My name is Alyssa Palombo, and I am a writer living and working in Buffalo, NY. I attended Canisius College in Buffalo, where I majored in English and creative writing with a minor in music. I’m a classically trained mezzo-soprano who also dabbles in playing piano. When not writing, I can usually be found reading, hanging out and laughing way too hard at nonsensical inside jokes with friends, traveling (or dreaming of my next travel destination), at a concert, or planning for next Halloween. I’m a metalhead and a self-proclaimed French fry connoisseur. I also own way too many hoodies, pairs of sunglasses, and pajamas, but never enough books.

I am the author of four historical novels, The Violinist of Venice, The Most Beautiful Woman in Flore

Thanks so much for reading THE VIOLINIST OF VENICE; I'm so thrilled to hear you enjoyed it! My third novel, THE SPELLBOOK OF KATRINA VAN TASSEL, will be out October 2nd, and while music is not a focus of that book, it is an element of the story. My fourth novel (which I can't say too much about yet!) is much more in the political realm than the artistic. With all that said, I do have a couple more music-focused novels on the back burner - here's hoping that my publisher wants to publish those at some point in the future!(less)

Hopefully soon I should be able to share more about it!(less)

Quotes by Alyssa Palombo  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“The city of Florence lay sprawled out below us, a mass of both brownstone and red-tiled roofs nestled among the brilliant, vibrantly green, rolling Tuscan hills. Above it all rose the massive dome of Santa Maria del Fiore, Brunelleschi’s wonder, famous the world over. The cathedral rose above the city like a great sleeping dragon, watching over its domain even in its slumber.”
Alyssa Palombo, The Most Beautiful Woman in Florence: A Story of Botticelli

“We had heard of this modern wonder in Genoa, of course, but seeing it in person was an entirely different matter. The dome was egg-shaped, and had been finished with reddish tiles beneath the great white ribs of its supports. A cross sat at the very top, blessing those who beheld it from below as well as pointing upward into the heavens. As I gazed upon it, I marveled that so great a structure could stay upright without collapsing in on itself. It seemed a frightening thing, that lowly mankind had dared to build something that ascended so close to God.”
Alyssa Palombo, The Most Beautiful Woman in Florence: A Story of Botticelli
