Ten things I’d tell my younger self about love and relationships
- Time changes everything. And everyone.
- Treat your romantic partners and the men who would like to be your romantic partners the same: kindly.
- If he’s interested in you, he’ll call. If he doesn’t, it’s not because he’s saving the orphans in Africa or lost in Sudoku.
- The right guy won’t make you feel dumb and won’t let his friends do it, either.
- You can’t trade sex for love.
- NEVER settle for a guy. NEVER.
- Do your best to communicate. If he can’t, leave. It’ll never work.
- Every guy who hurts you leads you to the one who won’t.
- Practice saying, “No.” Then say it.
- Don’t date a married man. If you do, remember the words of the late Sir James Goldsmith: “When a man married his mistress, he creates a vacancy.”

Author | To Rome With Love | Release, February, 2016
When Gaby Conte’s Italian husband, Danieli, abandons her for a young Peruvian waitress at a restaurant they co-own in San Francisco, Gaby seeks refuge in Rome with her best friend Maria. There, she swears off romance for a long while and Italian men forever. That’s until she meets Silvio, who belongs to an old, aristocratic Roman family and lives in a palace alongside the best private art collection in Rome. Silvio, who is the cousin of Maria’s husband, is going through his own divorce. He’s gorgeous, of course, which Gaby doesn’t tell him. And arrogant and condescending, which she does. The last thing Gaby needs is more Italian trouble, but the attraction is instant and powerful, and against the backdrop of one of the world’s most romantic cities, both try—and fail—to resist the chemistry between them. But both Gaby and Silvio have made a rule never to make the mistake of trusting in love again. Will they realize some rules are made just to be broken?
