My name is Gianfranco Menghini. I left school early to follow the advice of a close relative of mine who helped me by embarking on American oil tankers. I accepted with enthusiasm and, at the age of eighteen. I was sent by plane to Los Angeles, in whose oil port (Wilmington) I had to wait 15 days for the ship which had suffered serious damage to the turbine.

From the memories of that fascinating world, I drew a writing of my memories (CALIFORNIA, NO MORE). I was a beardless boy and showed that I was still a child. I attracted the sympathies of certain ladies who wanted to adopt me, advising me against making the sailor’s life.

Passionate about the Napoleonic epic, I made use of my knowledge of this period, for that I wrote one after the other, a historical book trilogy, scrupulously following the events which had taken place, but inventing a pronounced love story between adventures, coups, naval clashes, enriching the protagonist of immense fortune’s thanks to the spoils of war intercepted during the campaigns of Italy. The titles of the three volumes are THE DAYS OF PREY, 1800. THE GREAT CENTURY and THE LAST CROSSING.

I married in Rabat (Morocco) with a beautiful woman, daughter of Italians, but of French culture. So, I became a friend to her friends, who were forced to return to France where they chose to reside in the countryside behind the city of Cannes. Inevitably, we frequented each other’s residences. Over the years, I had the opportunity to study that environment, so much so that I wrote a book (CHRISTINE DANJOU). Fairly irreverent, humorous and slightly erotic. I opened a travel agency on Elba, as well as offering holidays on the beautiful island, then I ventured to Corsica, where I met many friends with many types, who induced me to put their island in my holiday plans. After a few years, I wrote a narration volume (ENCHANTMENT IN A SUMMER EARLY MORNING…).

My travel agency had a great success, on the wave of which I turned it into a Tour Operator, planning holidays in South America. The result was a first volume (ONE MARLIN FOR TWO) and then another book (THE GOLDEN DESERT).

  

Urged by my literary agent, I wrote two more books (OVER THE BORDERS) and the narration volume (MIRROR OF WOMAN). The first set in Spain during the civil war and the other in Rome, during the early fascist period.

Passionate reader of Maigret, I tried to follow the teachings of Simenon, and I wrote two detective novels, inventing a character of an unusual commissioner, set in an atypical country like him (TEXEL and TEXEL AND THE SCOTTISH COP).

Withdrawing to private life (retirement) I became a writer. With great verve, but without notoriety. So, I told the story of two writers, the first almost colluded with the politicians of Rome a fanciful book (IT HOLDS OUT, MY FRIEND) and the other novel, the protagonist of an unfinished love at a mature age (THE INCOMPLETE LIFE).

  

Given my attendance at the palaces of political power in Rome, I wrote two other novels, quite irreverent for certain politicians (MAX, THE SCOT FREE), the story of a poor young man who becomes Prime Minister and THE POLITICIANS for my very imaginative idea of ​​the political class current. Of course, without referring to real people and things. All pure inferences.

Later, sensitive to the state of degradation of the consumer world of mineral fuels, I wrote a fantasy novel to sensitize my readers (KALLITALA – THE UNKNOWN PARADISE).

  

Later, summing up my literary memories, I wrote another one literature novel (FROM MY GAZEBO) a set of poems, short stories and selected passages from my books.
