"Gina Fava provides a fresh voice in a genre that can be predictable. Fava takes the reader on a ride so fast and twisted...you'll be riveted to the page."

-Suspense Magazine



Gina Fava is the author of award winning short stories and acclaimed novels The Race and The Sculptor (Best Mystery/Suspense Ebook by 2015 Indie Book Awards). Her thriller, Formula, is the much-anticipated sequel to The Race. Readers compare her stories to those of Harlan Coben, Lisa Gardner, Lee Child, Dan Brown, and Daniel Silva.

Gina also writes feature articles on travel, Italian culture, art, wine, cooking, books, and cinema, and has released a collection of recipes and essays on her published work, entitled Un Momento: A Taste of Italian-American Pastimes. She's now researching her next book in historical fiction.

Born and raised in Buffalo, NY, Gina is a relentlessly loyal Sabres and Bills fan. She graduated the University at Buffalo and later earned a law degree but it was the bomb scares, run-ins with the Italian military intelligence service, and car chases she endured while studying at the American University of Rome that spurred her interest in writing heart-pounding thrillers.  

Gina lives with her husband and kids and their dogs, Lupo and Siena, in New England. She loves making pasta with her family, watching LOST, reading other people's suspense novels, and roaming Italy to hunt down her characters' favorite wines.
