This Tuesday another wonderful evening of adult sex-ed Q&A, along with readings from the Salon’s community of attendees.
I encourage writer’s at the Salon to challenge the norm. Gudrun Frerichs does just that when she writes her steamy stories. Below you will find information on her recently published books and her bio.
A Tuscan Affair
Auckland lawyer Anna King is well established and well respected. She has her career, her beautiful home, and her twins. She never expected to fall in love again.
Italian vineyard owner Antonio Falcone bursts back into her life when he travels halfway across the world to New Zealand to help his elderly father arrange a divorce. He doesn’t believe in love.
Is this a second chance to rekindle what might have been? Can they give up the life they know for a new future together, or will old enemies keep them apart forever?
Find out in this romantic suspense that takes you to Auckland, New Zealand and into the heart of Tuscany, Italy.
A TUSCAN AFFAIR, the first of four books in the GOLDEN GIRLS Series. Four long-time friends are faced with life changing decisions. As so often happens, life throws some serious obstacles their way but being strong Kiwi women, they don’t cower in fear. Instead, they meet those challenges head-on.
With the help of each other, they answer the age-old question: Do we quietly sit back and grow old or is there still one more adventure waiting for us? One more love?
Each one of the four friends has a book to her name. A TUSCAN AFFAIR is Anna’s story.

Gudrun’s Bio 2017
Gudrun Frerichs is a retired psychotherapist and full-time writer. She is passionate about challenging stereotypes and the invisibility of older women, giving them a voice in romantic novels and showing the rich life they lead. Of German origin, she lives with her family in New Zealand, her home for the last 30 years.
I’ve always been a storyteller and passionate reader. Though in the last few years, I struggled to relate to romantic fiction. I swear I’m not going to touch another romance featuring a hero and heroine in their twenties or early thirties. I want to read stories about people I can relate to. Life doesn’t end at thirty-five, people! The fact is, women and men who are past fifty, sixty, and yes, even seventy have not stopped loving, longing, dreaming of adventure, and–dare I say it–having sex.
So this is the group of people I am writing about in our cottage in windy Wellington, with Steffie the rescue dog at my feet. Don’t they say you should write about what you know? Here they come, my heroes and heroines, the gray foxes, like George Clooney, Judy Dench, and Jane Fonda. I could go on and on, but you’ll get the picture.
If I’m not sitting curled up in a cosy corner reading books from fellow authors, I’m writing. Armed with a box of chocolates, a laptop, a cup of Earl Grey or the occasional glass of Merlot, I’m having fun letting the characters in my books overcome (dangerous) obstacles I create for them to find their Happy Ever After. And finding it, they will. After all, it’s romance!
I started reviewing romantic fiction feturing older heroines and heroes
on my revived blog: 65 and counting.
