Via del frantoio 79
Studied Italian at university for 11 years; did Honours, Masters and PhD in Italian literature. In Italy I teach English as a foreign language and have written a text on English for Italians (a simple guide to English Grammar). I have a two-year-old daughter so my writing time is confined to when she is asleep. I am in the process of writing a novel, semi-completed, for which I am seeking a publisher. It is my second attempt at writing a novel - the first was when I was twenty - it was called the Tea Company and my university friends enjoyed it thoroughly, but then the book started getting too depressing and I couldn't change the outcome, so I abandoned it halfway. I hope my 2nd novel, the title of which I'm not revealing yet for fear of poaching, will have a lot of success. Is anyone out there interested in taking a chance?
