About the Author

An aspiring writer from the age of eight, Kimberly Menozzi began writing her first stories instead of paying attention in school. While her grades might have suffered, her imagination seldom did. She managed to keep most of her stories together for years, then lost them after a move when she left a trunk full of papers behind. (She meant to go back and get them, but circumstances prevented her from doing so.)

So, she started over again. And lost those, too.

After a trip to England in 2002, she began work on A Marginal Life (Well-Lived), inspired by the music of Jarvis Cocker and Pulp. The novel was completed in 2003, and is undergoing rewrites with hopes of publication in the near future.

Also in 2003, she met and fell in love with an Italian accountant named Alessandro. She married him in 2004. This necessitated her arrival in Italy and she has lived there ever since. After several months of working for language schools and writing blog entries for her family in the US to read, new story ideas began to develop.

Finally, in 2007, she began work on a new project, inspired by her love/hate relationship with her new home. The novel Ask Me if I'm Happy was completed in 2009.

The novel was released November 15th, 2010, and Kimberly is presently at work on her next project, 27 Stages. In the meantime, she is releasing a prequel to Ask Me if I'm Happy, a novella titled "Alternate Rialto".

"Ask Me If I'm Happy" is one of those books that grabs your attention on the first page and doesn't let you go until the last page. If you have ever been to Italy, it will make you homesick to go back and if you've never been there it will make you want to go. You fall in love with the characters and can't wait to see how it ends. Then,you find yourself not wanting to put it down. Loved this book.

Ask me If I'm Happy ...A great book to read! Once I started I could not stop until I was finished reading it. First it made me want to learn Italian. The language is so beautiful and the way she described Italy...I felt as if I was literally there. Secondly, It was nice to see how love can sometimes come so easy in your life, but baggage from your past doesn't allow you to see whats right in front of you.I also enjoyed how these two people crossed paths as strangers but were already connected in that its-a-small-world kinda way. As I read this book, I secretly hope these two made it and did not fall victim to past failed relationship issues and that Miss Emily stayed in Italy. This is a MUST read!!!!!

This is an absolutely beautiful book, a seamless blending of romance and literary fiction. The characters are well-portrayed and easy to relate to. The settings come alive and this is where the author's first-hand experience really shines. My only caveat would be to keep your Italian dictionary close at hand! (Though the inclusion of some Italian words and phrases does lend a wonderful sense of realism to the overall story.)
