Feature 2

Now available - "Sympathy for the Zingara", a creepy story inspired by a true encounter during a recent visit to Florence. I survived thanks to my lover (many know she has saved my life before) but I'm sure others are not so lucky.

Sympathy for the Zingara

Soon to be married, a young couple spend some time apart as the final test of their love. Tony visits Florence, where he offends a beggar with his lack of compassion.

He begins to dissolve, melting away piece by piece, and his only chance to see his Emilee again depends on his ability to change.

The Zingara is real and she is ruthless and she will have her revenge!

My favorite story and the one you don’t want to miss!
