Gina is a born and bred Hoosier and grew up in Northwest Indiana. She currently lives in a small Indiana town that is peaceful and quiet and a haven for wildlife that live in the woods behind her home. She is an animal and nature lover and thinks all living things are God’s creations and all forms of life should be respected.
Gina is a retired Mental Health Therapist and saw people and life at their worst for 34 years. She can’t change the world but she can write about a world she would like to see, and write about people at their best or trying to be their best.
Gina is currently an AmeriCorps Service Member who has been placed at a local Food Bank and assists in distributing food to those with food insecurities.
She is also a die hard Chicago Cubs fan. Her mother was a Cubs fan and when she passed away, Gina picked up the torch and carries it proudly, especially after their 2016 World Series win.
She hopes you enjoy this book and look for the sequel she is in the process of writing now.
Closer to Home is a story about a couple, Kat and Sam, who have both endured near fatal accidents. They are both in surgery and are hovering somewhere between life and death when the story begins.
Kat faces what she thinks will be her final judgement with a mysterious Higher Power only to be placed in a situation where she either accomplishes four missions for this mysterious Higher Power or face an eternity in limbo. Sam joins her on her journey later. They both have tragic back stories that are resolved through this process.
The missions are to reverse four mistakes made by the Higher Power who can’t reverse them himself because of his image of perfection. If the missions are successful, the end results will revolutionize politics, social welfare, social and racial justice and nearly deplete homelessness and juvenile violence.
