A Bit About Me

I am an Ireland-based  Italian writer of murder mysteries. Since a child, I always loved to give life in ink to the colourful characters playing in my mind, but only recently I found the courage to share them with a bigger audience.

I currently live in the little village of Balrothery, in North County Dublin, and I share my home with my two dogs, some foster who comes and goes, my two daughters and my husband who patiently shares me with my Mac.




Black Souls

“Lola never met her father, and her mother took her own life when she was still a toddler. Raised by her aunt Mara, a callous woman who never showed any affection towards her niece. As soon she turns, Lola moves to Malta where she meets her future husband, Fergus. The two of them will ultimately build their dream life in Ireland. Lola’s past seems forever forgotten, until the day her aunt Mara dies under suspicious circumstances and her cousin Giulia vehemently discourages her from being involved.  Uncertain about what to do, in the end, Lola flies over to Ponte Alto with her husband.

The old town had not changed much, and neither had the twisted dynamics inside the Kopfler family. Lola is transported back twenty years, and the ancient feeling of being an outsider is back. But that is not all: her presence is a threat to someone; someone who doesn't hesitate to leave a trail of blood behind to keep their secrets safe. 

The events unfold a spiderweb of evil acts, lies, and a  truth that is far crueller than anyone can imagine, and soon Lola and Fergus find themselves at the centre of a killer hunt. What they cannot imagine is that the search for the truth will bring them back to Dublin. The vicious attack of their neighbour and friend, in fact, is some way connected to the savage murders in Ponte Alto, but how? 

 Inspector Furio Zamparelli and Detective Enda McCarthey will have to join forces and start a race against the clock to stop the killings. 

The deception of the powerful Kopfler family had started. There is no coming back: Will Lola be spared? “

Michael and Bernadette are living a perfect life in the dormant little Irish village of Seacross, but things are not always as they look. Husband and wife are actually living parallel lives. Michael had embarked on a dangerous affair and Bernadette had let the past back in her life. A past she cannot make amend with without endangering the present. Bernadette knows the path she had taken had no coming back and that it will change things forever, but it is her only chance to start a new chapter with Shane, her long-lost lover. But is Shane Flynn back for love or revenge? Soon they will be all trapped in a spiral of lies, secrets and lust, and when someone goes as far as murder the castle of lies built in the last twenty-four years is destined to collapse with devastating consequences.

The Last Witch, A Seacross Mystery

Back in 1974, the dormant Irish village of Seacross is shocked by the gruesome circumstances of young Margaret Morehouse’s death. Forty-five years later history seems to repeat itself and the quiet life of the coastal Irish village is suddenly shaken by a series of ritualistic murders.
Someone had broken the pact of secrecy to obtain justice, but if the truth comes out nobody will be spared, from the future Taoiseach to the local men of power. Inspector Billy McCabe is called to investigate but what hides behind those deaths is more obscure than he thinks.  Not only the inspector will have to face his demons and test his beliefs but will also have to watch over his shoulder because nobody can be trusted, not even the ones closest to him. In the end, McCabe will find his way out of the net of lies and old secrets, but at what price?

"Sabina Gabrielli Carrara does an excellent job of establishing tension and intrigue in her suspense books. The writer is so skilful in its plotting and characterization. Her writing is fluid, descriptive enough, focusing mostly on dialogues that connect you to the characters. When not writing she is a full-time mum of two girls and two dogs."
