It was a slow living decade... Or was it?


•°•

From a nascent Book Talk in the historic Malaga Cove Library in Palos Verdes CA, to living, writing and publishing THE GHOSTS OF ITALY to the upcoming 2020 release of STILL LIFE WITH SAINTS, and everything and everyone on via Fontana and in between, 2009 - 2019 has been the decade adventure of a lifetime. I have lived loved and learned as L'Americana and become a thriving Italiana.
•°•
Gratitude for all the saints and sisters, writers and readers who have traveled with me along the way. Even got to be a Goddess for a day! Through it all the original motto still stands ~ 
•°•
Come. Visit. Vi aspettiamo!
 •°•
AUGURI DI BUON ANNO 2020
from via Fontana with love, Angela

Literary Goddess PODCAST


Recently did an author interview / chat with The Literary Goddess for THE GHOSTS OF ITALY and STILL LIFE WITH SAINTS (2020) ~ A fledgling podcast by two ambitious women who write/self publish books & poetry. Their slant is a bit woowoo paranormal romance with a dash of girlpower radical!

GHOSTS eBOOK @ QUEENS PUBLIC LIBRARY



* * *
But I saw a street called Myrtle Avenue, from Borough Hall to Fresh Pond Road, and down this street no saint ever walked (else it would have crumbled), down this street no miracle ever passed, nor any poet.’ Henry Miller, Tropic of Capricorn 
#StillLifeWithSaints
Myrtle Avenue from Glendale to the Brooklyn Navy Yard, with its plentiful beer gardens and parks to the Ridgewood movie theater was the young, emigrated Nicola Paolantonio’s new New York neighborhood. Myrtle at Wyckoff Avenues in Richmond Hill, Kew Gardens, Queens played heavily in the daily rounds of my young father’s perambulations. My parents married in the crypt of the local parish of Saint Rita on Shepherd Avenue. #StillLifeWithSaints
