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)

I loved this book! Fast paced, with excellent characters, this was an absorbing read, as are all of Cleeton's books. It's great to see some historical fiction set in Florida, a place I've visited a lot and which holds a special place in my heart.
