About this author

Gary Caruso lives in northern Virginia with his wife Jill, but their favorite place is in Ohio with their three beautiful grandchildren. Although Gary is exhilarated when he sits down to write, teaching middle school science is his first love. He’s passionate about empowering students to make thoughtful decisions and positive choices in life. Gary enjoys reading, especially fiction that blurs the line between what’s real and what’s fantasy. He never imagined becoming a writer until an ordinary car ride on a spring day jolted an unlikely thought into his head. Gary’s early experience writing is a reminder that no matter how intimidating the challenge, action and determination are the foundations for fulfilling any dream. Gary has an insatiab ...more

Until I Die Again by Gary A. Caruso
Gary Caruso liked a quote
A Return to Love by Marianne Williamson
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.Marianne Williamson

The Dark Side of Truth by Gary A. Caruso


message 21: by Gary

Gary Caruso I just released the first book of a new mystery series called The Dark Side of Truth. It's a powerful book about friendship and loyalty, wrapped within plenty action and suspense. Yet at its core, The Dark Side of Truth is a heart-warming story about Will Reed and his challenges of making life-threatening choices to protect the people he loves most dearly.

I hope you'll read The Dark Side of Truth soon. From Middle school to middle age, The Dark Side of Truth will appeal and entertain everyone.

Thank you to the many friends and fans who have sent me messages of support. I appreciate your enthusiasm. I'm really excited about this story too!
