Gina Ramsey, a humor writer from Superior, has a book out Tuesday called “Burnt Gloveboxes: Embracing Life When It Goes Up in Flames.”

It chronicles some of the “misadventures” of Ramsey’s life, with a message about enjoying the “normal” moments and finding the funny in every circumstance.

“I basically have been a victim of circumstance my whole life, of Murphy’s Law,” Ramsey said. “So if it’s going to happen, it will happen to me or my family or some of my friends.”

The title “Burnt Gloveboxes” comes from a story she chronicles in the book. For years, she’d thought about and been encouraged to write a book.

“Our world needs more humor, and I really feel like this is a great book for people who just want to get a little giggle or laugh,” she said. “They’re short stories, so it’s an easy read for people who are really busy.”

Another “Burnt Gloveboxes” book will come out in 2024, and Ramsey and her publisher hope to turn it into an anthology in which others submit their own misadventures in different themes like pets or cars.
