Q: You are Italian. Why do you write in English?
A: Sometimes I say the reason is the lack of opportunities in my country. But the real reason is the challenge.
I have always read books in English, but writing in English is not the same thing. I never thought I could do it. If someone had told me a year ago, I would have laughed. This is a great milestone in the path of my life.
I do write in Italian as well, mostly horror and dark fantasy stories, but generally they ask me to cut sex scenes, or change the gender of one of the characters…
Q: Why do you write?
A: Probably because reality does not satisfy me enough.
Q: What kind of character do you prefer?
A: I have a weakness for a kind of rough character, hard, hurt, and betrayed, but ready to open up again to love. I think I'm this way, too.
Q: Do you believe in happily ever afters?
A: I strongly believe in them. Writing, I’m trying to create a new reality where a happy ending is always possible. Unfortunately, I have traveled so much, and I have known so many people without finding real love. I console myself thinking that if I had found it, I wouldn’t feel the need to write about it so badly.
