occasional office, where she wrote a couple of children’s plays (outside office hours, of course..) and the writing bug was born. She met and married an Italian, ‘Mr M’, and they moved to his home-town, Frosinone (South East of Rome) in December 2013. Since then, she has been blogging her attempts to make-like-an-Italian. It’s a work-in-progress.
She is studying la bella lingua Italiana, and shares the (painful) process of doing so, whilst offering up top-tips and useful resources for other learners. On a more general front, she tries to elucidate the often-complex and contradictory reality of Italian life, for would-be expats, and anyone with an interest in Italy.She also hopes to make you giggle, ah go on, you know you want to. We’re a very long way from ‘Under the Tuscan Sun’ but if you’re interested in the language, the food, the characters, the social norms and daily challenges of expat life, you’ve come to the right place.

She is delighted to have you visit, (she’s just made a fresh pot of tea!) do feel free to comment and question, there’s nothing she enjoys more than a good ol’ chat.
