An annual grant from the Swedish Authors’ Fund!

I am surprised and moved that the Commission for the Sveriges Författarfond (Swedish Writers’ Fund) has judged me worthy of an annual literature fund! My new novel “Klara” will be ready in both Italian and Swedish this autumn!

Public Financing for the Translation of my New Novel “Klara”!

What a surprise! Who would have imagined that my new novel “Klara” would be selected by the jury of the writers’ guild Författarcentrum Väst to be among the donees of the fund allocated by the Region of Västra Götaland to writers in foreign languages? I am extremely thrilled that the accomplished translator Helena Monti is going to translate − from Italian to Swedish − some ten pages of “Klara” next year, which I will use to find a local publisher in Sweden!

Online Facebook presentation of my novel “To Die Free”!

Supernice presentation of my novel!! Any of you that understands Italian is most welcome to watch 😉 ❤

New review about “To Die Free”!

I know it makes little sense to post a review in Italian in this site, but I could not resist the tempation of at least show the incredible beauty of this image that was painted by the same person who wrote this piece: Eliana Como.
Her review was recently published by the web paper Popoff quotidiano.

I am speechless because she really understood what I meant with Michelina Di Cesare and why she is so important to me.

And this picture really reveals it!

Interviewed by Vatican Radio

A couple of shots taken during my interview about my novel “Di morire libera” [“To Die Free”] at Radio Vaticana with Rosario Tronnolone, in the company of Meg Mason and Mara Miceli.

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 🙂
