In the 1950’s, on the football field, the dance floor or the back seat of the family Buick, all was fair in love and war. As a freshman in high school, Fran wandered onto the playing field looking for love in all the wrong faces.
Fran’s first book, Crocodile Tears and Lipstick Smears, is “…funny, coy and moving… a complex cast of family, friends and (enemies). If that’s not enough, Gabino brings a secret weapon – a genuine gift for language. She writes with wit, verve and style,” says Kyle Eller of Duluth Budgeteer News.
