Giro di Mondo – Mark & Marie Fenn

Marie Billings 

A former attorney, Lisa—who pronounces her surname "Scott o lee nee, like fettuccine"—writes legal thrillers, stand-alone novels and humor. Her latest is Someone Knows, a story of how a single decision can undo a family, how our past can derail our present, and how not guilty doesn't always mean innocent.

Lisa’s novels are known for their emotionality and their warm and down-to-earth characters, which resonate with readers and reviewers long after they have finished the books. She also writes a weekly column titled 'Chick Wit' with her daughter Francesca Serritella. It's a witty and fun take on life from a woman’s perspective, published in the Philadelphia Inquirer.
