Facchini Giuliana

Where I live: I live between Lake Garda and the city of Verona, a stone’s throw from the river Adige. Piazza Erbe, throbbing heart of the city, winks at Shakespeare who decided to set Julietta’s house not distant from there. The lake is clear or restless depending on the wind and the wild bank of the Adige whispers tales of ancient duties and old windmills.

The kind of books I write: I write adventure books because that’s what I like to read, for pre-teens and teens between 11 ad 16. Perhaps because I am not that grown-up myself. Very few people can tell a stories and for my novels I draw inspiration from those storytellers who have the ability of bewitching and capture their audience.
