I Was in Love with a Short Man Once by Kimberly J. Dalferes


If you think there is nothing funny about being middle-aged, think again. As a reflection of the evolving tastes and humor of our growing baby boomer generation, I Was In Love With a Short Man Once – the debut book from local author Kimberly “Kimba” Dalferes, has become an Amazon Best Seller. 

“I’m thrilled that my book is finding an audience” said the author. “I hope the readers are enjoying my observations from the middle-aged cheap seats.”

This entertaining essay collection is written from the perspective of a crazy, southern Irish gal. Readers follow her as she reflects on: growing up as a child of limited means in South Florida; managing a self-financed college education; balancing work as a federal official with the joys of single motherhood; and navigating the amusing challenges of being a second-time-around wife. 

The author appears regularly at events in the DC-VA-MD area and as a radio interview guest. For example, this coming Wednesday, April 4th, at 5:30 pm EDT she will be interviewed on the Scorpion Equinox Radio Show http://www.blogtalkradio.com/scorpion-equinox-/2012/04/04/guest-kimberly-dalferes Scorpion Equinox is hosted by long time pals Dawn O’Creene and Jennifer Geronimo. The program features guests who inspire and educate listeners on topics not always mainstream.

Dalferes is hopeful that an upcoming summer book promotion will appeal to an array of readers. “When considering what to pack in your summer beach bag,” she noted, “I hope you’ll toss in I Was In Love With a Short Man Once along with your SPF 50 sunscreen and your favorite cocktail mix.”

About the Author

Kimberly (Kimba) J. Dalferes is a native Floridian, but has spent the past sixteen years pretending to be a Virginian. She is a bit worried that much of her current writing seems to center on public transportation and she has no rational explanation as to why this is true. Her accomplishments have included successfully threading a sewing bobbin, landing a 35 pound Alaskan King salmon, and scoring a blue and white Chinese vase at an estate sale for $1. She recently discovered that there is a very real possibility that she might be related to Princess Margaret Tudor, the sister of King Henry the VIII (on her mama's side). A proud Florida State University graduate, she often sings the Seminole fight song out loud for no reason other than she still knows all the words. She currently lives, works, and writes in Fairfax, Virginia with her husband Greg, dog Taz, and occasionally her son Jimmy, when he is home from college.
