They thought the Detroit Mob War was about money…
Max Denaro is a top guy in the most powerful Italian Mafia family called the Scalici Squad. So whatever Max wants, he gets. And the notorious Detroit mobster wanted Sofia Spera since he first laid eyes on her singing her heart out on stage at the grand opening of the Book-Cadillac Hotel.
Once married to the mob, nobody, including her over-protective father, Giacomo, can keep her safe from the life-threatening danger that comes along with being Mrs. Denaro. To stay alive, Sofia must use the only weapons available during the Roaring Twenties - her smarts, sexuality, and stellar aim. But, in doing so, Sofia also ignites the infamous Detroit Mob War.
Seen through the eyes of an eighteen-year-old woman, Giacomo's Daughter is not your typical Mafia story. The first of a trilogy, the Savone Sisters' debut novel gives an honest, gripping portrayal of an Italian Mafia wife swept into a dark criminal underworld during Prohibition in the volatile yet vibrant Detroit, Michigan.
Diana was born in Trenton, Michigan, and raised in Phoenix, Arizona, with her three older siblings by Italian immigrant parents. Her father, Angelo Savone, is a retired factory worker of Ford Motor Co. Her mother, Anna Savone, is an entrepreneur of a drapery manufacturing business.
Diana always excelled in the creative arts and would consistently be found drawing, painting, writing poetry, dancing, and performing. She was on a competitive cheer squad that won third in Nationals and was also voted most creative her senior year of high school.
Shortly upon graduation, Diana moved to Los Angeles, where she began working in the costume department for the film and television industry. Inspired to take her first acting class after working on the independent film, 'The Open Road,' starring the great Jeff Bridges, she studied the dramatic arts intensely at the repertory Playhouse West theatre, a division of Sanford Meisner's Neighborhood Playhouse in New York. It was there that Diana took her first writing class and was encouraged to study comedy due to her natural comedic timing.
Diana soon graduated from The Second City Hollywood's conservatory program, where she co-wrote and performed in premium sketch shows. She's also completed the Core Track offered at The Groundlings school on the first try. It was there that Diana's instructors told her to never stop writing.
She is writing and producing partners with her sister, Rosanna, known professionally as the Savone Sisters. They created the one-woman show starring Diana called 'Italian AF: One Woman. Six Characters. Zero Mob Ties.' that debuted at The Whitefire Theatre's SOLOFEST 2018. They are the authors of the historical fiction novel, 'Giacomo's Daughter,' available Valentine's Day 2020.
