About the Author

Marina Fiorato is half-Venetian and a history graduate of Oxford University and the University of Venice, where she specialized in the study of Shakespeare's plays as an historical source. She has worked as an illustrator, an actress, and a film reviewer, and designed tour visuals for rock bands including U2 and the Rolling Stones. Her historical fiction includes The Daughter of Siena and her debut novel, The Glassblower of Murano, which was an international bestseller. She was married on the Grand Canal in Venice, and now lives in London with her family.

Reviews

"Fiorato creates her own masterpiece set at the height of Medici power. Renaissance Italy comes alive in brilliant sights and sounds from marbled halls to filthy sewers. Luciana is irrepressible, unabashed, and an absolute hoot while Guido foils her nicely as the learned, noble Holmes to her Watson." --Booklist"Marina Fiorato has fashioned a double tale of artistry, love, and intrigue, plotted as cunningly as her characters commit treachery....It took my breath away." --Susan Vreeland, author of Girl in Hyacinth Blue, on THE GLASSBLOWER OF MURANO"An intriguing mix of history, mystery, art, music, poetry, romance, and politics....Gripping....Writing with charm and authenticity, Fiorato produces a blend of historical mystery and modern romance that is thoroughly entertaining." --Booklist on THE GLASSBLOWER OF MURANO"Those who enjoy intrigue and European history will be easily drawn into this romantic story." --Publishers Weekly on THE GLASSBLOWER OF MURANO"Fiorato captivates her reader as surely and intricately as the beautiful city of Venice enchants her characters. A fascinating tale of mystery and dedication, of love and betrayal." --Kate Furnivall, author of The Russian Concubine, on THE GLASSBLOWER OF MURANO"The Glassblower of Murano is a compelling story, richly detailed, with wonderful, memorably drawn characters." --Diane Haeger, author of The Ruby Ring, on THE GLASSBLOWER OF MURANO"Marina Fiorato has beautifully recreated the bright, glittering world of the seventeenth-century glassblower, and nestled it surely within a compelling contemporary romance." --Jeanne Kalogrides, author of The Borgia Bride, on THE GLASSBLOWER OF MURANO
