Children’s books

My wish to write fiction came true when I became a grandmother and had this idea of creating stories for my grandchildren. In each book, I try to bring in words, drawings and features of that grandson or granddaughter who will be the protagonist. Thus, in the “The mystery of the scratched table“, Julian is a kid full of imagination. In “There’s a clever creature in my back garden“, Luisa is a disciplined and confident girl. In “Frank’s Secret“, the protagonist of the same name is the youngest child who has to negotiate everything with his brothers. In “Bubalino, the flying buffalo“, Isabel is at the same time coauthor and protagonist as she is the one that imagined the story. One more story will come for granddaughter Catarina. The grandchildren are proud, although I take so long to write every story that when the book is ready, the child is much older than the protagonist. However, the impact of this creative project exceeded my initial motivation, as today I got to know hundreds of children who listen and comment on my stories with enthusiasm and affection and who ask me to continue writing.
