This work includes three stories. Mirage tells a love story in a violent environment. A French officer who obeys an uncertain chain of command in North Africa is ordered to report on the fate of a group of refugees fleeing ethnic cleansing carried out by the Tuaregs in Mali. The expected relief from world powers gets diluted in a web of strategic interests, leaving the refugees homeless. In this environment love, disappointment and rebellion are born. The Girl and the Knight takes place in 1242 in the steppes of Russia. A Teutonic Knight flees from his Slavs pursuers and finds shelter in a Mongolian nomad camp. There he joins a Tartar girl, but the Russians determined to expel all invaders from their land will not give them respite. Oasis of Light tells the story of a young man sent to a Nazi expedition to Tibet in search of the origin of the Aryan race under the sands of the Gobi desert and what he actually finds in these remote places.

I appreciate your interest in reading these few words in which I talk about mywork. It is a good habit to try to understand what led an author to write aparticular book, because the motivations vary from author to author and frombook to book.
As a sign of respect for the reader, in all my books I make a thorough previousinvestigation of the facts the work refers to, particularly considering thatmany of them take place in places sometimes very far apart from each other andalso in various historical periods; my books often travel indeed throughdilated stretches in time and space.
These searches are based on my memory, in the large family library and the hugequarry of facts and data existing in the Internet. In the global networkeveryone can search but not all find the same ... fortunately, since thisresults in a huge variability and diversity.
The plot of course comes from the imagination and fantasy. This is critical forme and I confess that I would never write a book that I wouldn´t like to read;my interests as a writer and as a reader coincide to a large degree.
My works often take place in exotic locations and refer sometimes to surprisingand even paradoxical facts, but never enter the realm of the fantastic andincredible. Moreover, the most bizarre events are often true.
