Pushing 30
by Whitney Gaskell

Pushing 30, Whitney Gaskell's comic and heartfelt debut novel, infuses humor, warmth, and lots of laughs into the tale of one modern-day woman as she navigates the everyday obstacles of leaving her twenties behind.

Gaskell's heroine is Ellie Winters, the consummate "good girl"--loyal, dependable, mails out her holiday cards right after Thanksgiving, and always takes off her makeup before bed. But now as the 'big 3-0' looms on the horizon, Ellie's beginning to wonder why she played by the rules all these years. She has a boring boyfriend, has a job she loathes, and is the solo standing single in her circle of friends. Feeling like she's lost the instruction manual to her life, Ellie sets off with her trusted and ever present pug, Sally, for a comforting late-night walk, and literally runs into DC's sexiest TV anchorman. Could he be the catalyst to light the spark in Ellie's hum-drum life?

With a smart heroine readers will love to cheer for, Whitney Gaskell proves herself as a delightful new voice with her first novel, Pushing 30.

Stay tuned for comments from our StorkNet readers, to be added here soon.

About the author: Whitney Gaskell grew up in central New York, and is a graduate of Syracuse University and Tulane Law School. She worked for several years as a reluctant lawyer before writing her first novel, Pushing 30, a new release now available from Bantam Dell. She lives in San Antonio, Texas with her husband, attorney George Gaskell, and their son, Samuel Finn. Whitney, George and Sam also share their home with a spoiled pug named Madeline, who was the real life inspiration for Sally from Pushing 30.

Whitney is currently working on her second book, a romantic comedy entitled True Love (and Other Lies).
