Travelling around the world as an astronaut or an air hostess is a dream she has nurtured since childhood. However, in her teens, she realised that she preferred literature and philosophy to maths, physics, and chemistry; that piloting an aircraft would be much more difficult than driving a car; and that air hostesses were usually taller than she was.
The study of law during her master's degree course in Business Economics in Venice (Italy) convinced her that the diplomatic career was out of question too. At twenty-six, she left Italy to polish her English in London and there she married an Algerian man (Sami), worked in many different jobs; and attended many courses, including one in Counselling Skills.
Following a few years in France, where their daughter Sofia was born, she is now growing roots in Folkestone (UK). Here she frequented a few courses on Creative Writing. Her love for Science Fiction, and the realisation that writing would allow her to fulfil her childhood dream of travelling, although just with her imagination, convinced her to teleport herself to London to attend a one-day workshop on what makes SF tick, led by bestselling SF author David Wingrove. Still eager to learn how to hone her craft, she also followed an intensive writing course with renowned author Gay Hendricks.
Her short story "A New Beginning" appeared in The Folkestone 2014 Anthology and her novelette "Homecoming" was published in the SF magazine Nebula Rift in 2014.
Her novella science fiction novella “Across Spacetime” is available now. She is currently working on its sequel and on editing the magazine Storyteller's stories as Deputy Editor.

I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.
This is the first steampunk book I’ve ever read and I’m hooked. As I agree with what the previous reviewers have written, including having to award only 4 stars for editing issues, I'm not going to bother you by repeating the same things.
I'll just add that what I've enjoyed the most is the amazing world the author has built and that I look forward to spending more time there with Nina and her gang.
