I've been involved in all aspects of the publishing industry, as an author, editor, and publisher of Italian, French, and Spanish language books for the adult who loves travel. Marketing is now my chief occupation, but I am also continuing to foster new works and also write a monthly syndicated blog. My language books are promoted on all major social media platforms and I would be happy to share my secrets! My language learning method is put to work via Zoom lessons based on my "Conversational Italian for Travelers" books. As both a physician and a writer, would be able to critique and edit medically related articles.
Founder and President of Stella Lucente, LLC, a publishing company dedicated to the production of unique language and travel-related books and materials for adults. Our textbook, "Conversational Italian for Travelers," is unique in that it serves to teach the Italian language in a gradual, understandable way, and can also be used as a reference book for frequently used expressions spoken by Italians today. Just released in 2019: "Conversational French for Travelers , Just the Important Phrases" pocket travel book. Coming soon in 2024: "Conversational Spanish for Travelers to Latin America, Just the Important Phrases." Audio books released: "Caterina Travels to Italy" and soon to be released: "Conversational Italian for Travelers, Just the Important Phrases," and "Audio Dialogue Practice Books, Volumes 1 and 2." Currently responsible for creating original content for all Stella Lucente websites and social media platforms.
