Who’s Franny

Hi there!

I’m Francesca but everybody call me Franny! I’m Italian and I live in Dublin with my partner! I work part-time in a museum/visitor experience or however they want to call that place and I found out that customer service job isn’t the priority in my life but in order to reach the end of the month I have to do that! Ah ah!

I’m a writer, and that is my real dream and priority! I write every time I have a minute free, it doesn’t matter what! My only problem is that I was taking too seriously the matter forgetting the nice and funny side of it, and this is “inconceivable”, if you let me quote! This is why I opened this blog. You’ll find here the funniest (I hope), the most lunatic and the most human part of me!

And now I become a mum and my spare time reduced dramatically so here I am again! 

As recently I received some awards requesting to tell some random facts about me I’m going to list them here too, because I believe you should know who you’re facing entering the blog!!!!!


 I love my child more than my life. However, although at the very beginning I stated that I wanted 3, after having her I say that I’ll think twice about the second!


Whenever I go to Italy I try to eat the things I love most like, pizza, sgabei and farinata, until I feel sick! People around look at me all the time like I had a severe eating disorder, but who cares!

I love foreign languages, I speak Italian, English, a bit of Spanish and I remember less that I’d love to of Japanese!

I created a very personal family for myself and I can say that beside my brother I have another brother and two sisters and I love them very much.

I’m an open book and unfortunately you can understand what I think as soon as you study my face…or even if you just look at it. Actually if I can’t stand you, you’ll get it before I open my mouth!
 I love martial arts, I did karate for 3 years till the brown belt when I was teen ager and it was the best period of my life.


 I love writing and creating things. It’s a real addiction I have to admit. Thanks goodness is legal!


I love pirates, yarrrrr. I’m collecting books about them! And Vampires, trying to collect books about them as well. And just if you were wondering, I started loving Pirates when I was 8 thanks to Sandokan adventures, Pirates of Caribbean came later! And most important I love the classic kind of vampire, the one that explodes or burns to death if under the sun! I felt insulted by the sparkling thing!


If I could choose to come back and meet someone from past time it would be Robert Louis Stevenson. He’s my hero and I’d love to talk to him.

I love men in kilt. Love them! When Ireland plays against Scotland and my workplace fills with Scots in kilt I’m the happiest staff member.


I collect weird earrings. I have a kind of zoo and a necked leprechaun. I think I wouldn’t like to wear earring too normal, I’d feel weird.


I live in Ireland which is one of the countries I’ve always wanted to visit since my childhood. The others are Scotland and Japan. I’ve spent one weekend in Edinburgh but I’m thinking to go back and visit more. And I hope against hope to be able to visit Japan one day.

I suck in planning (I think I’ll do a post about that) and every time I jot down a list or something alike I get nervous because I cannot check anything at all.

I’m a big time waster, as I realize little by little every day. I always tell myself that tomorrow I’ll be better but it’s just a sailor’s promise.


I believe in ghosts and something supernatural exists but I don’t believe in gods…any of them. It might be a reaction to the bigotry I had at home. But mostly the majority of the things they say don’t make any sense to me. I respect Shinto because it worships the nature and the elements mainly and it’s more on my same wave.


I love pistachio and hazelnut combo when I have an ice-cream.


I created a fantasy world called Sonrisa and I’ve been working on it for 6 years now, but I cannot see the end. There is so much to do!


I lost my self-confidence when I was 13. If someone sees her can send her home, please, we miss her a lot.


I never have the right answer at the right time! This is something that infuriates me.


While I’m having a walk around, I love twisting people and situation I encounter into some fictional character.
I usually sign on my notebook the names I like most among the thousands of customers I see every year. Some of them are perfect for fantasy novels! And I’m convinced now that Dutch and German surnames in particular are perfect for the villains.
I love dogs and when I was young I wanted to grow up fast and be rich in order to have a huge house to fill with abandoned dogs.
First time I wrote something I was 8 and it was the beginning of a book about an archaeologist. Then my hopes were destroyed and I stopped for a too long period of time.
The instrument I love most is the drum. Maybe is not something I do on purpose but I end up in being friend with drummers, even if I don’t know they play drums in the beginning.
I love this man, he’s a real artist and I would like you can appreciate his work. Give it a go!
