The Adulterous Bride



Many noble daughters of Venice are consigned to abbeys for want of a dowry.  In 1426, Filipa Barbagio is sent to San Nicolai di Torcello, where she enjoys the hedonistic lifestyle available to her: dressed in the latest fashions, wearing expensive jewellery, attending masquerade balls, entertaining her family and taking men to be her companions.  And then she falls in love.

Dardi Zorzi loves Clario Duodo, but society expects an arranged marriage with sweet Caterina.  Their marriage is difficult at first but gets better over time, especially after the birth of their daughter Lucia.  Tragically Caterina is murdered and Dardi is the prime suspect.  Filipa comforts and helps her oldest and dearest friend, but then Dardi is accused of the most heinous crime of all.  In the aftermath of this terrible denunciation, Filipa risks losing her newly-found love while Dardi risks losing all.

What an amazing story!  Renaissance Venice told from three different points of view: bright, extroverted Filipa Barbarigo who steals every scene she's in, honest and decent Marin Curri, happily married to the wonderful Blanca, and Dardi Zorzi who has to make the best of an almost untenable situation.  Amazing backdrop, amazing story, amazing characters, and the most masterful ending that I have ever come across.  Congratulations.

The Last Great Race Published





Achille Varzi: the most successful of his time; hero to his followers; worshiped by the women in his life; driven to succeed.  Told partly through the eyes of Varzi and partly by fictional Italian-Australian journalist Paul Bassi, we follow the many triumphs and tragedies of Varzi's life: his passionate love affairs, his tragic addictions, his recovery, his marriage and his re-signing to race once more.

This is a fictionalised account of a real-life story that seems to incredible to be true, only it is.

And win they did; they won the Great War. Please go to my books page to order or download your copy.  View the film clip on YouTube
