L.M. Giannone
Author of No Vacancy, A Touch of Noir, & All Of Me


I'm a technical writer in the Finance IT field by day, and a writer and poet by night. With a background in Psychology and Statistics, I've been working in the IT industry since 1994, previously as a system developer, business systems analyst, and process reengineer.


I'm the author of two other popular series on Channillo: No Vacancy, a collection of humorous personal essays, and A Touch of Noir, a collection of short stories written in “noir” style.  All of Me, my latest series on Channillo, is a collection of new poems unavailable anywhere else. I'm currently scribing another poetry series, Bits and Pieces, on Wattpad. My poems, all ripped out of my personal life, are also featured on Scriggler, Spillwords, and Niume.  Three of my poems were published in the anthology Poets Across Borders, available at All of Me: A Collection of Short Verse is available in paperback and ebook on Lulu, Amazon, BN, and iBooks. I am collaborating on a poetry series to be available on the market in the second quarter of 2017, along with a third book by third quarter.


In my spare time, I'm an active golfer in the NCGA, an avid New York Yankee and San Francisco Giants baseball fan, and a Film Noir and classic (1940’s-1960’s) film buff.

No Vacancy is a collection of humorous personal essays. Each essay is independent of each other, but together the collection weaves an autobiographical tapestry, at times sad, bizarre, and deeply personal. No skeleton in her closet is safe.

Lisa tackles subjects including grand conspiracies, generation gaps, memory loss, aging, nostalgia, modern technology, Corporate America, airline industry, affairs, addiction, unorthodox relationships, male species, and female anatomy, to name just a few.

A Touch of Noir is a collection of short stories written in "noir" style, featuring immoral, desperate, and sinister characters set in the foggy, shadowy and hilly landscape of post-WWII San Francisco, as well as Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Manhattan, and Chicago.  The stories are primarily told in first person, using language typical of 1940s-1960s.

**Update: A Touch of Noir will be available in paperback/ebook in the fall of 2017, with 9 brand new tales not available here on Channillo. Stay posted and consider joining me again for additional adventures in noir.

The total’s more than the sum of its parts

with numerous scars and broken hearts

the good and the bad,

the happy and sad,

the whole and the damaged,

the pain and the ravaged

on a journey to repair me at last

from the ruin of others long past

a puzzle most incomplete

can you put together all of me?


All of Me is a collection of short verse, haiku and tanka poems. Recurring themes are love, relationships, loss, pain and a little bit of inspiration. Selected poems from this series, and my series on Wattpad "Bits and Pieces", as well as previously unpublished poems, are available on Amazon, Nook, Lulu, and iBooks as "All of Me: A Collection of Short Verse."
