PitchWars 2017- #Pimpmybio

Welcome Mentors, Mentees and those who are just plain curious! My name is Gina, and this is my #PitchWars 2017 #pimpmybio page.

Allow me to introduce myself.

My greatest accomplishment is being the Mom of four wonderful kids. Everything else is icing on the cake for me. With ages ranging from 23 to 8, to say they keep me busy is an understatement. While it may be tiring, it’s the best job I’ve ever had.

MY WRITING STYLE

The hard cold truth is I write the stories my brain tells me to write. *HINT* My brain doesn’t know about a crazy little thing called genre. To date I have completed an NA Fantasy, a YA Thriller, an MG adventure, an Adult Fantasy and an Adult Sci-Fi.

I once compared my brain to Willy Wonka’s factory, but I think Forrest Gump’s box of chocolates might be more on target. When I sit down to start a new book, you never know what you’re gonna get.

    ****** MY 2017 PITCHWARS SUBMISSION******

    This year I’m entering my Adult near future Sci-Fi novel. The boundaries of technology and science are pushed with grave consequence in this Frankenstein retelling set in a frigid underground bunker during America’s second Civil War. The working title is:

SUBJECT ONE

Looking forward to making new writing friends, Mentor Twitter teasers and making this story even more bad ass than it already is through revisions. You can teach punctuation, you can’t teach work ethic. Whatever the outcome, I’m committed to work hard on this project until it’s perfect.

And to all the brave souls who read this to the bottom, thank you.

Ciao!

OMG!

Has it been almost eight months since my last post?  Gasp! It has.  Want to know why?  I have been busy bringing fantastic new characters to life with chapter after chapter of page turning adventures.  Some of the characters are sweet and some are very naughty.  All of them unforgettable and I can’t wait for you to meet them.  2016 is the year.  I feel it!  Agents and publishers prepare to be excited.  You’ve never met anyone quite like me!

Moving Forward

New story, new characters, LOTS of potential.  I have several projects I’m promoting right now but I’ve got a good feeling brewing about my most recent.  Crossing my fingers and toes that this round of agent queries is GOLD!  This one has crazy potential!!!!!  I know it!
