George Gmitro and his wife Tracee live in DeLand, Florida. He can often be seen relaxing with friends and family at many of the downtown DeLand shops and restaurants. George and his family are active in supporting the many centers in the area that celebrate life. The author has a particular passion for bringing the sensitive discussion of abortion to the classroom where the characters in VIABLE@140 and his future novels can come alive to generate heartfelt debate. It is George Gmitro's hope that his "Write For Life Series" instills a passion for life affirming choices and for readers to become better equipped to engage with those experiencing a crisis in a compassionate and encouraging way.
