A sudden phone call gives an unexpected and heart-breaking turn to Amber’s life: a car crash wipes away her world as she knows it, wrecking the very meaning of her life. For endless days and nights, Amber lets herself fade away in a pit of desperation: how to overcome the deepest grief? How to find a sense in living?
Pushed by the affection and determination of her best friend, Rachel, Amber will decide to look for a way back to life. She will embark on a solitary and unexpected journey through the eternal landscapes of Africa, where she will walk through places, cultures, peoples, and heartwarming encounters with the wild animals of the Savannah.
AFRICA is an intimate quest to explore the truth about people: the ancient beauty of the environment and the concrete struggles of its inhabitants will force Amber to look deeper inside her soul and rediscover her priorities. She will be constantly pushed and pulled between astonishing shows of nature and stabbing emotions, in a revealing travel across Southern Africa.
Wrong Day For a Kill is the first short story in the science-fiction series Superhero Stories: The W Series. W is a superhero like no other, who struggles between the hunger for Justice and the need to use violence to achieve that very ideal of justice.
Where is W running to tonight? Who is being chased?
Meet W in the first of a long series of adventures.
Everything is perfectly organized in Amber’s life: her days at work, in the offices of a prestigious magazine in New York; her time with her beloved husband Mike, and their adventurous vacations around the world.
When Amber finds out she is pregnant, her immediate reaction is sheer denial: this can’t be true. She always knew she would want children one day, but now it feels so sudden, so unexpected. She tries to play for time, but Mike’s reaction to the news, with pure delight and anticipation, is the exact opposite. Wasn’t he happy before? Was it all a lie?
The news of the pregnancy propagates like circular water waves, from close family to friends, to colleagues, to acquaintances. At each circle, Amber further detaches from the new role society is imposing on her, and she refuses to comply with the expectation of full submission to the child. At each circle, new voices join the choir of enthusiast celebrations, obstructing Amber’s restless attempts to keep control on her life, to remain who she is without losing herself, her husband, or her job.
NINE explores the role of women in today’s society, the meaning of modern motherhood and how it impacts the relationship between a woman and her companion, her workplace, her friends, her family.
Reviewers of NINE say it is a “remarkably candid” and “eye-opening take on the demons and fears of pregnancy”, a powerful answer to “what we think it means to be a woman today”.

All patients have problems, and Doctor Alexander Williams knows it: that’s why they come back every week, they sit on a sofa in his psychoanalysis practice and they tell him their stories. But what is it about Sylvia Fischer that he has never been able to quite grasp? Maybe the way she never mentions her life before deciding to marry her husband: a boring, cheating, rich New York boy. Or the way she talks, with a deep voice and a British accent, even if she was born in Texas. Or maybe Dr. Williams can feel the pale halo of depression that surrounds her.
One day, Sylvia Fischer tells Dr. Williams a new story: there’s a man she’s been in love with for many years, who now wants her to run away with him. And away she goes.
Sylvia Fischer doesn’t simply leave, though, she disappears: no words are left for her husband, her two-year-old daughter, her parents. No one knows anything about that man from Sylvia’s past, but Alexander Williams wants to believe that she has found her happiness.
Until everything collapses.
New York is the host and the beating heart of this novel: the city will guide the reader through its streets, rivers and parks, inhabited by living souls and roaming ghosts of the past.
A radically different episode will open more questions and reveal more secrets on W’s past.
