Gina Ardito is a multi-published author, freelance editor, mentor, and houseplant killer. Her lighthearted contemporary romances are available in hardcover, digital, and paperback editions. She also writes sweeping historical romances under the pen name, Katherine Brandon. Over the years, she has worked with a NY house, small-press publisher, and now explores the challenging world of indie publishing. In fact, her first indie-pubbed work, Eternally Yours, Book I of her Afterlife Series, was a 2013 Kindle Book Review Finalist for Best Book of the Year in the Romance Category.

As a professional speaker, Gina has hosted workshops for fiction writers and readers around the country from Maine to California, as well as for online groups, which reach members around the world. With her fun, approachable style and a list of highly informative topics to choose from, writing groups have routinely requested repeat appearances and now schedule Gina for workshops on a regular basis each year.

In 2012, Gina was named a Woman of Outstanding Leadership in the field of Publishing by the International Association of Women in Leadership (IWLA) for her commitment to career, family, and community. 

Gina lives on Long Island with her husband (and oldest boy), Philip; her two clever and brilliant kids, Tori and Nick; a bionic dog, two deranged cats; and a host of characters inside her head, clamoring for their stories to be told.
