[104] Fiona Davis, author of The Lions of Fifth Avenue


“It’s not a traditional love story and I thought, now is the time to do that. Authors have to take risks and not be afraid that readers might be offended. If I like this book, then that’s enough.” – Fiona Davis

Fiona Davis is the New York Times bestselling author of historical novels set in iconic New York City buildings, including The Lions of Fifth Avenue, which was a Good Morning America book club pick. She began her career in New York City as an actress, working on Broadway, off-Broadway, and in regional theater. After getting a master’s degree at Columbia Journalism School, she fell in love with writing, leapfrogging from editor to freelance journalist before finally settling down to write fiction. Her books have been translated into over a dozen languages and she’s based in New York City
