Gino Gammaldi Writes Children's Book, THE SECRET AT ST. MARY'S


Altona Meadows, Australia

After working in the corporate world for 26 years and moving to community-based work, Gino Gammaldi began writing "The Secret at St. Mary's: An Adventure with Cosmo the Dog and Bronte the Cat" (published by Trafford Publishing).

"The Secret at St. Mary's" is a mystery based on animal characters that live in a bayside suburb where everyday life is happy and fun. Cosmo is a lovable golden-haired Kelpie-Labrador who is always excited to experience new things. Bronte is a gray-and-white moggy cat who likes to visit her friend, Cosmo, whenever she can.

Being curious by nature, Bronte learns of a secret at St. Mary's church, and convinces Cosmo to help her discover where the secret will take them. Of course, it's the misadventures that drive the story along.

"There is intrigue and mystery in a fun way that will engage the imagination of young children," says Gammaldi. "The message of the story is fun and understanding. Children will get a sense of what can be achieved if one really tries hard and if one asks for help."
