No Vacancy
By Lisa M. Giannone

Series Description:

No Vacancy is a collection of humorous personal essays. Each essay is independent of each other, but together the collection weaves an autobiographical tapestry, at times sad, bizarre, and deeply personal. No skeleton in her closet is safe.

Lisa tackles subjects including grand conspiracies, generation gaps, memory loss, aging, nostalgia, modern technology, Corporate America, airline industry, affairs, addiction, unorthodox relationships, male species, and female anatomy, to name just a few.

Author Bio For Lisa M. Giannone:

I'm a technical writer in the Finance IT field by day, and a writer and poet by night. With a background in Psychology and Statistics, I've been working in the IT industry since 1994, previously as a system developer, business systems analyst, and process reengineer.

I'm the author of two other popular series on Channillo: No Vacancy, a collection of humorous personal essays, and A Touch of Noir, a collection of short stories written in “noir” style. I'm currently scribing another poetry series, Bits and Pieces, on Wattpad. My poems, all ripped out of my personal life, are also featured on Scriggler, Spillwords, and Niume. Three of my poems were published in the anthology Poets Across Borders, available at amazon.co.uk. I'm also collaborating on a collection of poetry and short stories scheduled for spring 2017 release. All of Me is a collection of new poems unavailable anywhere else.

In my spare time, I'm an active golfer in the NCGA, an avid New York Yankee and San Francisco Giants baseball fan, and a Film Noir and classic (1940’s-1960’s) film buff.
