Activity… - My interview by Mark Andersen. If you want to know what I think about fairies, please have a look at the interview. What the fairies think of me, I cannot say... ;) :)…

Dear Nightmare,

I cannot understand why you are so mean and cruel with me. You’ve haunted me for so many nights and I always welcomed you like a good friend.

Then you became unfair and unkind to me, showing more and more anger – almost hatred toward me. Why? What have I done to deserve your hatred?

Twisted Passion
The story is very short- I will not say much about it. It is a letter to a nightmare. I woke up in the night and wrote it :) It is inspired by Beauty and the Beast, but here the Beast is a Nightmare...
Many sincere thanks to Esther Puche for allowing me to use her beautiful artwork to illustrate the story. She is one of my favorite artists and the story is dedicated to her.

The radio broadcast on that evening was about the famous rock singer that was almost as popular as King Elvis. The guy had the mysterious, dark kind of beauty of an underworld god and his last show “Magic Umbrellas” was such a tremendous success that all teen girls were in love with him and most teen boys wanted to be like him.

With such an adoring fandom, I was expecting listenership figures to break records and I was prepared for anything – apart from what actually happened that night.

This is a story I wrote a few years back. It is a credit to the "Sandman"- the Dream King so as he is described in mythology, fairy tales, comics (Neil Gaiman's Sandman is one of my favorite comics). Here the "Dustman" was mainly inspired from a fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen called Ole-Luk-Oie, the Dream-God.
I give once more the link of the story:…
Let the dream-king open his umbrella and enjoy the journey to dreamland.

Thank you so much for your kind support to my work <3… -Many thanks to Paulo Britto for this beautiful review of RED NIGHTMARE by Danilo Antoniucci and me.… -Many thanks to Paulo Britto for this beautiful review of RED NIGHTMARE by Danilo Antoniucci and me.
A perfume is a weapon, my grandmother said. No matter how hard I tried, I could not understand what she meant by this.

         To me, a perfume was but a delight. Especially our traditional family perfume that my grand mother favored above all the others; the one my mum would wear with her fabulous dresses and beautiful jewels. In my little girl’s eyes, mom in her glamorous outfits was like one of the fairy queens in the fairy tales she was reading to me. The jewels sparkles were a wonder, akin to fireworks, and the scent of the perfume would fill my mind with all sorts of marvelous dreams.

         When I was five, I used to steal some of mom’s perfume when she was out. I did not mean ill; I just longed to sense fragrance-incited dream too.

         Not surprisingly, on my early teens, when I started going out, I would wear this perfume too. Like my grandmother, I loved changing perfumes; I was excited by the experience of a new scent on me. But mom’s perfume, the one that made me dream so much when I was a child, always remained my favorite. It was the perfume I wore for special occasions.

         I wore this fragrance on the evening of our first kiss.
Poisonous Sortilege
The story was inspired by a famous perfume; it is set in Venice and it is like a dark version of Cinderella -using a perfume instead of a shoe to seduce her "King of Spades". I hope you will enjoy it.
I had only a few days to write the story. Even with so much pressure and headache, I had a very strong feeling while writing this story. Unfortunately, I cannot know what people feel when reading it, but I hope that some of the magic I experienced reaches the readers. If this happens, I will be happy- the headaches will not be for nothing.
Many sincere thanks to Adam Henry Carriere for his support to my work and for publishing this story even though it is twice the length he usually allows in DM. Many thanks to Inbal Dror for kindly giving permission to use their beautiful photo to illustrate the story. And many thanks to all you, who will read it.
POISONOUS SORTILEGE is dedicated to my collaborator and dear friend VURORE.

The clock chimes three times. Trying to ignore it, I grasp my cup of coffee and bring it to my lips. Before I have time to take a sip, the white rabbit emerges from the coffee. The rabbit darts a glance at the clock then stares at me. “Time to go,” he says and fastens the clock to the pocket of his waistcoat with a golden chain. As we dive into the coffee, I wonder how a clock as tall as the room can fit into the miniscule pocket of the rabbit and how the thin golden chain can hold it there. I am about to ask the rabbit, but the brown curtain is lifted and we are at a theatre stage that looks like a courtroom. The three judges at the bench are birds in black robes, the sleeves of which are adorned with three rows of red hearts. The judge sitting at the centre is a crow and wears golden-framed glasses; the judge on his left is a duck and the one on his right is a sort of a woodpecker crowned with a huge red crest. All three remind me of the cartoons I used to watch on TV when I was a little girl.

“Silence,” caws the crow-judge in a raucous voice while the woodpecker hammers his beak on the table. In the courtroom there is no audience (the white rabbit and I are out of the stage so we hardly count as court audience) so I don’t see why the crow-judge demands silence. “Robin Hatter, will you stand up?”

This story was written for an anthology that would honor the anniversary of Lewis Caroll. The editor kept post-poning the anthology and it is not yet out. I thought it was a pity to waste this story, so I sent it to Danse Macabre. One reason why I wanted this story to be published was that Michael Cheval had read and enjoyed it and he kindly gave permission to use his artwork to illustrate it. Michael Cheval is an artist I admire a lot - to have a story with his artwork published was a great honor for me.
The other reason is that I really enjoyed writing this story. For some reason, all this crazy stuff came out of my head and was tranfered on paper as swiftly as the Ace came out of Lord Cheshire Cat's sleeve in the story.
I hope you will enjoy it- it's not too long either.
Many sincere thanks to Michael Cheval for allowing me to use his magnificent artwork with the story and to Adam Henry Carrière for publishing the story so fast.

About me. Right...
When I was a young child, two things happened: -I inadvertently swallowed ink.
-I had a wonderful grand mother who cooked the best cakes in the world and read me lots and lots of fairy tales. When she had nothing to read, she invented fairy tales. Please note that my mom was pretty good at telling fairy tales as well and my father is a journalist.
All this is equivalent to belong in a family of wizards and falling in a cauldron with magic potions by accident.
With ink streaming in my veins and my brain filled with fairy tale stuff (I was extremely disappointed that fairies did not actually exist and very unhappy that Mary Poppins was not my nanny), it's hardly surprising that I deviated from normal.
Fortunately I was affected by no mental disease.
I just love writing.It's my magical power...maybe my curse as well.
I am a co-editor in French SF magazine GALAXIES. Link:
