Trinidad Giachino is an Argentinian indie writer and actor, currently residing in Buenos Aires, Argentina. She studied literature at Buenos Aires University (dropping out before completing her degree). Her stage training began when she was 11 years old, with Juan Carlos Thorry and Alma Velez.
Raised in a family where reading is as necessary as brushing your teeth, writing and creating stories were an important part of Trinidad’s life from an early stage. And her tendency towards darker genres was evident from the start: from a failed attempt to read Dracula at age 12 (it was a terrifying illustrated edition), up to the love at first sight she experienced when she immersed herself in Henry James' The turn of the screw. Since then, Trinidad hasn´t looked back...mostly out of fear of finding a horrifying fictional beast tracing her every step. O perhaps, in Julio Cortazar's style, her paredro lurking around, ready to murder her and take her place.
After writing short stories for ten years, Trinidad stopped sprinting and decided to go for the full marathon: writing novels. This way, she managed to join together the two sides of her life into one happy marriage: Mr. Stage Training and Miss Education in Literature (they already have two bilingual offspring, and they all expect this union to be even more fertile. Basically, Trinidad is hoping they reproduce like rabbits. Fingers crossed).
Jokes aside, this combination has allowed her to create tridimensional characters that live thrilling adventures with a supernatural touch.
Even though she comes from an Italian family, Trinidad is bilingual (Spanish/English). She began studying the language when she was eight years old and only stopped thirteen years later. Knowing she will never master it completely, she feels a great love and a deep respect for the language that allowed her to become a published author. In the same form, her activity as a screenwriter has happened (up to his moment) only in the English market.
In 2014, Trinidad took yet another leap of faith by directing her first play: a small comedy of two male characters that not only gave her the opportunity to create a tridimensional world, but also to work on a new genre. This way, she was able to appreciate the undeniable effect of a full room laughing and enjoying themselves with something she had helped to create.
The mystery and suspense book series Detective Saussure Mysteries is the result of the union of three unlikely interests: Agatha Christie body of work, film noir and the world of supernatural phenomena.
As yoga enthusiast and a cat lover, Trinidad Giachino shares her days with felines, canines and the occasional human, while creating (or embodying) stories. She is also constantly trying to trick her palate by exchanging high coffee dosages for the always less amicable cup of tea.
Her goal as a writer, and as a performer, is to breathe life into stories that are equally appealing to any reader/viewer on the planet, regardless of the color of their passport.
