Gina grew up in South Lyon but has one of her earliest, fondest memories in Brighton — that was where she saw Star Wars when it came out in 1977. That started a lifelong love of movies and stories.
Gina now lives in Livonia with her three four-legged fuzzy "babies," dogs Sammy and Joey and cat Kitty. While working for 10 years on the midnight shift at St. Joseph's Emergency Room in Ann Arbor, she completed her bachelor's degree in English in 2002.
Gina combined her love of writing and health care background into an eight-year career as a proposal writer for i3, a pharmaceutical research company, where she still works.
