Meet the Author

Alisa Steinberg is a novelist, humorist, and blogger, and back in the day, she was a practicing psychotherapist (and now she frequently thinks she's the insane person in the room). She lives in Manhattan, but doesn't own a pair of Jimmy Choo shoes or hangout at Bungalow 8 like Carrie Bradshaw (although she wouldn't be adverse to either). She's the author of "Text Me, a Tale of Love and Technology," "Rantalicious: True Tirades from a Woman on the Edge," and the Rantalicious’ (monthly) “Thrifty eBook Series,” and has been a writer since the age she first played hopscotch (which wasn't yesterday). Steinberg has been a blogger for skirt.com, has been published at more.com (More magazine's web site), and has had her poetry published in the Literary & Arts Magazine "Children, Churches and Daddies," and "Poet's Haven."

    A Timely Love Story

    Seeking a fresh new start, Penelope McAdams decides to move to the bright lights and wondrous splendor of the Big Apple...there's only one problem: Penelope is small town to the core, a trait that won't serve her well in the consummately wireless New York social scene. So, in an effort to bone up on texting, IMs, MP3s, and all things techy, Penelope solicits the help of Ted Hollis, the ultimate techno geek, with whose help she's able to pursue a relationship with handsome, dreamy entrepreneur Luke Carson; however, over the course of her ongoing tutorials, Penelope begins to develop genuine feelings for Ted, forcing her to decide precisely which potential suitor will truly fulfill the desires of her heart...

    Surprisingly witty, Text Me, A Tale Of Love And Technology is an engaging read. In clever fashion, author Alisa Dana Steinberg has crafted a touching, timely love story set against the backdrop of the Techno Revolution currently engulfing modern society. Many readers are sure to find themselves empathizing with Penelope's low-tech plight, just as much as they're sure to identify with her ongoing struggle to learn what really matters most when it comes to the leanings of the heart. Given the countless conveniences that they provide, it's easy to become swept up in the thrill of embracing BlackBerries, iPhones, iPads, Wii systems, and the like; however, as Penelope ultimately realizes, when it comes to real, lasting love, gizmos can only go so far - forcing us to discover that which will sustain us long after their enticing allure has passed. An equally entertaining and enlightening read.
