Alex Gino

Alex Gino

Author of George

Bio: Born and raised on Staten Island, NY, Alex has lived in Philadelphia, PA; Brooklyn, NY; Astoria (Queens), NY; and Northampton, MA. In 2008 Alex moved across the country in an old RV with their then-partner and two cats to California where they now enjoy the heck out of living in Oakland. After countless revisions, breaks of frustration, and days spent staring at drafts willing them to be better, Alex is delighted and proud to share the debut novel George. When not on the road promoting George, they is working on a second middle grade novel that incorporates issues of Deafness, police violence, baby sisters, and first crushes. Alex Gino loves glitter, ice cream, gardening, awe-ful puns, and stories that reflect the diversity and complexity of being alive. They have been involved with queer and trans activism for twenty years.
