About me: Since moving to Sicily in 2002 from Australia Rochelle has worked as a journalist, translator and writer.
She is currently working on a travel memoir titled Descent into Sicily. Her other areas of interest include: poetry, screenplay adaptation, opera libretti, the novella, Sicilian Literature and photography.
Rochelle currently writes two separate lifestyle and travel blogs Talking in Tongues and the Unwilling Expat while working on other projects and raising her son.
After a decade of living in Sicily things are less adventurous and she is looking for ways of appreciating this expat existence, sharing itís difficulties and contemplating about living life away from home.
Unwilling expat is about the current journey through Sicily.
