Gail Esola, aka Gia Sola

Writer of Fiction, Speeches, Advertising, and Annual Reports (!)

Gia grew up as Gail in the New York metropolitan area and has been passionate about writing something or other since the third grade. She studied at NYU and The New School and made her living in the corporate world, crafting speeches, advertising copy, annual reports, and the like for twenty years on both coasts. She's also done volunteer work with the non-profit community, including stints as an adult literacy tutor, grant writer, and newsletter editor.

Believing that passion is what moves us, Gia has assumed her new persona in order to take up the challenge of writing erotica and other fiction. She's also been polishing her poetry. She hopes to have something substantial published before the end of the decade. Then she'll see what happens next.

But instead of our sitting in a room together, maybe drinking coffee like they do at AA, we sit alone at our computers, a dictionary in one hand, pencil in the other. (complete article...)

Erotica: Licking the Language Gap (And Other Things) April 25, 2006 (Gia Sola) Teasing your readers with naughty words can be a real turn-on, but can one type with hairy palms? A discourse on the writing of dirty stories. (complete article...)
