Alexa Martin--Author of GIRL WONDER


"It's not what you do. It's who you are and how you treat people that really matters." -Alexa

Earlier this month I spent a fun evening with this lovely debut author at an event at Village Books in Bellingham, WA.

It didn't take me long to figure out that Alexa is an outstanding human being with a lot of heart.

I am delighted to be able to share a few of her thoughts with you here.

On Life 

If I could snap my fingers and solve one of the problems here on earth, it would be:
Affordable health care
One question I wish I had a definitive answer to:
Why can't I ever get the auto sinks/hand-dryers to work?

In My Perfect World… 

Everyone would get hugs and compliments at least once a week. There would be an abundance of affordable health care and community spirit. No one would be deprived of love and compassion. Every child would have loving parents and great friends. No one would ever put another person down. Cute clothes from Anthropologie would be free for everyone.

    comment is added I get several emails with the same comment.

    Is there any way you can remove me from that service? Bless you!
