Welcome to my blog, dear reader. I’m very happy to see you here. I am a dieselpunk author, I write historical fantasy stories set in the 1920s, both in the United States and Europe.

On my blog you’ll find news about my stories and articles about the 1920s. I particularly like social history, exploring how people lived in that time, what they felt, what they thought. You’ll also find the occasional book review.

Please, have a look around and maybe leave a comment. I’d love to know what you think.

WHO I AM

macchina da scrivere

I was born in Isola della Scala (Verona – Italy) where I still live. I started writing at nine – blame it to my teacher’s effort to turn her students into readers – and in the 1990s I contributed steadily to magazines and independent publishers on both sides of the Atlantic.
After a pause, in early 2010s, I went back to writing with a new mindset. The internet allowed me to get in touch with fellow authors around the globe, hone my writing techniques in online workshops and finally find my home in the dieselpunk community. It was a game chancer for me, that’s for sure!

Since 2010 I’ve been working at a trilogy set in Chicago in 1926, historically as accurate as possible but also (as all my stories) definitely fantasy. I’m currently seeking representation for the first book in the Ghost Trilogy.
In 2016, my first book came out, Give in to the Feeling.

I’ve worked for QuiEdit, publisher and bookseller in Verona, for the last forteen years.
