Hi, I'm Anna Silvia. For you, my friends, I'm Panna.
[For who doesn't know the Italian language, my nickname Panna means milk cream in English.]
Ever since I was seven years old, my dream is to become a writer of horror. Writing for me is a source of great happiness. A passion and a goal that always accompany me.
Obviously I'm an avid reader: from the Latin and Greek classics to the most diverse genres such as fantasy, the historical, the adventure and science fiction genre, but the kind that stole my heart is undoubtedly the horror (of course). I love the world of literature and its history. I like very much also learn about the lives of my favorite authors (whose idiosyncrasies and difficulties they have experienced are a source of example, encouragement and consolation for my goal and my fun).
I also like to read a lot of comics when I have a large collection. From the splatter to superheroes, from manga to comics fantasy, no one escapes me. My favorite superheroes are Batman, Nithcrawler, Wolverine, Silver Surfer and Thor, although they are actually an excuse to read the Joker and Loki.
My favorite horror comics are series Helraiser, necklace Splatter, Hellsing, Vampire Hunter D and Tales from the Crypt of the EC Comic.
Dylan Dog is my favorite comic above all.
To my stories and my books (and my personal interest) I always study the mythology, religions, folklore and fairy tales of many civilizations. I love the history and culture of the peoples of the past, of which I gather knowledge about their behaviors, customs and traditions.
I love ancient languages and learn them: I know the Latin language, the ancient Greek and Egyptian. Now, for my novel, I'm learning the Sumerian language (at least the words and grammar that historians have failed to send us).
I have a special passion for the serial killer modus operandi, biography and psychopathology that characterized them.
My biggest hobby is collecting horror movies. If writing is my calling and purpose in life, watching horror movies is certainly in second place in my heart. My collection currently includes 1576 film, I felt beautiful and worthy of being part of my little family. I was five years old when I saw my first horror movie, that was IT by Stephen King, because my brother wanted to scare me to death: the evil clown succeeded and it was love at first sight. When he discovered that most of the movies that I loved was taken from books and stories, I immediately knew what I had to do it big.
I really like to draw and paint. In fact, I've shown a lot of my stories, whose designs I would like one day to accompany their pages.
I listen to a lot of music, especially rock and metal (and all their various sub-genres), but I really like change. I can easily switch from Elvis to Beethoven. I have always regretted, however, that he had never learned to play an instrument.
I have traveled a lot: I have been to Vienna, Budapest, Strasbourg, Brussels, the Black Forest in Germany and location of my Italy, such as Rome, Florence, Venice, Island of Elba, Montebello, Ravenna, etc ... Surely, though, my favorite destinations were Greece, of which I had the good fortune to visit Athens, Mycenae, Corinth and Metaurus, and Transylvania, which I have visited all the places of worship and secret Vlad Tepesh, known as Dracula.
Finally, I really like playing cosplay to comic conventions. For this passion I found out I have a secret talent for sewing. I realize now, my own clothes and little friends to accompany me as maschotte, in the form of plush.
I attended the Classical Lyceum high school, and now I am a student at a university psychology. I live in a small town on the Adriatic Sea, in the region of Emilia Romagna. I live in a house in the country, shared with my family and many animals, including 14 cats.
Well I would say that I have dwelt enough.
