Kelly Povo, photographer and artist, creator of Kelly Cards and other inspiring products for women has once again teamed up with Phyllis Root, an award-winning writer with a pointed and gentle sense of humor, to create Hot Flash Gal! The women of a certain age in Kelly's hand-colored set-up shots are riding Harleys, shoveling snow in their swimsuits, and having a blast together as they negotiate the pitfalls, pratfalls, and benefits of menopause.

It's increasingly apparent to millions of women that "that time of life" is their time of life to shine. Any woman who's a bit slow on the uptake? i.e. she hasn't figured out the benefits of menopause-is sure to be won over by this lighthearted look.

Do you need more than a little help from your friends? Is your girlish figure harder to find? Have your heating bills plummeted? Congratulations! You're a genuine HOT FLASH GAL!?

Hot Flash Gal may not leap buildings with a single bound, but she does appreciate the everyday stuff--family, friends, and doing what you want.
