A Bit About Me
Author of murder mysteries with a psychological twist, I've always loved giving life in ink to the colourful characters playing in my mind.
After a degree in History and Philosophy and some experience in Human resources, I moved to Ireland in 2003 and worked a few years in financial services before I decided to go back to my old passion: writing.
Published author in Denmark and Italy, I currently live in the little village of Balrothery in North Co. Dublin with my husband, two daughters and three dogs.

“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? “

AllAuthor interview with Sabina Gabrielli Carrara
"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."

Crime and Traveling. Interview with travel blogger Pedrol
First things first: what would you say about yourself that can be surprising?
That I love bats🦇 and that despite my bubbly approach to lifeI love to be alone, no actually I love to be in my own company.
Where do you live and what are your 3 favorite things about this place?
I live in Ireland, in a rural area I love the that I'm in the countryside and I can walk in the fields but I also have the sea just 3 km away and I can go swimming all year around. I love to have Dublin half an hour driving away also for every time I fancy a bit of city life. I love the way this country is still naive in so many ways but so advanced in others, and I love Irish weather. Yes, you heard me, I like Irish weather and in particular irsh summers, warm enough to undress but not too hot like in italy.
If it wasn´t the pandemic and you could be abroad, where would you be at this moment and why?
I would certainly be in Iceland because that's where we were set to go last year but then the pandemic came.
why Iceland? because I love Scandinavian culture and Finland and Iceland are the only two countries I have not been yet, plus im dying to sleep in a ice hotel and see the northern lights.
Either on blogging or arts or maths, what are your biggest inspirations and how do they inspire you?
I'm definitely not a number person and it's a matter of fact that I still count with my fingers; I'm not much artistic either but I write. That's what I do and as I like murdering people in my books there is one and only person who inspired me: Agatha Christie.
Morticia Adams and Jessica Fletcher too.... what? They are not real? Ok then, Camilla Lackberg and Peter Hoeg.
What are your tips to have a successful blog?
I'm not sure I'm the right person to answer this question but if I have to , I would say write from the heart about what you are passionate about and try to put a smile on your readers face.
What are you goals for this year and how do you imagine yourself in a decade?
Publish my forth novel in english and danish and the first two in italian.
How do I see myself in a decade? Not much different from today but hopefully with more time to write and myself.
I'm not bother at all by wrinkles or grey hair, aging doesnt scare me as soon as it doesn't affect my energy and my mood.
