Angela Camilla Pontone lives in Italy, in a town between Rome and Naples. She's been an avid reader since childhood. She prefers romance, but will gobble up pretty much anything that's available. She's always loved history and literature, so she obtained a Master's Degree in the fields of Italian and Romance Languages, Literatures and Philology, Historical and Musicological Studies, Latin Languages and Literatures, Ancient History, and Archaeology.
Camilla's secret desire was always to be a writer, but she never had the courage to pursue her dream until her life experiences led her to seek a way out of reality. The publication of her first novel, Flames of Truth, was met with international acclaim on Amazon. Her dream is to continue to creat

Hello my lovelies!

Thanks to your constructive criticism and advice, I've realized the present translation of FLAMES OF TRUTH doesn't do justice to my book, and YOU, my wonderful readers, deserve something much better! I’ve thought about it long and hard, and I've decided to have it retranslated and reedited. I know this means you’ll have to wait a while longer for Book Two, and I sincerely regr...

“She was beautiful.
Her sinuous and light movements hypnotized and took away the breath of every person in the audience. Including mine.
I could almost see her soul as she moved to the rhythm of music. It was brilliant and wonderful, but sad. Of a sadness that smelled of despair.
She was the rain that fell slowly. Free. Wild. Unhappy. A tear that came unexpectedly from the sky.
Pain in its true form.
“Emma,” I whispered.”
A.C. Pontone, Flames of Truth

“Plato in the Symposium used to say that, at the beginning of time, human beings had four arms, four legs, and two heads. In time, they began to be insolent toward the gods, who, as punishment, separated them into two parts with a thunderbolt, creating from each primordial human being two new divided beings. As a consequence, every man tries to find his initial wholeness looking for his lost half.
He was right, more or less. I believed that even my soul was born differently. With ten arms, ten legs, and five heads. Creepy if I imagined it, but I thought it would make the idea better.”
A.C. Pontone, Flames of Truth

“I thought a lot about death. My death.
I got used to the idea of dying.
I always imagined it’d be peaceful, with slow-motion scenes and a nice background melody… like in a movie. But I was wrong.
I was lost in the eerie quiet. It was cold and dark.
My hair floated lightly in the air. No, not in the air, but in the water.
Water surrounded me from every side. Frozen water that seemed to burn in my lungs. I was drowning and couldn’t breathe.
I tried to swim.
Desperately, I kicked my legs and waved my hands, but I wasn’t able to reach the surface.
I felt all my energies slowly leave me. It was too dark, and I was tired, but I didn’t want to give up.
I didn’t want to die.
I tried to push harder with my feet, hoping to feel something solid underneath me, but there was nothing but the fluctuating light and darkness. It swallowed me and I didn’t know what to do.
I had always been afraid of two things in my life, water and darkness, so I wondered how the hell I had ended up here.
My head was spinning due to the lack of oxygen. I kept fighting, but every cell in my body screamed to let it go. I had to breathe, so I opened my mouth and inhaled strongly. Water came into my lungs, but it had stopped hurting. I no longer felt anything when my body became numb and the darkness devoured me.”
