Profile Information

So, first things first: I'm not a native English speaker. My first language is Italian, second language is French, and I had my first conversation in English when I was way past the legal age for drinking and gambling. 

I worked many years as a travel writer and published hundreds of articles and stories for Italian travel magazines. Then life took a turn, and I ended up in a different industry and living in an English-speaking country (UK, and now Malta). 

I guess I envy all you guys a lot, you know? The street vocabulary you absorbed, the ear for the rythm in your language, your instinctive choice for an adjective I'll never have.  So I'll try harder, and count on your patience for the sheer number of unforced errors in my prose. Which is probably like playing tennis vs a dumb beginner: not much fun and the occasional mishit that turns into an unlikely winner. 

Wish I could double the points you get for reviewing my works! 

Anyway, glad to be here. And don't be too gentle with my stuff.

My favourite modern writers: David Foster Wallace, Gunther Grass, Martin Amis.

Best,

Marco
