“History, Aristotle says, represents things only as they are, while fiction represents them as they might be and ought to be.”
— Albert J. Nock, Memoirs of a Superfluous Man
Gen LaGreca

Genevieve (Gen) LaGreca writes novels with innovative plots, strong romance, and themes that glorify individual freedom and independence.

Gen’s debut novel is Noble Vision. This romantic medical thriller won two important national literary awards. It was a ForeWord magazine Book of the Year Finalist. It was also a finalist in the Writer’s Digest International Book Awards contest — one of only six picks 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.

Showing her virtuosity across genre lines, Gen’s second offering is the historical novel A Dream of Daring. This antebellum murder mystery took Finalist in Regional Fiction in the 2013 Next Generation Indie Book Awards and also Finalist in Multicultural Fiction in the same contest.

On the playful side is Gen’s breezy, romantic short story, “Three Days to Find a Wife.”

Gen is currently at work on her third novel. She also wrote the screenplay for Noble Vision.

In addition to her fiction, Gen also writes social and political commentaries, which have appeared in Mises Daily, Forbes, Real Clear Markets, The Orange County Register, The Daily Caller, The Gainesville Sun, and other publications. Her short book of essays, The Pioneer vs. the Welfare State, combines her engaging writing style with in-depth analysis of urgent issues and concerns.

Gen appeared on The Glenn Beck Show on national television to discuss her provocative article, “The Self-Help Guide to Living in a Free Society,” published in The New Individualist magazine.

Gen has been a lively guest speaker at local, regional, and national events, including Students for Liberty and FreedomFest conferences, where she discusses the powerful role of fiction in portraying ideas, as well as other topics. She’s had the distinction of being an invited participant at Liberty Fund colloquia.

On the personal side, Gen is engaged to a university professor; she and he live in Chicago.

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.
