Rose A. Valenta or as one of her WWII serving Uncles used to call her "Rosie the Riveter" has always had a sense of humor that people enjoyed. In some ways it might go back to her cake baking attempts shared with her Grandma in Orlean, where Rose’s attempts at cupcakes turned out more like hockey pucks. This humor spread through the days of pre blogging and Facebook, when the only thing to break up the normal humdrum work day, were the humor that was spread via office mail.
Rose moved from that to share her humorous stories/essays on her fantastic blog “Rosie’s Renegade Humor Blog” where you can find many of the characters and essays that appear in her humor-filled book, “Sitting on Cold Porcelain”.
Rose A. Valenta is a nationally syndicated humor columnist. Her irreverent columns have been published in Associated Content, Courier Post Online, NPR, Newsday, USA TODAY, the WSJ Online, and many other local news and radio websites. She also authors Rosie's Renegade Humor Blog. "This is the blog for people who would be knowledgeable about current events and politics if only politicians and news anchors didn't slant the truth. So, what else is there to do, but share an honest laugh?" Rose regularly attends the Erma Bombeck Writers' Workshop at the University of Dayton, is a member of the Robert Benchley Society and the National Society of Newspaper Columnists.
Sitting on Cold Porcelain:
This is a book filled with coming up to two hundred essays that will add that spark of laughter to your day, it is a book that all will enjoy no matter what age, there is something for everybody with such titles as “Giuliani's Gaffe Could Qualify for Political Darwin Award, Rush Limbaugh: The Don Rickles of Radio, State of The Union 2010: Bitch-Slapping Congress, Islamic Cleric Declares Jihad on Mickey Mouse, Little Egypt to Run Against Sarah Palin”.
The book is like a patchwork of American life and times, humor that makes you stop and think… “You know, I thought that at the time as well.”
Already being hugely popular in the instant download form, it is the sort of book that you can read during a morning coffee break; however beware as the many stories will have you laughing out loud.
With a second book already being planned I’m sure we’ll hear more Rose A. Valenta.
