Put the Damn Phone tackles where we're at in 2018 with technology, communication, self-image, sexism, social media, and the increasingly rapid change we've experienced alongside growing technology. This book attempts to challenge people to take a step back, remove themselves from their devices, and utilize the innate communication skills that came before the digital age.
About The Author
Alyssa Lynn Malmquist was born in Worcester, Massachusetts. Early on she acquired the label of bold. She always considered herself a creative, expressing herself through theater, fashion, web design, social media and, eventually her most powerful form of expression, writing. After graduating college with a Bachelor of Science in Business Marketing, Alyssa moved to South Boston as she was pushed into corporate life for the next three years. She didn't adapt well. She loved her city life outside of work but still felt she wasn’t reaching her fullest potential. Alyssa craved so much more. So, at the age of 25, she quit her job in digital marketing and decided to drive cross country to pursue writing and acting in Los Angeles. She left behind the greatest friends, the most supportive family, and all she had ever known in Massachusetts, in hopes of finding more. One year in Los Angeles pushed Alyssa to work on many projects, including the completion of her first book, Put the Damn Phone Down.
