At 70-years-old, a valley woman has written her first novel and it has landed on Amazon's best seller list. The book is called "The Secondary Target" and it has some pretty steamy love scenes that might raise a few eyebrows and cause a few to blush.
Diane Lynn is the author of the book which is a romantic mystery about a young attorney recovering from a brutal attack. Diane says unlike 50 Shades of Grey, her novel offers a suspenseful plot, punctuated sex scenes that she says are sensual and tasteful.
"Let's face it everybody that's normal and has a healthy relationship enjoys having sex with the one that they love, and so I wanted to write about that because I felt it was very important," said Diane Lynn.
Diane admits that personal experience accounts for some of the steamy scenes, and all of the medical ones. Diane spent years as an ER and OR nurse before ever picking up a pen.
Just 2 months after its release, "The Secondary Target" became an Amazon top 100 bestseller. A pleasant surprise for the author who's 47 years of marriage are proof she knows what she's writing about.
"I don't think it matters if you're 50, or you're 80, if 2 people love each other and have a wonderful happy healthy marriage they should enjoy a big part of that marriage, they should enjoy their sex life as well," said Lynn.
Diane says it's not just women who are into her book she says a lot of men like her work, too! In fact, she's almost done with the sequel to this book, and plans to release it in the new year.
