"To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield." ~Alfred Lord Tennyson

"Life. Always. Works. Out. Usually." ~Zahid

Hello, strange wanderer! My name's Nora. I'm just an American chick from an Italian family who has a mild obsession with Europe, especially Italy and Ireland. I love historical fiction, fantasy, and rainy days. My dream life is to have my own castle in Ireland, or villa in Tuscany, full to the brim with books and elaborate gowns.

I talk a lot (read: constantly), and interacting with fellow authors is always a bright spot to my day, so feel free to leave a message on my profile ;) If you're interested in read-for-reads, check out my Book Swap. For graphics commissions, email me at norapolitano@gmail.com

My books ⬎

❖The Charlemont❖

Historical fiction mystery centered on a theater and the shady goings-on of its cast. PHANTOM OF THE OPERA meets DOWNTON ABBEY

❖ STORMRISE ❖

Nordic fantasy about a dragon tamer who teams up with a ruthless princess to hunt down an assassin. SIX OF CROWS meets THE STAR-TOUCHED QUEEN

❖Goldsong❖

King Midas & The Golden Touch retelling with a girl whose voice turns men to gold. THE QUEEN'S THIEF meets POISON STUDY

❖Whatever Souls Are Made Of❖

Of soulmates, schemes, and inconvenient loves: a teen fiction romance with a dash of mental illness and a sprinkle of fantasy. My fantasy friends are still thoroughly appalled, though.


Thanks for stopping by!
