Amy Gettinger has 2 grown sons, 2 tyrannical mini-poodles, and a long-suffering husband. She’s pretty good at teaching ESL to adults, and writes jazz chants and poems focusing on pertinent grammar points. Currently, she is writing and producing Reader’s Theater plays in a local assisted living with nonagenarians as the readers. She loves to decorate with sunflowers and watch British TV shows and swim like a mermaid. She also loves the sound of children in the pool next door and the cacophony of crows, parrots, owls, and hummingbirds in and around her garden. She loves playing board games and eating chocolate. Let’s not forget the chocolate. She writes and laughs at Facebook in the shade of some very noisy hundred-year-old eucalyptus trees in Orange County, CA. She has written 2 novels, and has published both Roll with the Punches and Alice in Monologue Land on Amazon for Kindle, as well as a collection of short stories set in the world of Alice in Monologue Land called Kiss My Sweet Skull.
