Carol Gino RN, MA, has been a nurse, author and teacher for years. She has worked in all areas of nursing including Intensive Care, the Burn Unit, Pediatrics, Pediatric Intensive Care, and Hospice Care for the terminally ill.

Her first book "The Nurse's Story" published by Simon and Schuster. It was a feature of the Book of the Month Club and Nurses Book Club and was on PW's list for six weeks. Carol did two cross-country tours for The Nurse's Story: which included TV, radio and print media.

She has appeared on several TV and radio shows including "The Today Show", "Charlie Rose", "Houston Live", "Regis", "AM Los Angeles", etc. The Nurse's Story was serialized in the New York Daily News, Chicago Tribune, Washington Post etc.. People Magazine did a feature article on her, and she has been highlighted in many local and national papers.

Ms. Gino's second book "Rusty's Story" sold 350,000 copies and again, Carol did a 15 city media tour. That book received the Epilepsy Association's National Book Award and was on the New York Times bestseller list for 5 weeks. She received the Service Award from the Epilepsy Association of Ohio and spoke to many epilepsy associations. Ciba Geigy made her their spokesperson for the anti-convulsion drug, Tegretol.

In 1997, Kensington Books published Carol Gino's new book about the death of her grandson: "Then An Angel Came.." Both her previous books, "The Nurse's Story" and "Rusty's Story" have been reprinted.

Ms. Gino still acts as a Nursing consultant. Her Masters in Transpersonal Studies focused on new modalities for healing, changes in consciousness, and cross-cultural healing.

Ms. Gino was a keynote speaker at the National SIDS Convention in 1997, and she was a speaker at the Bereavement Convention in upstate New York, entitled "Helping Families Cope with Grief".

She began her own publishing house called Starwater Press Ltd. to publish spiritual and angel books long before they were in mainstream consciousness. Since then she has also started aah-ha! Books in 1996 (Help for Hard Times - clear and simple) for her more mainstream titles.
