Author Stacey Quinn marks her debut in the world of literature with "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend" (published by Xlibris UK). A captivating tale following the struggles of a woman who fell in love with a married man, it explores ‘the other woman's side' in familiar, yet often veiled sphere of extramarital affairs.

Gypsy is a 20-something woman working behind the scenes of the TV industry. She is struggling with the pressure of having an affair with her boss, Ivan. She wants him to end things with his wife, Tamara. Her sister, Jade, and her boyfriend are in a band. Suddenly Gypsy gets the unexpected opportunity to help Jade out in starting her career. But things start to get tricky when she meets Leonardo. What role will Leonardo play in this fiery game of dark secrets? Can Gypsy be happy with either man?

Candid, fast-paced and filled with unconventional twists, "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend" turns the familiar love triangle drama on its axis to reveal the very real struggles of a woman's love, emotionally torn by the constraints of hidden relationships. How does she cope with feelings of guilt, hurt or caution? It shows that every person involved in a situation could each have a different take on the story.

"Usually, stories like this focus on the wife, how devastated she is and will she get over the betrayal if she finds out in the first place," says Quinn. "Here, I want the readers to see the situation from Gypsy's point of view and how 'the other woman' can be clichéd from times gone by."
