About Lisa Fantino

Once upon a time, there was a little girl who couldn't wait to tell the world her story. Her parents bought her a typewriter and tape-recorder for her third Christmas and so it began . . .

NBC, CBS, 1010 WINS, WRKI and many more stations and networks all gave her air time. She even produced her own celeb chat show on TV along the way. She gave mic with the best of them, chatting with everyone from Bon Jovi, Robert Plant and Bono to Walter Cronkite, Yogi Berra and President Bush, the elder.

Her mother gave her wings, her father a foundation, and noted journalist Lisa Fantino traveled the world, losing her heart and soul along the magical Amalfi Coast and finding herself along the way. The result is "Amalfi Blue - lost and found in the south of Italy," to be published January 2013. It's a true story of love and lust, men and women, friendships and family, death and re-birth, set in some of the most beautiful locations in Europe. Toss in kidnapping, intrigue, hot salsa nights and sex and you've got passion, Italian style. Join Lisa as she shares what it takes to live la vita bella.
