Before she learned how to read, Angela Nickerson aspired to be a tap dancing nurse. However, once her mom taught her to read, Angela’s medical aspirations expired. Her favorite books were those set in “the olden days” in places far more exotic than Dallas, Texas. In her thirties Angela translated that passion for history and travel into her first book, A Journey into Michelangelo’s Rome.
Angela closely follows her mantra: just GO! She traveled to the USSR with her grandparents. She won a Fulbright Memorial Fund award and spent a month in Japan. She has taught writing in Korea as well as in cyberspace. She has marched in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, escorted a variety of performing groups through the US and Europe, and jumps on a plane any time she can.
Angela married an Italian-American with memories of playing as a child at Ostia Antica and romping through the Colosseum. Now she enjoys traveling to Italy several times a year – often escorting small groups of her readers.

I am the author of A Journey into Michelangelo's Rome, a travel book about the artist and the city. I've traveled extensively in Italy -- particularly Rome, Florence, and Venice. I often take small groups to Italy, too. I can make suggestions for places to stay as well as things to do. In addition, I have traveled through much of Europe and Asia and can offer general travel tips.
