Gio (Jo) Iannotti

North Redington Beach, Florida, United States


Gio Iannotti has had a passion for writing all of her life. In fact, in high school her teachers used to tell her that she had a special talent that she should pursue. She even spent a summer in England studying drama and literature.

When it came time to choose a major in college, parental conviction compelled her to select studies that would help her support herself the way that, the argument went, writing never could.

After receiving Bachelorís degrees in Business Education and Accounting and an M.B.A. in Finance, Gio applied her literary skills to the preparation of major business proposals and various other financial reports that she was assigned responsibility for. The effort was not without reward. Anyone capable of making cold hard statistics interesting has had to have learned a good thing ---- or two. The business world also taught her something else ---- it taught her perseverance.

Whenever Gio would get a break from her duties as a business woman, wife, mother, elder care giver she found herself heading for the computer.

ďItís hard to explain what itís like to be a writer. I never know exactly where all of the words come from, but when I sit down by the keyboard, they start pouring out. When you canít release them, the indescribable feeling is closest to exasperation. When you have a quiet hour or two to yourself, though, the indescribable feeling is the closest thing to heaven.Ē
