Bosses show little love to romantic novelist

  • Bosses show little love to romantic novelist

    A woman who used every spare moment to pen her own romantic novel has lost her job after bosses discovered she was writing her saucy tome on company time.

    Tanja Shelton was working as a production control scheduler at industrial equipment manufacturer Sioux Automation.

    However, she soon discovered that she could spice up dull moments during her desk job by working on her romance novel 'Taylorville'.

    According to supervisor Cindy Altena, who raised the alarm after noticing Ms Shelton's constant typing, the work-in-progress appeared to tell the tale of a teenage temptress called Taylor.

    However, the company was less than impressed by Ms Shelton's claims that writing helped to hone her skills during slow periods and the budding author - who has a degree in journalism from Dordt College - was duly dismissed.

    In her defence, she claimed: "I was writing, but it wasn't necessarily a book. I was just typing my thoughts down, trying to keep my brain moving."

    To put a bit of romance into your life, why not search for your perfect date?
