No Sex Please, I’m Menopausal

Stevie Turner-No Sex Please

Baby Boomer Relationships & Menopause
A New Novel Dramatizes the “The Change of Life”


(US & UK, August 2014) As the number of baby boomers turning 50 and older continue to create a dramatic shift in the population landscape, the issues of this dominating demographic are taking center stage. The AARP estimates that by next year approx. 45% of the U.S. population will be 50 and over. For this age group there are two major quality of life concerns. One is retirement preparation and the other is the effect of menopause on baby boomer relationships.

As with any major “quality of life” challenge, humor has a way of softening the impact. And British author, Stevie Turner has managed to capture the humor in menopause and “the Change of Life.”

In her 5th novel, “No Sex Please, I’m Menopausal,” Turner thrusts us head first into the complicated and evolving relationship of Lyn and Neil. As Lyn experiences “the change” and suffers a diminished desire for sex, Neil chooses to abandon the relationship that is no longer serving “his needs.” Turner craftily orchestrates the unfolding drama, in a poignant style that brings humor and compassion to an experience likely shared by a burgeoning segment of society.

Stevie Turner was born and raised in London, England. She began writing while still at primary school, but now that her children have flown the nest she is able to devote more time to writing women’s fiction. She writes about the darker side of relationships that tend to be glossed over. However, she always sprinkles in her special brand of humor as well to sweeten the pill. She is currently working on her sixth novel.
