Gemini Adams is an artist, educator and award-winning author of several inspiring healthy living books including, The Facebook Diet: 50 Funny Signs of Facebook Addiction and Ways to Unplug with a Digital Detox [1] (Live Consciously, May 2013), which is the first in The Unplug Series [2] — a collection of seriously funny books for social media addicts, geeks and the overly wired world.

In the award-winning book Your Legacy of Love: Realize the Gift in Goodbye, Gemini gives a personal account of her mother's cancer and the insights gained from her death, including the proposition that the bereaved will benefit more from our "emotional assets" — stories, values, wisdom and affection — precious gifts, which can be recorded and left through a Legacy of Love, rather than the financial assets that are typically passed on in a will. This book received the Mom's Choice Gold Award 2010,[3] the Dad's Seal of Approval, became a finalist in the International Book Awards 2010 and has been translated into Chinese and Japanese.

Gemini's articles have appeared in RED magazine, Women's Health, BOOM, Live It Natural, Yahoo.com, and her books have been featured on The Huffington Post,[4] The Today Show,[5] Reuters,[6] Marketing Magazine,[7] The San Francisco Chronicle, The Denver Post, Campus Circle,[8] Ecosalon [9] and Family Health and Wellness Magazine,[10] amongst others.

Gemini is also a contributing author to More Than Money: How to Leave a Lasting Legacy to Your Family (Celebrity Press, 2011), Open to Hope: Inspirational Stories of Healing After Loss (White Press, 2011) and was co-author of the bestseller, The Top 100 Recipes of Happy Kids: Keep Your Child Active, Focused and Alert (Duncan Baird,[11] 2007) with leading British nutritionist, Charlotte Watts.

In 2006, Gemini was awarded the prestigious Winston Churchill Fellowship,[12] which led to her research into The Role of Love in Palliative Care. In 2007, Gemini co-produced a short documentary, entitled Legacy of Love, which won the Audience Award for Best Documentary at the Elevate Film Festival 2007.

Gemini is the daughter of late broadcaster and journalist Andrea Adams, who was the first person to publicize the significance of workplace bullying. It is believed that Andrea coined the expression "workplace bullying" in 1988. Andrea's pioneering book, entitled Bullying at Work: How to Confront and Overcome It, was published by Virago in 1992. Andrea Adams died from ovarian cancer in 1995.
