About Tricia Pimental

Brooklyn-born Tricia Pimental moved to Portugal in 2012, where she found rural life so idyllic she wrote a piece for the Living the Dream section of International Living Magazine. Today she serves as their Portugal Correspondent. The former actress and Toastmaster has written three award-winning books: Rabbit Trail: How a Former Playboy Bunny Found Her Way, Slippery Slopes, and A Movable Marriage. Other writing credits include two travel books for International Living: The Old-World Charms of Portugal and Escape to Portugal, and a 15-part video series entitled Portugal 101. Tricia has discovered one of the best parts about living in Europe is the ability to sample the culture (especially all that food and beverage) of many countries via road trips. She and her husband Keith—and their intrepid Maltese, Carson—have traveled through Spain, France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Denmark, and more, as well as Ireland, Eastern Europe, Russia, and the Balkans. After renting in various regions of the country, Tricia and Keith now own a quinta in central Portugal. She blogs at

    well, i must be totally dense as i clicked on every link i could find and couldn’t get more than the top half of a pic and the comments box… is there your writing somewhere??? maybe it’s just too hot her and my brain is melting! hope you are well.

    must thank you again for your gracious and generous sharing of those editors notes. i am still reading the 50 [yikes] pages, and it’s wonderful. both because she uses the same search/replace that i always use in a final edit [so i felt proud], and shares some of the warnings from that list i set you [weak words] BUT she caught me on ‘since’! most of the time i used it correctly but a couple of times i did use it instead of because.. ‘well, since you wouldn’t do it…’ it is colloquial, but i did it unconsciously so that’s the rub. was great to catch that. cheers!!

    anyway, it’s labor day which is a big so what in my world. back to work. xoxo

    PS when are you coming here exactly? and what date is your surgery??

    • Sorry, “Open” not “Opn.” I am bleary from revisions and book cover work, but making progress on all fronts.

      Love you, honey.
