Pohlman and her husband, Tim, were about to end their 18-year marriage when they moved to Italy on business. They enrolled their children, then 14 and 11, in international school and began learning Italian and living an Italian lifestyle. By doing so, they became members of the same team again, and their marriage both survived and thrived.

Pohlman was born in Dayton and grew up in New Jersey. She met her husband while both were students at the University of Dayton and taught in Centerville for several years. They now live in Phoenix but they visit Ohio twice a year. They may visit more often inow because their son has signed to play volleyball at the Ohio State University.

Mel Corroto, co-owner of Beehive Books, said in a news release that guests will be invited to enjoy a glass of Italian wine in the spirit of Pohlman's book.
