Author Biography

I was born and brought in Sardinia (Italy). After studying languages, I moved to the UK and worked as a secretary for the University of London.
Later, I was offered a similar job in Sardinia, so I moved back there for a few years.

At the age of 28, I decided to come back to the UK, in Cambridge, and carried on working as a PA at Director level for another ten years.

In 2007, I founded my own Company, I now offer freelance secretarial services.

I am married to Philip. As well as being a wife, I’m also a mother to a four year old daughter who keeps me busy, sometimes more than work itself. As I pick up potentially lethal objects scattered on the floor, or discover new stains on the sofas or walls, I try to get my little girl to speak Italian, preferably without an English accent.

Like any other woman, I’m good at multi-tasking, so while I’m doing all the above, I also dream about those lovely characters who cannot wait to make their appearance in my future books.

Identical twins Lucy and Poppy may look like carbon copies on the outside, but Martina Munzittu makes sure we all know that is where the similarities end. While it isn’t a new idea that twins go to great lengths to define themselves as individuals rather than a single entity, Incompatible Twins gives us this story with a unique and updated twist. Lucy has chosen to be the ‘normal’ twin, staying in London to get a steady job and buying a smart flat. Unfortunately, Lucy is also painfully single so Poppy, the ‘wild’ one who has traveled the world and adopted customs from different cultures, takes it upon herself to use her worldly experience to get her twin coupled up.

Of course, any story to do with twins inherently has a bit of comedic relief and Incompatible Twins delivers hilarity in spades. The biggest difference between Lucy and Poppy is everything. One is an environmentalist while the other indulges in long baths; Lucy saves money while Poppy spends it without regard for where the next batch of cash will come from. Although Lucy and Poppy obviously love one another, the differences between them make it difficult for any extended periods of tranquility and Martina Munzittu does a fantastic job of highlighting this without making either twin unlikable. The twins are not incompatible, per se, but their chosen lifestyles mean that living together is quite impossible. This was a fast and fun story with lots of quick and witty dialogue. I would love to see Incompatible Twins expanded to find out what happens to Poppy and Lucy.
