Picking Up My Shattered Pieces
Bouncing Back When Life Throws You a Curve Ball
Gina Pastore, author of Picking Up My Shattered Pieces, is the co-host of Real Life with Gina Pastore and David James, a radio broadcast heard Saturday evenings throughout Southern California on KKLA 99.5 FM and through the web at kkla.com. Growing up in Upland, California, she married her childhood sweetheart, Frank Pastore, a highly regarded pitcher in the Cincinnati Reds organization. After eight seasons in major league baseball, Frank became the radio talk show host of The Frank Pastore Show heard on KKLA in Los Angeles. In 2012, Frank was seriously injured in a motorcycle accident and died a month later at the age of fifty-five. Following her husband’s tragic death, Gina enjoys encouraging people through her broadcasts and inspirational speaking events.
What People are Saying
"When Gina told me she was writing a book, I had a one-word response--'Perfect!' Her desire to share her experiences with the platform that Frank created for her is something I tip my hat to."

"Everyone who heard Frank was blessed to hear him, and by 'everyone,' I mean everyone of any faith or no faith...This is why I am so touched by Gina's powerful book, which tells the 'rest of the story.'"
