Out Of The Grey

By Stephanie M Turner

Romance | Paperback, eBook


For all of her life Derby has just existed. Even as an only child her parents barely noticed her, she believed, because she was a girl and they had wanted a boy. They pressured her into marriage on her sixteenth birthday when she thought she was pregnant, and then never spoke to or saw her again. Her husband’s mother and sister hate her as they insist she deliberately trapped David into marriage, especially when it turns out the pregnancy was a false alarm. Even to the man she’s married to, she is invisible. She has no allies. As the years pass by, Derby concentrates hard on her career as the manager of a nursery and is respected by the staff who work for her, but no one knows her. She doesn’t even know herself. Her life is as it is, or so she presumes. Until she wakes on the morning of her fortieth birthday, which also happens to be her twenty four year wedding anniversary, and finds her first grey hair. In that one moment, she realises that her whole life and marriage is and has been dull, loveless and lifeless, and she must now do something to change it. From then on she embarks on a journey of self-empowerment and discovery, where co-workers become friends, and neighbours watchful defenders. A journey full of moments that will make the reader laugh, cry and fall in love all over again. With a great deal of effort and determination, she emerges from a grey mundane existence into a world of colour. Where lies and secrets intertwine with revenge, drama and a large helping of love and romance, to a dramatic conclusion.

Stephanie M Turner was born in Oxford on February 11th the youngest of three girls. She doesn’t believe the year is important because many people have pre-conceived ideas about age but to her age is just a number. She believes the important thing is how you feel, and she says she always feel like she is still in her late teens or early twenties. She began writing when she was very little. Her parents nurtured her love of books and imagination from an early age, for both writing and reading. A lot of her ideas came from the summer holidays she and her family spent in Weymouth, and the very creative, and sometimes dramatic stories she and her sisters would put their toys through when they played. On entering her teens she discovered books about romance, and at the same time her dad discovered North Devon. Their holidays to this wonderful part of the country inspired her so much that her writing changed. She doesn’t know what happened to all of those literary creations, ‘like many other people we lose things as we get older’ she says, ‘and at the time they really didn't seem that important. But what is important to me, is that they were the beginning and the root of my writing. I learnt a lot from them, and though they no longer exist physically they are in my memories’. Although a qualified teacher, she now lives in a lovely seaside village in Devon with her husband, and concentrates mainly on her writing.
