Gianna Marino

Gianna Marino was born in San Francisco and spent her early years galloping horses through Golden Gate Park. Gianna had several jobs at once: apprenticing a muralist, a jewelry designer, a product designer and driving horse carriages through the park. Between projects and then college, Gianna visited West, East, and North Africa, India, Nepal, Burma, Thailand, Vietnam, Laos, Bhutan, China, Indonesia, Australia, New Zealand, Tahiti, Noumea, crewed on sailboats in Mexico and the Caribbean, and lived in Europe for a time. Her children’s books include ‘Zoopa: An Animal Alphabet,’ ‘One Too Many,’ ‘Meet Me at the Moon,’ ‘Too Tall Houses,’ and ‘Following Papa’s Song.’ Her latest book is ‘Night Animals.’ She now lives and works in the Napa Valley and still gallops on horses.
