Bio: Orna is a former interior designer from Ireland, who also worked for many years in South Africa and Mozambique. Now living in Puglia in the south of Italy with her husband Tom, Orna is writing full time and her award winning blog covers all things Italian. Her first book, on home renovation, was written specifically with women in mind and is available on Amazon.com and on Lulu.com. It is called 'Renovate & Redecorate without Breaking a Nail.' Orna, having written magazine articles for many years, now regularly writes for glossy Irish magazine Anthology. Orna's first work of fiction, The Blonde in the Gondola, was set in Venice, while Orna lived close by and was able to do in-depth research. It was published in 2019. Her latest work, In the Shadow of the Olive Tree, set in Puglia, was released in July 2021. Both books follow the trials and tribulations of Irishwomen who move to Italy and how their lives intersect with many twists and turns along the way.
