Gia started creating stories long before she could write. And while she was encouraged to be creative, she was also expected to be practical.
So her academic career had one trajectory: law school.
Once she got there, she crashed and burned.
Following various turns as an English professor, translator and copy editor for UNESCO, she went back to her first love.
After a few years of drafting, awkwardly querying, and completely floundering, she was accepted into the 2017 PitchWars class and nothing’s been the same. Her work has won awards and she signed with the Transatlantic Literary Agency in 2018.
She’s more than grateful for the help she’s received. That’s why she’s excited to pay it forward.
