I am deeply grateful to the jury of the historic literary prize for female writers "Il Paese delle Donne" who have – in their twenty-fourth edition – awarded my novel "Michelina Di Cesare, briganta" published by Lorusso Editore with an Honorable Mentionin the Fiction section. It is a prestigious recognition that honors me and makes me happy because it helps to spread the story of this special woman. Thank you to "Il Paese delle donne"!
Please rejoice with me: my feature film project extracted from my novel about bandit Michelina Di Cesare was ranked FIRST among the 226 submitted so it is granted a fund of 20,000 Euro for the writing of the screenplay!
I am honored and moved with the recognition this story receives and I am hopeful the right producers will make me shoot the film once the screenplay is completed!
So nice for me to be invited to participate to the first book fair in the town of Skepplanda, organized by Bibliotekets vänner i norra Ale! I got to read one of my stories to a very attentive audience, and I am glad the provincial paper Alekuriren chose to pick a photo with me for their coverage!
