Stories are never bad or good in themselves. They resonate with the listeners or they do not. Either way it is fine. I am grateful if someone hears or reads my stories. They live through you the readers and/or listeners. I have stories to tell.

I've been writing all my life, first in journalism and then in corporate communications. Death on a Dig is my first mystery.
I've travelled in the UK, continental Europe, India, Mexico and Central America. Before apartheid was defeated in South Africa, I spent five years in Mozambique as an international volunteer, and I recently volunteered again for six months to work with a small social agency in northern India.
Girls of Summer: In Their Own League, my only published non-fiction book, resulted from my work as a researcher with CTV's national public affairs program W5.
I live in Toronto, Canada and am focusing now on writing and epublishing mystery fiction.

Mercy finished writing her first vampire novel when she was in middle school, and hasn’t stopped writing about them since. She loves stories about the paranormal because monsters are scary, but less scary than real people. Or at least less depressing.

Gabriele Damiani, scovato da Aliberti grazie a un concorso, maneggia la fantapolitica con impegno e passione, plasma la materia e forgia un thriller che si basa, principalmente, su ritratti ironici ma crudeli. Non è il solito commissario e non è il solito crimine di provincia. Politico, asciutto, è un nero intenso che fa male dalla prima pagina all’ultima. La prosa scorre rapida ma il sapore amaro dei fatti resta dentro. Ma sarà davvero tutto frutto della fantasia?
