Overview

It's never too late to fall in love... but it can be a challenge!
The humorous mishaps of Giselle McKissack, 45 year old widow struggling to put her daughter through college. When her car breaks down, and she needs money to fix it, she accepts a job bellydancing at the 50th birthday party of widower Brian Haggerty, who used to lock horns frequently with her late husband at church.
When they become romantically involved, they find themselves constantly at the beckon call of their children, grandkids, and aging parents.
This humorous tale poses the question: is there such a thing as being too wrapped up in the lives of your children?

Meet the Author

First published in her teens, Barbara Dan admits to enjoying a variation of life experiences, including working as an actress, model, night club comedienne, comedy writer, puppeteer, theatrical producer in Hollywood, screenwriter, publicist, real estate saleswoman, hands-on-builder of houses, escrow officer, co-teacher of couples communication workshops with her late husband, family counselor John Dan. Other hats she has worn include publisher, editor, adjunct college professor, and—by far her biggest joy and challenge—being mother to four grown children and grandma to five very lively grandchildren and recently to three great-grandchildren. Hobbies: gardening, cooking, oil painting, quilting. She is a voracious reader on many subjects, loves to haunt old graveyards and historic sites. Many of her characters are inspired by family genaeology charts! But the most outrageous ones come straight from her overactive imagination. Her historical western, SILENT ANGEL, won the Colorado Romance Writers' award for Best Historical Novel (1992). She is a member of Western Writers of America and Women Writing the West. Many of her books are available in paperback as well as eBook. Even though she has degrees in Theatre Arts and Advanced Accounting, and an M.A. in Humanities (emphasis: literature) from Cal State University, she insists that real life is far better preparation for writing than academia! (A good sense of humor also helps.)
