Stefania Mattana writes crime novels and detective stories because she is a snooper. She always has been, ever since she was a kid.
Her stories and essays have appeared in numerous publications, websites and anthologies. Her British alter ego Chase Williams lives in her detective stories, from the Cutting Right to the Chase flash fiction collection to The Chase Williams Murder Mystery series.
When she’s not ending up people on fiction, Stefania works within the digital marketing industry in London. She likes reading on the Tube, going to the gym and stalking dogs. She dislikes not running.

Riccardo Pietrani non si smentisce mai, riuscendo a creare una trama intensa, ricca di colpi di scena e con personaggi delineati veramente in profondità. Il romanzo non è molto lungo ma il viaggio vale il prezzo. Consigliato.

"Way too short...these mini stories could be expanded into really full and enjoyable chapters."
Cutting Right to the Chase by Stefania Mattana
"I was surprised as to how engaging the stories were, for me. I'm normally a reader who likes more of a slow burn plot. This is perfect if you're on the go and need a quick read (kind of along the lines of Reader's Digest), or, if you feel burned out " Read more of this review »
