A thriller that leads to a stunning end.

"This was a wonderful collaboration with you and thank you for letting me help you achieve your goal of publishing the English edition of this unique story. Set in the context of the turbulent times we grew up in and then forward to present day, those of us who remember how it was then and the different paths we took to where are now can relate to the complexities of choices and decisions your characters faced in those difficult years." Allison Whitmore

“How long will I have to wait for a real answer from her, to have a new opportunity? Maybe I'll wait forever. My mouth is bitter, I'm not hungry and not even sleepy. I get up and punch the wall hard. Is it possible that for everyone, even for criminals, there is a rehabilitation except for me? But what is the difference between me and a criminal in the end? 

I feel without breath. Maybe it’s better to take a walk around here, and if the pizzeria at the corner is still open, I'll have a pizza and drink a beer. I want to get drunk not to think. Milena will always have that horrible memory of me. If she wants to meet me, how can I deal with it, proving as I am now, if in the end she is right: am I that different from how I was then? I just want the fresh air of this September evening. I go out and, while I close the door, I think that the doors left locked inside our soul can open again when they want to, even if we delude ourselves into thinking we have thrown away the key.” 

"As I wrote No Steps on the Snow with my left hand, when an accident occurred to me and I was motionless for a couple of months, Italian literary critics use to say that this book was written with the left hand, the hand of the heart."

I was born in Rome, where I lived during my childhood. Then I moved to United States of America where I lived a significant period of my adolescence, attending St. Francis School in Manchester, New Hampshire. Then I came back to Italy, Rome, where I finished my classical studies. Even in the professional life I have lived experiences in different contexts, which have enriched my "baggage". Working in the public sector I have dealt, inter alia, with the International Relations and Cultural Exchanges with Foreign Countries. In the private life, I'm married with two children. I was always inclined towards writing and this passion has led me to take part in various literary competitions, winning many important national awards. I wrote the following books: 

NO STEPS ON THE SNOW (English Edition published in June 2015)The Italian edition was published in 2010 and the book has been a cultural event for the city of Rome in summer 2012. It won the National Literary Award Circe 2013. It has been presented in the most important Italian Book Fair PiĆ¹libripiĆ¹liberi. 


A SHADOW ON MERRIMACK RIVER My first English Edition published in 2013 available in USA and worldwide, has had four/five stars review from American literary blogs and readers. It's Italian Version “UN’OMBRA SUL FIUME MERRIMACK” is an Amazon Bestselling in the genders of historical fiction and thrillers and noir. 


RACHEL’S CHILD (Italian Edition) My second thriller published in 2012 and presented successfully at the Lamezia Terme Book Fair. 


THE FOUNTAIN OF THE FROGS (Italian Edition) It was published in June 2015. The thriller is set in the ancient and magic centre of Rome. It won the National Literary Award Perseide 2014. 

DEWDROPS SHORT NOVELS (Italian Edition) is a collection of my short novels, that investigate the intimate sphere of human feelings, and have won national literary awards. 

My Italian editions will soon be translated in English. To a journalist who asked me what is writing for me, I answered: “Writing is my haven, my everything.”
