A Calgary author who wrote a memoir about her sex life after divorce will be sharing her story on the big screen next year.
Delaine Moore's book, The Secret Sex Life of a Single Mom – which the single mom of three wrote after leaving behind a husband who cheated on her – will be adapted into a movie.
The 43-year-old's journey post-divorce led her to a Calgary sex club and other endeavours exploring her sexuality, The Calgary Sun reports.
“It was like leading a double life,” Moore told The Sun, of being a good mother and an active member of the community, while also exploring dating and sexuality in her personal time.
The fact her book is being turned into a film has left her overwhelmed, she wrote on The Huffington Post.
"I never imagined my road would eventually lead to this," said Moore in a blog post for HuffPost.
"A movie..." she said, "Little' ol me -- just a former stay-at-home mom of three kids, whose entire world, six years ago, was so pulverized, she didn't even want to get out of bed, let alone forge a new career or identity for herself."
Her memoir has been compared to the popular book Fifty Shades of Grey but Moore insists her book is about empowerment, not sex.
"The book is about a woman finding her feet again after life has totally knocked her down," she told the Calgary Herald.
When going through "the absolute hell of divorce and infidelity," Moore says she never imagined things would get this much better.
Now a Mars Venus Divorce & Relationships Coach, speaker and founder of Iamdivorcednotdead.com, Moore writes about relationships, monogamy and affairs.
The book will be turned into a movie for Lifetime, stars Ashley Jones and has begun filming in Ottawa.
