Dana's sister wants to reveal their family secrets
In the office of her recording company in Iowa, Susan Stein is busy putting the final touches to a tell-all book about her life in the music business.
Susan's name may not mean much to people in Ireland but what she has to say will lay bare the family secrets of one of Ireland's most famous singers -- her sister, the Eurovision winner, politician and family-values campaigner Dana Rosemary Scallon. Her book will involve the disclosure of decades' worth of private letters and diaries, lifting the lid on bitter legal disputes, squabbles over money and allegations of child molestation.
Its contents are likely to reverberate both here and in the United States, where 60-year-old Dana has a dedicated cable TV following on the conservative Catholic Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN). It is probably the last thing Dana wants at the moment as she struggles to recover from an emotionally and financially bruising presidential election race, where she finished second-last out of seven candidates.
