Biography

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Gi Marie Arena

I was born in northern New Jersey into an Italian-American family during one of the most exciting times of our nation. I spent half of my career creating luxurious coiffures and the other half creating correspondence and proof-reading contracts for VPs and CEOs who were involved in a variety of industries. A rebel when it came to academia, I disliked school and was a poor student who just made it with a passing grade. At thirty-something, I attended college and progressed to a 3.8 GPA, but quit after a year. In 2002 my husband and I uprooted from New Jersey and now reside in Flagler County, Florida.

Thou Art Orca - 2017 - Under the name Gi Arena
The nucleus of this story is the result of the awakening of a dormant passion that surfaced after I saw the documentary “Blackfish” which aired in 2013. Much of my story-line was developed utilizing an amazing and wonderful gift—the ability to dream. I co-mingled my wild imagination with reality that was gleaned from documented facts concerning orcas in captivity. The fantastical tidbits fit the theme and paint a visual for certain narratives within these pages. Throughout the book my encounters become more frequent and my connection with these magnificent creatures is obvious. As events unfold, I am more and more able to grasp their higher intellect and innate sense of self-awareness, and I clearly see the injustice and cruelty of holding these precious beings in captivity. You will notice that throughout the story I refer to these sea mammals as “who” instead of the typical “which” or “that”, the correct usage when referring to anything non-human. My ultimate goal is to draw massive attention once again, as countless others have done, to these beautiful sea mammals and to highlight the unnaturalness and miserable state of merely existing they experience while imprisoned. I would love to see all of them released into the wild. And, I dare to think that maybe my story will help achieve this.

A featured author in two published anthologies: Tim Baker's Path of the Bullet and Becky Pourchot's A Night Like This.

(This is a nightmare I never thought I would dream. Oh wait, I'm not dreaming!) Malignant? “Did he just say malignant?” I looked up at my husband from the chair that was stationed in the center of the tiny examining room, and without uttering a word between us we knew what Dr. Nicolitz had said. He most definitely said, malignant.
