Genevieve (Gen) LaGreca writes novels with innovative plots, strong romance, and themes that celebrate personal freedom and independence.
Provocative ideas to challenge the mind and passionate characters to excite the spirit. Stories of unusual people doing unusual things; stories about pressing issues and unnerving conflicts; stories that inspire us to rise above obstacles and reach for our dreams. These are the stories Gen loves to write.
Gen's debut novel is NOBLE VISION. This romantic medical thriller won four literary awards, including two important national accolades. It was a Foreword magazine Book of the Year Finalist. It was also a finalist in the coveted Writer's Digest International Book Awards contest, honoring general fiction published by independent presses. NOBLE VISION garnered praise from magazine magnate Steve Forbes, Nobel laureate Milton Friedman, syndicated columnist Walter E. Williams, and other influential thinkers. Gen also wrote the screenplay for NOBLE VISION.
Showing her virtuosity across genre lines, Gen's second offering is the historical novel A DREAM OF DARING. This antebellum murder mystery took six book awards, including the celebrated Foreword Book of the Year.
Gen's new novel is the science fiction adventure and romance for teens, young adults, and the "forever young": FUGITIVE FROM ASTERON. "Exceptionally well written from beginning to end, FUGITIVE FROM ASTERON is an impressive and original science fiction action/adventure story. Very highly recommended." MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW. This novel won an Eric Hoffer Book Award.
In addition to fiction, Gen also writes social and political commentaries, which have appeared in Forbes, The Orange County Register, The Daily Caller, Real Clear Markets, Mises Daily, The Gainesville Sun, and other publications.
Prior to fiction writing, Gen worked as a pharmaceutical chemist, business consultant, and corporate writer. She holds an undergraduate degree in chemistry from Polytechnic Institute of New York and a graduate degree in philosophy from Columbia University.
Her variety of life experiences--in science and business, as well as in philosophy and writing--brings vibrant characters, urgent issues, thematic depth, and an outside-the-box approach to Gen's novels. Their sweeping themes of self-sovereignty and the triumph of the individual attract thoughtful readers across genre lines.
Gen's three novels are available in print and ebook format.
