Alexa Spagnoli

Alexa Spagnoli was born in a small town in Michigan and grew up in a private beach community on the shoes of Lake Erie. At the age of 18 she went to Las Vegas and decided to stay, moving in with a Chicago mob associate, and began a whirlwind of a life. Her skills allowed her to become, a bookie, a model, an Outcall service owner and finally, owner of an Event Planning company.

Through the decades, Vegas morphed from sophisticated adult amusements, to family-friendly in the Eighties and early Nineties, to “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas” in the 2000s, Alexa morphed along with it, finding opportunities to flourish. As Vegas became the biggest tourist attraction in the US, the money and opportunities got bigger. As the Mafia was run out of town by the Nevada Gaming Commission, she transitioned to Event Planning, utilizing her contacts to become a legitimate success in convention-rife Las Vegas.

In her debut novel Mafia Madame, she chronicles a truly unique Las Vegas story. Her real-life experiences color her gripping prose, lending authenticity and richness to her storytelling. Alexa refers to Mafia Madame as her almost-memoir, because she lived nearly everything in the novel. In her spare time Alexa enjoys reading, hiking, cooking and fine wine.
