Interviste, LE NEWS

For my readers abroad! Per i miei lettori all’estero…

Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I am Italian and was born in Rome. In my adolescence I spent a meaningful time in USA, Manchester, New Hampshire. For family reasons I came back to Rome, where I ended my classical studies. I’m married with two children and my life has always been full of “duties”, like all mothers have. The house, the husband, the children and an interesting work as functionary in the Educational Field and in cultural exchanges. It was a great effort to manage all this. And in my soul I have always had inspirations that only asked to become stories, but there was never time for that. Until something happened… I had an accident and I was motionless for two months. That’s when I started writing with my left hand, the only one I could move in those days. And from then I never stopped from writing. I published seven books and an anthology, three English editions and many important literary awards

What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
My latest book is an Italian edition “Una morte sola non basta”, that will be the English edition “One death is not enough”. It deals with violence on children and the plot is set in Rome, Italy, from the 50ties to the 70ies. It is defined by Italian literary critics, a great neo-realistic book.

Do you have any unusual writing habits?
Well, for me it’s important to write always in the same place, that is my studio, maybe because from that window I can see the Bay on the Mediterranean Sea, with its magical scenery. When I need an inspiration I look at the sunset, discovering that each day dies in its own way, like every human being does…
