Literary Las Vegas: Christina Vitagliano

Las Vegas entrepreneur Christina Vitagliano, founder of Monster Mini Golf, a franchise of indoor, glow-in-the-dark, monster-themed miniature golf centers, which includes the local Kiss By Monster Mini Golf, is author of “Gene Simmons is a Powerful and Attractive Man And Other Irrefutable Facts,” illustrated by Corey Marier and Craig Marier.

The parody isn’t just authorized, as it features a foreword by Simmons himself, who writes in third-person, saying things such as, “Gene Simmons planned on being a success the moment he launched himself out of his mother’s womb” and more.

In the book, Vitagliano shares more than 250 fun and outlandish “facts” on subjects ranging from Simmons’ love life and fans to his finances and famous tongue. Also in the mix are kids’ answers to questions about the iconic rocker.
