Loretta A. Condino-Grupp


L.A.C.-Grupp [Loretta A. Condino-Grupp] is me! I am an enthusiastic writer, wife to the love of my life for 20 years (Christopher P. Grupp), mother of three creative, perceptive, and active children. As a life-long learner, I am truly, constantly, re-inventing myself.

Inspiration for my novel comes from my love for my students – past and present and future, my passion for mythology and religious narratives, and from the family stories that I grew up with at home.

My family, who are originally from Lucca, Italy, would sit around the kitchen table for hours talking, and I would listen to my Nonna, Mother, aunts, and cousins talk about the Old Ways in Italy – what they believe, practice, and live.

Thank you for reading my novel, and I hope that this experience reverberates with you...

Speaking of which, please look for my upcoming Fate Spinner – Book Two, and Fate Shearer – Book Three, the second and third installments for The Living Fates Trilogy.

Love to All!!!
