The Gish Chronicles track the ups and downs of Gish Heart, a 35-year-old PR girl whose business goes under. Now forced to re-join the "real world," she faces an uphill climb (to say the least). Dry and sharp, Gish has seen more than her fair share of drama during this extended period of unemployment. These are her stories.

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I love to read, but I guess that goes without saying. Mysteries and contemporary fiction are my favorite categories. I walk 7 miles / day and enjoy yoga a few times a week, as well. I also love to cook and in some small way wish I had gone to culinary school. (Then again, if I'm being honest, as fun as the preparation can be, it's far more fun to eat.)
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Surfing. Whatever is interesting to me at that moment, I'll explore.

Gish, 35, is in trouble. No job, no company, no boyfriend, an NYC mortgage - and no prospects. In this edition of The Gish Chronicles, Gish faces drive-by interviews, retail rejection and the life story of a washed-up technophobe recruiter.
Gish Heart is in trouble. At 35, her small public relations firm has dwindled to nothing. In Volume One - Smarmy Glamazons and the People Who Love Them - Gish interviews at an agency where night club attire seems to be required.
