About the Author

Once upon a time. . . isn’t that how every fairytale begins?

For author Lisa Fantino her story began as a child full of tales with a wild imagination.  Her parents bought her a typewriter and tape-recorder for Christmas and so it began…a journey toward embracing her writer’s passion.

Lisa Fantino is the bestselling author of Amalfi Blue, her travel memoir, which has has been in the Top 10 books on Italy on three continents, hitting #1 in Australia.

With “Shrouded in Pompei” she introduces the Mickey Malone Mystery series, a new view on crime with legs to die for.

During more than 20 years at New York City’s top radio news stations, WCBS-AM and WINS-AM, and as an anchor at the NBC Radio Networks, Lisa interviewed everyone from Mick Jagger and Jon Bon Jovi to Walter Cronkite and Yogi Berra. While she has traveled the world, both for work and play, as an attorney and a journalist, Lisa’s soul is always happiest in Italy. When she’s not flying here, there and everywhere, her homebase is New York, where she lives on a diet of Salsa On2 and dark chocolate.
