Hello! I'm Paolo Ruggirello and I was born on October 31st, 1993 in Grosse Pointe, Michigan. My parents are Italian, my mom is from Calabria and my dad is from Sicily. I started writing at a very young age and have always been fascinated by the fantastical worlds present in books and video games. Though I loved these world's, I always felt like I needed a world of my own. I play pen-and-paper RPGs with my brother and friends, which proved to be the perfect space for me to create my own world. Five years later, I've finished the first story set in my world, called Pia, in which my brother and my good friend are the star characters. The first book chronicling these events is currently being edited by a freelance editor. Hopefully this will be done after February. While I was writing this book and this world, I rediscovered my love for poetry. However, I lacked the inspiration. Then I met my girlfriend, Minda, and became inspired to write more poems. I created and published a book of original poems in her honor, titled Lover. This collection of handcrafted poems is available on Amazon. I currently live in Minnesota with Minda and her cat, Lizzie. I am open-minded, spiritual, and enjoy questioning the magickal fabric of our world and other worlds. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07YLZY258/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_F179DbE0Y8V7R
