Georgia Gorringe and her debut novel, 'No Good-Bye' (Photos courtesy of Georgia Gorringe)
No Good-Bye is a steamy romance set in the seductive world of... talk radio. Clearly, this is a work of fiction. It's also the debut 50 Shades of Grey-inspired novel by "Georgie Marie," whose real name is Georgia Gorringe. She's an 86-year-old retired professional cake decorator from Salt Lake City, Utah.
"This book is steamy," Gorringe tells As It Happens guest host Laura Lynch. "I'm a great-great grandmother and people cannot believe I wrote this... and this is not an autobiography which some people have insinuated."
In No Good-Bye, the protagonist Gloria becomes enamored with the voice of a talk radio host.
And the effect that the sultry host with a voice "smooth as butter and sweeter than honey" has on Gloria?
"[He] made her legs quiver," she tells us. "Almost orgasmic."
As for the meaning of the title of the book, Gorringe isn't very loose-lipped.
"I can't tell you that. You'll have to see at the end of the book. It's a tearjerker."
Here's a look at part of the back cover from No Good-Bye:
