Gina Gareri-Watkins is a graduate student in the Master of Arts in Professional Writing program at Kennesaw State University.  Gina’s columns focus on life after 50 and doing time down south, although very few people outside of grad class have actually read them.  She has spent 27 years as a wife — and nearly 20 as a mother — with the recent addition of two dogs increasing caretaking issues exponentially.  Her work has yet to appear in more than 500 newspapers in the United States and abroad, but if the Sweet Potato Queens can do it, so can she.

In her spare time Gina does not play guitar in a rock band (as half her classmates seem to), but instead serves as Snack Mom for her daughter’s sports teams, a job she has down after 15 years.  Gina currently lives in Alpharetta, Georgia, with her two daughters and their correspondingly ungrateful dogs, but is always subject to an unexpected relocation due to an insensitive career-hopping husband.
