On May 16, 2019 my sisters and I boarded a train to Toronto. It was a lovely ride with fascinating and friendly passengers, including the Governor General of Canada. I love the train and the beautiful scenery of lakes, picturesque towns and glorious trees. We arrived in Toronto in the afternoon and wandered the downtown core before heading to the Columbus Centre where the launch was taking place. What a gorgeous venue with replicas of famous Italian statues and art work. My publisher Inanna Publications and Guernica Editions organized a lovely festivity celebrating six Canadian women writers. Bravo to my fellow writers Harriet Bernstein, Arianna Dagnino, Valentina Gal, Vivian Meyer and Giovanna Riccio. I was so honoured to share the stage with these amazing women. And now my first full-length novel “The Allspice Bath” is out in the world and I am so grateful to Inanna Publications, my family, friends and readers for supporting me on this incredible journey. With love and gratitude.
