Igor and Paola are a couple in life and in writing. He is a Police Officer who reads and writes only detectives’ and mystery stories. She teaches in primary schools, reading and writing only children’s books. They decided to meet halfway. In their view, there is no real difference between children’s and adult fiction. A good story is good enough for everyone.
