About the Author
After receiving her degree in Literature at the University of Massachusetts, Callie packed her suitcases filled with ideals and began a two year adventure in the archipelago of Cape Verde. The rich experience provided her the opportunity to return independently to merge her understanding of the culture and "down-to-Earth" realities of life in Cape Verde with her passion for writing. Through this book, Callie hopes to offer the reader an informed and personal guide to the fascinating diversity of this island nation.
