Wakan Kola

Wakan Kola is a fanzine, a crossover with the book The Code of Eagles that tells the meeting of a musk ox with an old Indian.

Wakan Kola is a spin-off of The Code of the Eagles from the Tales of the Earth series. In The Code of the Eagles, during the depths of a harsh winter, a musk ox meets an elderly ‘smooth skin’ (this is how the animals refer to humans). This life-changing encounter occurs when they both need each other more than ever and an important exchange takes place.

I believe that in the most difficult moments in life, fate can be more than mere coincidence.

The story unfolds about 16,000 years ago. Since we know very little about the language used by humans at that time, I have drawn on my creative license and chosen the dialect of the Native American Dakota tribe to express the smooth skin’s feelings towards the awe-inspiring musk ox.

Post Mortem

The supernatural has always been present in many moments of my life and it was what led me to formulate stories and write about it. Terror can be present every day and it just depends on the way we look at a shadow, a stain on the wall. Writing Post Mortem was an opportunity to explore these sensations. Each story was inspired by a supernatural event that I went through, from strange messages received on cell phones, figures that chase, voices that come from the drain, nightmares with night terror, breathing the ashes of the dead … Events like this could not be just in my drawer and, with a touch of fiction and spices, I decided to bring Post Mortem: a collection of horror stories to not sleep, for horror lovers to enjoy.
