The Prairie Bridesmaid


Just cresting her thirties, Anna Lasko is a frustrated high school teacher whose almost ex-boyfriend, Adam, is away on temporary assignment in Europe. She finds herself tricked into a break-up-with-the-bad-boyfriend intervention by her supportive but meddling girlfriends. To cope with it all, Anna starts smoking again, keeps nightly counsel with her backyard squirrel, Buddy, and starts sessions with a caring but fashion-challenged therapist. Her well-intentioned family adds to the emotional workload when her beautiful and free-spirited sister decides to move to the Middle East with her boyfriend. Luckily, Anna has her devoted grandmother who constantly says it like it is, refuses to conform to anyone’s requests, and continues to live on her prairie farm half-blind, happy, and alone.

Spectacularly fun and rich with wit and savvy, The Prairie Bridesmaid is a delicious debut novel about the bonds that break and make family, friendship, and love.


Film Development

Every writer’s dream come true is that a film company contacts her and says they want to make her book into a movie. Boom! Dream come true. Eagle Vision producer of such films as Academy Award nominated Capote, Reasonable Doubt and We Were Children has optioned the rights to The Prairie Bridesmaid and the film is in development. Daria and her fabulous screenwriting partner, Rebecca Gibson, have adapted the novel into a film script.
