Hi. I’m Roberta, an indie author and self-proclaimed bookworm. Books have been my passion and best friends since I learned to read at five years old, and the more I read, the more I felt like I too could write those stories that swam in my head.
After keeping all my stories tucked safely inside a drawer, in 2012 I discovered the world of indie publishing and decided to get over my fears and share my books with the world. I have been a published author since January 2013 and have become a member of an amazing community of writers and creatives who share my passions for books.
I’m Italian born and bred, but have a special passion for Ireland and for the English language (to the point that, when I was in high school, I used to love reading a new page of the English dictionary every day, just to learn some new words I didn’t know—yes, I was a bit of a nerd back then). My books are written in English, although I’ve started working on translating them into Italian too. I hardly ever read books in Italian anymore, as I prefer to read them in English, and I love watching the original versions of American movies and TV series, as I’m quite a fan of all the different English accents.
After helping a couple of author friends and offering to proofread or beta edit their manuscripts, I realized it was something I really enjoyed doing (once upon a time, when I was a little girl, my dream was to become a teacher one day), so I decided to offer the services to other authors too.
