Francesca Maggi My nom de plume is Francesca Maggi and I use it when I perform too, so it’s my nome in arte as well! [It’s an inside joke that Readers will just have to figure out for themselves].

1. Why did you move abroad?
As I state in my book, I had wanted to live in Italy as long as I could remember (despite getting sick from the water or being cramped with 3 siblings in a Fiat 500 in the scorching heat when I was 6 yrs old).  So, I started working with Italy just 3 days after graduation (moving there on an internship). After 1 year, I landed jobs in New York that brought me back repeatedly (and with expense accounts!). I finally got a job that sent me to Milan in 1992, and I’ve never looked back (well, okay…every time the utilities bills roll in, but…)

One of our expat interviewees is back with an ebook he wrote about life in Spain. Find out what led him to write a book the hardest part of the process and what the Wagoners are planning next!

Alan Wagoner -Wagoners AbroadI’m Alan, and I’m half of Wagoners Abroad.  I’m the funny half (rim shot).  I’m from the U.S.A (North Carolina), and am currently living in Almuñécar Spain with my wife and two kids.

1. Why did you move abroad?
The big reason was to continue our dream of living abroad, and experiencing foreign cultures.  Secondary reasons were, getting out of the Rat Race, reconnecting with each other.

To Hellas and Back Lana PenroseA former Australian expat in Greece, Lana Penrose is a bestselling author twice published by Penguin/Viking. She has worked as a record company promotions manager, music journalist and television producer, and worked briefly with Simon Cowell amongst others of the pop elite.

1. Why did you move abroad?
I moved to Greece because my partner was offered a position to run an Athenian radio station. Being a former MTV producer, I looked upon it as a potential sun-filled sabbatical where I’d spend a year unraveling the mysteries of the universe whilst popping olives into my mouth. Things didn’t quite work out that way!
