An 86-year-old Utah woman became a first-time novelist by writing a steamy romance novel about a bored housewife.

Georgia Gorringe said it took her five years to write the tale of a woman who listens to talk radio and is turned on by the voice of a man she hears.

"And that voice on the radio, oh, he had a magic voice! And it just turned her on!" Gorringe said laughing during an interview with KUTV.

Her adult daughter, Bobbie Posey, is proud of her mother's accomplishment but says she was taken aback by the amount of steaminess in the book.



"Sometimes I'm like, 'Mother, how could you do that? How can you write that?' " said Posey. "But she did!"

The 176-page book, titled "No Good-Bye," came out in February and is available on Kindle and Amazon. It isn't available in book stores. Gorringe wrote it under her pen name, Georgie Marie, and released it using a company that helps authors self-publish.

"Sometimes, the sound of a voice is all it takes to dial up a fine romance," reads the tease on Amazon. "But can you really fall in love with someone when you have never been in the same room?"

Gorringe, who is a great-great grandmother, insists the story is all fiction, but her daughter isn't buying it.

"A lot of it is actually real-life," said Posey. "I mean, we know who she's talking about."
