Italophile Short Stories
Candida’s short stories, in the tradition of Daphne du Maurier, touch on crime, murder, mystery and the unpredictable relations between men and woman.
The stories are collected together in Bocconcini – Tasty Morsels, which is available as a Kindle e-book and a Paperback edition via Amazon.com.
