Merrill Markoe is a writer and sometimes performer of hopefully humorous material. Information about all 8 of her books plus a long chatty bio full of other resume credits and a page full of videos can be found at her exciting website, creatively titled Merrillmarkoe.com (And by the way, when I say "her" I mean me. As far as I can tell, there's no one else here. ) She has a new book of essays titled "Cool, Calm and Contentious", due in Nov.2011. And oddly enough, so do I!
