Gen LaGreca

Writing novels with innovative plots, strong romance, and inspirational, liberty-spirited themes

Meet award-winning author Gen LaGreca

Provocative ideas to challenge the mind. Passionate characters to excite the spirit. Tales of unusual people doing unusual things. Stories of pressing issues and unnerving conflicts. Adventures that inspire us to rise above obstacles and reach for our dreams. These are the qualities you'll find in Gen LaGreca's novels.

At a time when plot stories and character studies, as well as romances and thrillers, often appear in separate categories of fiction, and thought-provoking themes are rare, Gen combines a rich mix of story elements in each satisfying read. Gen's variety of life experiences — in science and business, as well as in philosophy and writing—brings vibrant characters, big issues, thematic depth, and an outside-the-box approach to her novels.

Displaying her talent and virtuosity in different genres, Gen created Noble Vision, a romantic medical thriller, and A Dream of Daring, a historical murder mystery. Each book offers a page-turning tale that is lovingly crafted, award winning, Amazon best-selling, and critically acclaimed. On the playful side, Gen offers her romantic short story, Three Days to Find a Wife.

Gen’s newest novel is the science fiction adventure and romance Fugitive From Asteron.
