A low-brow look at high-minded living, a good-natured (mostly) rant about some of the challenges we face and some of the annoyances we deal with just because we’re alive and trying to thrive at this moment in history. Part comedic call to arms and part tongue-in-cheek tirade, Alexa’s a Spy goes after spammers and scammers, clutter and litter, intrusive technology and uncivil discourse. Too much stuff, too much noise, too much to worry about.
Dorothy Rosby is the author of three books of humorous essays: Alexa’s a Spy and Other Things to Be Ticked off About, Humorous Essays on the Hassles of Our Time; I Used to Think I Was Not That Bad and Then I Got to Know Me Better and I Didn’t Know You Could Make Birthday Cake from Scratch, Parenting Blunders from Cradle to Empty Nest. She’s currently working on her fourth book and hoping to give it a shorter title—something like It’s Finally Done or Best Seller.
Dorothy is also a syndicated humor columnist whose column appears across the West and Midwest. Her writing has won honors from the South Dakota Newspaper Association and the National Federation of Press Women.
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.
