Alisa Valdes-Rodriguez is the author of the novel, The Dirty Girls Social Club (St. Martens Griffin), the story of six successful Latina women who meet for mojitos.
After the books release, she says she was bombarded with e-mails from professional women asking how they can meet others like themselves to sit down and have some drinks and serious girl talk.
So, Valdes-Rodriguez has decided to put together a sucias gather - Spanish for dirty girl - at a resort near Albuquerque, New Mexico, on Memorial Day weekend.
She believes the perfect sucia role model other than herself is actress Eva Mendez because she is smart, cynical and very much an American woman with a contemporary outlook.
But not everyone is invited. Valdes-Rodriguez says really sexist men need not visit because theyd get their ass SO kicked.
