Annalisa Conti lives and writes in New York City, where she has been spending the last few years of her life. She is a woman who writes about women, real human beings facing drama and challenges, finding happiness and rewards, succeeding and failing. Normal people.If you like Jane Austen for her honest humor, Gillian Flynn for her descent into human darkness, and Elena Ferrante for her focus on storytelling, you will find Annalisa’s tales wildly entertaining.
She recently published her third novel, NINE. It is a modern tale on motherhood, a unique story about pregnancy, its hidden fears, and its untold truths.
Her second novel, AFRICA, was an Amazon Kindle #1 in its category. Reviewers say it is a “fascinating” “astonishing” story of a life-changing journey to the end of the world, “powerful and dramatic, and well integrated into this incredible “decorum””.
Annalisa is also the author of ALL THE PEOPLE, a novel built around a woman’s secrets. Reviewers say “you cannot put it down”, it is “capturing reader’s attention since the very first lines”, and it has a “very deep and accurate psychological perspective”.
She publishes quarterly episodes in the collection of short stories THE W SERIES, which describe the world of W, a superhero like no other. Reviewers say it is "a classic action story but somehow very different from anything else", with a "writing style packed of action and visual clues as if it was taken right out of a Marvel comic strip".
The first ten episodes of THE W SERIES have been collected in W IS FOR WONDER.
In the middle of the night, a shadow is running in the darkness of lonely New York City corners, chasing criminals, helping lost souls.
Wrong Day For a Kill is the first short story in the science-fiction series Superhero Stories: The W Series. W is a superhero like no other, who struggles between the hunger for Justice and the need to use violence to achieve that very ideal of justice.
Where is W running to tonight? Who is being chased?
Meet W in the first of a long series of adventures.
In the second entry of THE W SERIES, we remove the mask and meet Guinn McGovern, the person in the black suit, the soul of the superhero who aims at bringing New York City back to justice.
Having super powers doesn’t really help Guinn in the everyday life: struggling at work, while trying to balance crime-fighting activities with a normal social life.
What can go wrong on a date night?
Some nights are memorable for W and they are filled with successes in fighting crime; during some nights W holds on to the daytime identity of Guinn McGovern, trying to deal with a normal social existence and the struggles of modern dating. This night W has to wear both hats: the job as a superhero doesn’t allow any day off, even when some truths about Guinn, and about how some of the main characters of the series became who they are, could be waiting around a corner.
Follow Guinn in a new adventure in the East Harlem neighborhood W so constantly strives towards protecting.
What will happen next?
Questions keep ravaging W’s mind today: what’s hiding behind a research center and its chief, a Professor well-known and respected in the scientific community?
W will have to fight against time to look for the answers, in a long run through febrile hours. Until something catches W’s eyes and makes everything shake.
Embark in a new adventure with W, and find out where will we go next.

Magic is real and the Guardian is powerless to stop it.
Everything is perfectly organized in Amber’s life: her days at work, in the offices of a prestigious magazine in New York; her time with her beloved husband Mike, and their adventurous vacations around the world.
When Amber finds out she is pregnant, her immediate reaction is sheer denial: this can’t be true. She always knew she would want children one day, but now it feels so sudden, so unexpected. She tries to play for time, but Mike’s reaction to the news, with pure delight and anticipation, is the exact opposite. Wasn’t he happy before? Was it all a lie?
The news of the pregnancy propagates like circular water waves, from close family to friends, to colleagues, to acquaintances. At each circle, Amber further detaches from the new role society is imposing on her, and she refuses to comply with the expectation of full submission to the child. At each circle, new voices join the choir of enthusiast celebrations, obstructing Amber’s restless attempts to keep control on her life, to remain who she is without losing herself, her husband, or her job.
NINE explores the role of women in today’s society, the meaning of modern motherhood and how it impacts the relationship between a woman and her companion, her workplace, her friends, her family.
Reviewers of NINE say it is a “remarkably candid” and “eye-opening take on the demons and fears of pregnancy”, a powerful answer to “what we think it means to be a woman today”.

All patients have problems, and Doctor Alexander Williams knows it: that’s why they come back every week, they sit on a sofa in his psychoanalysis practice and they tell him their stories. But what is it about Sylvia Fischer that he has never been able to quite grasp? Maybe the way she never mentions her life before deciding to marry her husband: a boring, cheating, rich New York boy. Or the way she talks, with a deep voice and a British accent, even if she was born in Texas. Or maybe Dr. Williams can feel the pale halo of depression that surrounds her.
One day, Sylvia Fischer tells Dr. Williams a new story: there’s a man she’s been in love with for many years, who now wants her to run away with him. And away she goes.
Sylvia Fischer doesn’t simply leave, though, she disappears: no words are left for her husband, her two-year-old daughter, her parents. No one knows anything about that man from Sylvia’s past, but Alexander Williams wants to believe that she has found her happiness.
Until everything collapses.

An all-seeing social network that tracks your every move.
Mysterious, smooth-talking power players who lurk behind the scenes.
A young woman from the trailer park.
And her very smelly cat.
Together, they will decide the future of mankind.
Get ready for a world in which anyone can have the powers of a god or the fame of a pop star, in which human achievement soars to new heights while its depravity plunges to the blackest depths. A world in which at least one cat smells like a seafood shop's dumpster on a hot summer day.
This is the world in which Zoey Ashe finds herself, navigating a futuristic city in which one can find elements of the fantastic, nightmarish and ridiculous on any street corner. Her only trusted advisor is the aforementioned cat, but even in the future, cats cannot give advice. At least not any that you'd want to follow.
Will Zoey figure it all out in time? Or maybe the better question is, will you? After all, the future is coming sooner than you think.
