The personal nickname of celebrity Alyssa Milano. Alyssa is also called Lyssa and Lyss.


Born December 19, 1972 in Brooklyn New York, the 5′ 2″ brown-haired Sagittarian has starred in a number of successful venues, such as the starring role in the Broadway play “Annie” at age eight; the perky Samantha “Sam” Micelli on the sitcom WHO’S THE BOSS/ABC/1984-92 and a lusciously desirable witch named Phoebe Halliwell on the fantasy series CHARMED/WB/1998-2006.

Alyssa is not only a talented actress but a singer as well. She had five platinum albums released in Japan. They were titled: “Alyssa,” “Look In My Heart,” “Best in the world,” “Locked In a Dream,” and “Do You See Me?”

In addition, a picture of Alyssa was used as inspiration to create the underwater heroine “Ariel” in the classic 1989 Disney movie The Little Mermaid.

Besides collecting kudos for her acting and singing career, Alyssa has collected a number of tattoos on her body, including a Fairy kneeling in grass on her hip; Rosary beads on back right shoulder blade; Sacred Heart on buttocks; Angel on left ankle; Garland of flowers encircling her right ankle; and Ohm, a Hindu symbol of the ‘Beginning and End’ on inside of her left wrist.


Born in Philadelphia, Jerome Alphonse Holst worked 30 years as a librarian. He has since retired and lives in Greensboro, North Carolina. Mr. Holst is also the author of the children’s books “Norman the Troll,” "Norman the Troll and the Haunted House," and "Gretchen and the Gremlins." In addition, he penned the fantasy novel “The Adventures of Glinda Gale,” a retelling of “The Wizard of Oz" and the reference text “The Encyclopedia of Movie and TV Insults.” .
