Romance author Jessica Blair is really elderly grandfather Bill Spence

Bills and boon! 'Female' romance author Jessica Blair unmasked as 89-year-old grandfather

Bill, 89, has so far written 22 romance novels under the female pen name since his first was published in 1993, with his latest, Silence of the Snow, due out this week.
