Utah woman writes first novel at 86

A Utah woman is living proof that people are never too old to realize their dreams.
A Utah woman is living proof that people are never too old to realize their dreams.

Georgia Gorringe, 86, just had her first book published. It's called "No Goodbye" and it took Gorringe five years to write.

But it isn't what you'd expect from a great-great-grandmother. It's not a sweet, innocent story but a very steamy romance novel.

"It's about a bored housewife and she listens to talk radio. And that voice on the radio, oh, he had a magic voice. And it just turned her on," Gorringe said.

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

Gorringe's daughter might be a bit embarrassed, but she's proud that her mom realized her dream.

The book "No Goodbye" is available only on Amazon.com, and it's written under the pen name Georgie Marie.
