CBC Producer Becomes the New Queen of Erotica


Move over Fifty Shades, there's a hot new novel hitting bedside tables.

S.E.C.R.E.T., the Canadian written erotic novel, tells the story of the young widow Cassie Robichaud living a life of regret and loneliness until she joins a secret society that helps women realise their sexual fantasies. On shelves in early February, it has become an instant bestseller and while the title of the book may intrigue readers to pick up the steamy story, the identity of the author has become somewhat of hotter topic. Originally penned under the pseudonym L. Marie Adeline, the women behind S.E.C.R.E.T. has been revealed and this new queen of erotica just so happens to be a former CBCer.

Lisa Gabriele, the long time senior producer of Dragons' Den, The Current and other CBC shows, came forward after no longer being able to disguise her identity (she was outed by Kevin O'Leary). Embracing the success her novel has so greatly received, Lisa appeared on her former show, The Current, to talk about S.E.C.R.E.T.. Listen:
