What was your favorite book as a child?

My favourite book was “The Lord of the Rings,” but I loved every fantasy book that I could get my hands on. There’s an Italian children’s book series called “Fairy Oak,” by Elisabetta Gnone, that I adored. A new book in that series was released in 2020, and it was the highlight of the year for me, because I still am a child.

Do you remember the original reason or motivation why you started writing creatively?

I think writing for me evolved naturally from being an avid reader. I’ve always been interested in fiction as a way to understand the world and to expand what I can experience. Writing gives me an excuse to always keep learning.

What was the most adventurous or thrilling thing you ever did/experienced?

Definitely moving abroad on my own, twice.

Do you listen to music while reading or writing?

I make playlists for everything that I write. I like creating a soundtrack for myself that I can listen to while I’m brainstorming, or when I need to get back into a character’s head. But when I'm actually writing, I can focus more if I write in silence.
