My name is Audacity.
I am a professional novelist, analytical psychologist and adventurer.
As a novelist, my main themes are erotic philosophy, sensuosity, the psychology of Carl Jung and the philosophy of the early Athenian hedonists.
I use this property, which I have affectionately named 'Villa Krater', as an atelier for my writing and illustrative work and as an entertainment space for various writer, artist and other friends and acquaintances.
I have listed the property as an opportunity to make new encounters with some of the many hundreds of fascinating travellers who pass through Taormina each day and who may share similar interests to my own.
