Pow! Sometimes, don’t you just want to let someone have it? Give them a tongue-lashing they’ll never forget? Alexa’s a Spy and Other Things to Be Ticked off About is part comical call to arms and part tongue-in-cheek tirade--humorous essays about some of the things we have to put up with just because we live in the modern world: intrusive technology, spammers and scammers, materialism and clutter, uncivil political discourse. Too much stuff, too much noise, too much technology. Not enough patience, not enough kindness, not enough…chocolate?

Her work has been included in many anthologies including My Funny Valentine, My Funny Major Medical, Bedpan Banter, Your Glasses are on Top of Your Head, Columnists: While We’re Still Around and three Black Hills Literary Journals. She lives in the Black Hills of South Dakota, 20 miles from Mount Rushmore, something she’s very proud of though she’s not on it. Yet.
