Lia Mara Dospetti holding the Italian copy of Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo


Note: Lia chose anonymity, so Lia Dospetti isn’t her real name and she will not show herself online unless it’s a drawing or a photo that has been censored and edited. Lia’s personal contents are also heavily edited for privacy without loss of meaning for the overall message. Think Elena Ferrante. Thanks for respecting her choice! Here are some of Lia’s reasons for it.

The Author

Lia Dospetti was born somewhere in Europe, sometime in September 1985. As a child, she could be found scribbling down short stories and novels on paper notebooks during school breaks. As an adult, she defines herself an eternal daydreamer and insatiable bookworm, and is actively working on her novels and short stories for publication (indie and self publishing, mostly, but she won’t disdain an interesting publisher).

Some Life Tidbits

Lia is demigirl and she uses she/her pronouns. However, gender-neutral pronouns make her smile, so feel free to use them. (Feel free to also use he/his if you feel more comfortable with that.)

Lia is currently in a happy relationship.
