Gino lives in Altona Meadows, a suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. He is married to Grace, and they have three children and six grandchildren. He spent twenty-six years in corporate management. He decided to retire from this in 1998 to concentrate more on family, community-based activities, acting, and celebrancy. He was inducted into the office of Justice of the Peace by His Excellency the Governor in Council in 1999 and, some years later, was appointed a commonwealth-authorized celebrant by the federal attorney general of Australia.
This book was inspired by his avid interest in science fiction from a very early age. The two main characters from his earlier book, The Secret at St. Mary’s, are reunited in this story to take us on a journey of goodwill and intrigue in sectors of the universe yet unchartered. In this book, we experience the thrill of travelling to strange new worlds and meeting aliens that are like nothing ever before encountered. There is also the aspiration of new hope for peace and harmony among those who seek this. Our two travelers achieve what seems to be the impossible, against all odds and great danger to themselves.
