Author has written 23 stories for Final Fantasy VIII, and Final Fantasy X.

Time to update this.
I'm an Italian 32 years old girl who love writing, reading and translating. Last summer I started writing in English too, and I really loved that experience. I hope my stories reflect that love.

Many of you may know me because I contacted several authors to have permission to translate their stories and make them known to the Italian public. This has given me a deeper insight in the stories I translated, discovering several things I didn't notice while reading them, and teaching me so many things about something I would like to do for my life.

My stories are mostly in Italian, of course. I didn't publish them all here. If you know Italian, though, I'd like to know what you think about them.


In my story The Winter Rose I used the Boboli Gardens in Florence, Italy, as a reference for the castle's park. If you're interested, here are some links about it:

  1. official site
  2. virtual tour (you need QuickTime)
  3. Italian Wikipedia page (it has lots more pictures than the English one)
  4. English Wikipedia page (there's a picture of the Neptune fountain here!)
