As a nurse, author, and teacher for over 30 years. She has worked in all areas of Nursing. Her Masters in Transpersonal Studies focused on new modalities for healing, changes in consciousness, and cross-cultural healing. Carol is the author or co-author of over 8 books, including Los Angeles Times and New York Times bestsellers. Carol was the longtime companion of the author, Mario Puzo for over 20 years, until his death in 1999, and in 2001 she completed his book The Family, which was published by Judith Regan of Harper Collins. It was a best seller.

"Gino recollects her 20-year romance with Mario Puzo, the author of The Godfather. An impressively forthcoming reminiscence full of creative insight." --Kirkus Reviews

"I adored Mario Puzo and know why he adored Carol Gino. If you want to know what love is, read this and weep." --Judith Regan, Publisher of The Family, by Mario Puzo and The Godfather Notebook by Francis Ford Coppola

"Carol Gino, the other half of the Mario and Carol duo, has written a luminous portrait of the enchantment that happens when two people love deeply, work together on all levels and co-create wonders of living and invention." --Jean Houston, author of The Wizard of Us

"These two unique souls make a union like no other... It should be hard to capture this dynamic on the page...except Carol does it here so effortlessly. I knew both as writers but never knew what a love story they lived together. Until now." --Joni Evans, editor, publisher, literary agent

"Beautifully written! The magic of exchanging philosophies--the true magic of love. I sobbed and laughed along with them. Quite honestly, I've been holding back finishing--unlike me--because I want everything to last longer..." --Lou Ann Walker, author of A Loss for Words

"This book is about life, living, and creativity... Far more than just being about two people--it is a textbook on life and all its emotions, from pain to joy. It's a book with a heart." --Bernie Siegel, MD author of 365 Prescriptions For The Soul and Love Medicine & Miracles

"Gino delivers a readable, intimate look at an important figure in 20th century popular culture. Puzo fans will appreciate this book, as will anyone interested in how two strong personalities can flourish together." --Blueink Review

"Lively conversations are reproduced with revealing disclosures, including about the underlying motivations behind some of Puzo's most memorable creations. . . ." --Foreword Clarion Reviews
