fiorella this excellent profile of novelist Fiorella De Maria at the Catholic World Report website:

During Lent 1998, a teenage girl, having just left an English convent school, knelt at the grotto of St. Jerome in the Holy Land. She prayed fervently, asking that through his intercession she would one day become a writer. More two decades later I traveled from London to Surrey to meet that girl—now a grown woman and with five published novels to her name. It is apparent that the prayers of her younger self had indeed been answered.

It is now 10 years since Fiorella de Maria published her first novel, The Cassandra Curse
