Hey! I know that a chick. You know her, too. It’s ME, the artist formerly known as Nancy Richy. Knew I couldn’t fool ya!

Well, it’s never too late to make some changes in life, teach an old dog new tricks, give the house a fresh coat of paint, etc etc.

So, may I introduce to you the scribe you’ve known for all these years – The Sicilian Storyteller! I’ll make you an offer you can’t refuse AND tell you a story at the same time! LOL!!

My website hasn’t changed; only my penname has been altered. It’s your same old friend with a new handle; don’t be afraid to turn that handle and come inside. I don’t bite – well, only those I like. πŸ’‹

Let’s get real: I’m proud of my heritage and the fact that I’m a writer; it’s who I am and what I do so why not go with it?!

Hello, all my friends! See you later! Ciau, tutti amichi! Ni sintemu doppo! πŸ™‹πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

  1. Loving reading the comments in Sicilian. Having first learnt my shaky Italian in Rome, then Florence, I can just about decipher them!
    What a fabulous name change. And if I’m not mistaken, it works better in English than in the Italian translation? xx

    1. Thanks for. your comments, Gwen! I thought about going with Lu Narratore Sicilianu … for about 5 seconds. It’s quite a mouthful!
      My parents spoke pure Italian as well as Sicilian and they would cross over very easily. I love the Italian language but Sicilian is intriguing – an interesting conglomeration of other languages which should come as no surprise considering Sicily was invaded by everyone at some point in time!
      If you listen to the two songs I posted previously, you’ll see that Lou Monte’s Calabrese dialect sounds a lot like Sicilian, which is the language spoken in southern Calabria. Ciau, u mo amicu australianu!
