Welcome

I’m Daniela Pesconi-Arthur, author, writing, poet, coach, teacher, friend, beach lover, and world traveler. I would like to personally invite you here into my little world. You can find the different novels I’ve written, coaching programs, and programs for aspiring authors. I believe writing is more than just putting words on a piece of paper. Writing for me is a way to see into a person’s soul. To understand more than just a feeling or a moment. Writing is a way to heal, to understand, and to grow.

My Story
Panel 1

Love and Pizza

Are you ready to be transported to the sweet and delicious world of Love and Pizza? I now officially invite you to dive in to the world of Carolina and her adventures in Napoli. The Kindle ebook has been out since Feb/16, and now we also have it in paperback!!! How exciting is it? You can get yours on any Amazon.

“Loveandpizza.it” is a romantic comedy, perfect for the chick lit aficionados. If you are a fan of Marian Keyes, Katie Fforde, Jill Mansell, Sophie Kinsella (the “Shopaholic” series), Jojo Moyes (“Me Before You”, which was made into a film), Jane Green, Maeve Binchy, – then this book is for you!

Are you passionate about all things Italian (Italian food, Italian language, Italian culture), or perhaps you are going to spend holidays (or even a quick visit) in Naples? If you are, this book is also for you, and you can find Naples sightseeing tips (yes, a different Naples travel guide), including Capri, Pompeii, Ercolano and the great Vesuvius. There are also some insights on the Neapolitan mafia, the Camorra.

You had me at love and pizza!!!

The Writing Shed

The writing shed is an actual shed where I do my writing! It is right in the corner of our back garden! The Writing Shed is a dream; a dream that was nurtured in my heart… for you! Why not join other women looking for the same thing as you: to be the best version of themselves that they can be?

This Chic Writes

I’m inviting you to the wonderful world of chick lit! Chick lit is one of my favourite genres to read and my genre of choice to write in. What I expect to do with this project/research and creative writing is to achieve a new level in creating a chick lit novel, and to help you to do the same. Can chick lit be used as a tool for women empowerment and self-discovery? What do you think?

Em Portugues

 

Blogando em brasileiro. Um tanto de mineirês (sou mineira, uai!) misturado com português e regado a muita saudade e humor – ou mau humor, dependendo do “dia do mês”. Ha. Já vou logo avisando, não sou de falar ou escrever português culto ou formal, daqueles que a gente ouve advogado falar (nada contra… no tribunal, né, faça-me o favor…). ADORO inventar palavras e, dependendo do meu nível de empolgação… vírgula pra quê, me diz! AMO escrever. Descobri esse amor quando vim pro Reino Unido. Fiz mestrado em Inglês e Escrita Criativa, mas é a primeira vez que escrevo “publicamente” na minha língua materna. E já tem tanta idéia passeando pela minha cabeça…. Seus sortudos! Ah, também estou suuuper por fora das novas regras do português, então já peço mil desculpas se eu acentuar alguma coisa que não deve ser acentuada (ou “hifenada”) e se eu não acentuar o que deve ser acentuado. Pra ser bem honesta, estou passando o maior aperto com meu teclado… (ainda não descobri onde fica o ponto de interrogação, acreditam! (eu disse… Afff…) (UPDATE: eu já descobri!!!)

 

Vamos devanear?
Panel 5

Words Of Wisdom

The pieces of me

For quite some time I’ve been juggling a few “roles” alongside my full time job… I must confess I wasn’t being very effective, and even though I was doing things I really love to do, due to the amount of things I was trying to juggle, overwhelm and frustration were a constant in my life. […]

#MemoriesSunday ~ The Writing She

Neighbours ~ #MemoriesSunday

This week’s #MemoriesSunday is a “recycled” post from The Writing Shed. I spent the whole week searching the memories cupboard in my brain, and sometimes even got down the stairs to the one in my heart, but the memories stored in this one are still a bit raw, so I decided to leave them alone […]
