Jo Vraca


Jo Vraca (1969-) was born in Rosolini, Sicily to a seamstress and farmer. She grew up in Melbourne, Australia after her family immigrated in 1971. She is a born liar, and writing seems like the best outlet for all kinds of story-telling.

Smashwords Interview

What are your five favorite books, and why?
Books about family dynamics tend to rock my boat - The Corrections, anything by Anne Tyler, Gabriel Garcia Marquez. And of course tragic love!
What do you read for pleasure?
Lately, I've been reading biographies. The last few biographies include:
- Kids by Patti Smith
- Transformer, about Lou Reed
I'm about to start re-reading a bunch of Agatha Christie books that I found in my garage. I went through a huge Christie phase when I was around 19 so I'm looking forward to picking them back up.
