My copy of “Deaths in Venice”!


Finally my copy of the anthology “Deaths in Venice”, containing my short story “A Rose” has reached Sweden! Happy and proud, congratulations to the publisher, Carteggi Letterari Edizioni from Messina, and the curator (and powerful writress) Laura Liberale!

P.S. The photo in the backgroud is a shot by my husband and it was taken at the grand Tjolöholm Castle, where the externals of “Melancholia” by Lars von Trier were shot. Though it would make a significant background…

New anthology “Deaths in Venice”

I am very glad and proud to announce the launching of a new anthology curated by the very elegant Laura Liberale for Carteggi Letterari book publisher. The book is available in Italian only, at present.

I am particularly satisfied with it because of the quality of the other contributors, and also because I am very fond of the story I wrote for it. It is called “A Rose” and I owe its inspiration to a friend from New York that I am very fond of.

The book can be purchased here. But again: it is in Italian :)

Presentation of my novel “Di morire libera” in Naples


A lot is happening around my novel “Di morire libera” (“To Die Free“) as I had a presentation of the book in the amazing location of Castel dell’Ovo in Naples, with a full house and a very interesting panel! I feel blessed and proud, as the city mayor Mr. de Magistris granted the city patronage!

Many articles have been published about this event, and there is also a nice TV interview with me :)
