Adventure in Malasorte Castle


An abandoned castle, a valley infested by evil spirits, and a cursed family … an exciting new adventure for the River Hawks!

Twelve-year-old Izzy is excited to be spending the summer holidays with her Italian grandmother. She eagerly listens to spine-tingling tales of the evil spirits that once infested Val De Monio, in awe of the Guardians who did battle with them. But when Gran tells her about a Mazzapeghoul, a wicked demon, still inhabiting Malasorte Castle, Izzy starts to doubt whether her stories are true.

When her new-found Italian friends suggest spending a night in Malasorte Castle to prove it isn't haunted, she jumps at the chance to join them. But things start going bump in the night, and they begin to wonder if the Mazzapeghoul is more than just a local myth.

Why did the last members of the family flee the castle in 1932, leaving it empty and desolate? Can Izzy and her friends solve the puzzle and break the curse on the castle before it's too late?

Born in England, I have been living in Italy for the last 27 years. While it was easy to get used to the food, the climate and culture were quite a different matter! And I do miss Marmite and Cheddar cheese!

I work as a professional freelance translator - I have translated an Italian writer's book and screenplay into English. The screenplay is currently winning awards in America! 

Walls of Silence is my first novel, and I've published two short stories. I've also written two children's books that I hope to publish later this year. All my books and stories are translated into Italian.

I also work hard to make people aware of domestic violence and how women in these situations can find help, partly due to personal experience and partly due to the chauvanistic attitude men still have towards women in Italy. In fact, a part of the proceeds from Walls of Silence (and its Italian equivalent) will be donated to women's centre in the UK and Italy.
