Alicia is a published author. Her book Gracefully Gone was launched June 2013 in time for Father’s Day on Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com. Gracefully Gone is a decade-long dialogue between her father Matt, and Alicia as he lay dying from brain cancer while she struggled to grow up within that murky shadow. It is a fusion of two journals; her father’s writings from his 1980 diagnosis until his 1983 remission and Alicia’s journal from 1989-1991 as she cared for him until his passing. There is more writing to come from Alicia, as she is currently working on new material influenced by her other career as a wife and mother to her three daughters. This material is being “showcased” in the form of Standup Comedy. So far so good. She has had a few bookings in LA: Flappers, The Comedy Store and upcoming… Carolines on Broadway in her hometown of New York.
Alicia is from Long Island, New York and holds a Bachelors Degree from NYU in Political Anthropology and Philosophy. She currently lives in California with her husband and their three daughters.
