Monica La Porta author of The Lonely Wolf answers five easy questions to help readers get to know her better.
Monica La Porta is an Italian who landed in Seattle several years ago. Despite popular feelings about the Northwest weather, she finds the mist and the rain the perfect conditions to write. Being a strong advocate of universal acceptance and against violence in any form and shape, she is also glad to have landed precisely in Washington State. She is the author of The Ginecean Chronicles, a dystopian/science fiction series set on the planet Ginecea where women rule over a race of enslaved men and heterosexual love is considered a sin. She also published two other series: the futuristic love story across the universe, Elios & Gaia, narrated in two books; and the paranormal romance/urban fantasy series The Immortals set in Rome. Stop by her blog to read about her miniatures, sculptures, paintings, and her beloved beagle, Nero. Sometimes, she also posts about her writing.
What's your favorite down-home family style meal?
Like every Italian, I love to cook, but I must have been Japanese in another life, because my favorite family style meal is a big pot of ramen soup, filled with fresh ingredients.
What is your go-to meal when you dine out?
Either sushi or dim sum.
Describe the perfect vacation.
Cancun, my husband, and a kindle.
What are your hobbies?
When I am not reading or walking, I paint, make sculptures with pasta ceramica (a homemade dough made with corn flour and white glue,) build dollhouses, and I create felt food to decorate my Christmas tree.
When you read for pleasure, what kind of books do you choose?
Love stories, in any genre. Paranormal with a sprinkle of dystopian and steampunk is my favorite, but I love space opera as well.
