Sleeping Sardines

Lola the Hamster

Lola provides weekly stories about motherhood, travel, and romance for Sleeping Sardines.

Meet Lola the Hamster, a full woman who has seen a thing or two in her day. Born on a freight ship in the neutral waters between Key West and Cuba during the Castro regime, Lola has never claimed a true home or country of origin—and that’s the way she likes it. After spending the majority of her teenage years as a poker dealer in high stakes gentleman’s clubs, Lola bore three triplets without knowing she was pregnant. Forced into a quieter life, Lola took up editorial writing and is also working on memoir: La Hamster Diabla.

Lola provides stories about motherhood, travel, and romance for Sleeping Sardines. She currently lives with her three children and runs on her wheel almost two hours per day.
