…If a kickass middle-aged bookkeeper got sucked into a spy’s life…
After four uneventful months spent guarding her boss’s eccentric hippie parents on an isolated raincoast commune, bookkeeper-turned-secret-agent Aydan Kelly is beginning to hope mildewed undies will be the only hazard she’ll face.
But some of the blissed-out flower children are not what they seem. Aydan discovers a plot to kill her lovable charges, and in her fight to protect them she unearths the commune’s deepest secret. Suddenly she’s facing dozens of enemies who threaten the lives of all the innocent commune members as well as her own.
She’ll only survive with a little help from her friends…

Contains coarse language, moderate violence, and sexuality. The story can stand alone but will be more enjoyable if the series is read in order.
“Fierce and fantastic – a totally different type of heroine who keeps you clinging to the edge of your seat!”
“If Janet Evanovich’s quirky humour met Robert Ludlum’s taut thrillers, the Never Say Spy series would be their love child: racy, fun, and action-packed!”

About the Author
Before I started writing fiction, I had a checkered career: technical writer, computer geek, and interior designer. I’m good at two out of three of those. Fortunately, I had the sense to quit the one I sucked at (interior design).
When my mid-life crisis hit, I took up muay thai and started writing thrillers featuring a middle-aged female protagonist. (‘Walter Mitty’, you say? Nope, never heard of him.)
Writing and kicking the hell out of stuff seemed more productive than more typical mid-life-crisis activities like getting a divorce, buying a Harley Crossbones, and cruising across the country picking up men in sleazy bars; especially since it’s winter most months of the year here in Canada.
It’s much more comfortable to sit at my computer. And Harleys are expensive. Come to think of it, so are beer and gasoline.
Oh, and I still love my husband. There’s that. So I stuck with the writing.
(And, for the record, no, I’m not actually my protagonist, Aydan Kelly.)

Here’s my “professional” bio, in case you need something more suitable for mixed company:
Diane Henders is the Kindle bestselling author of the NEVER SAY SPY series: Sexy techno-thrillers packed with tension, laughs, profanity, and sometimes warm fuzzies. The first book in the series, NEVER SAY SPY, has had over 450,000 downloads to date, and stayed on Kindle’s ‘Women Sleuths’ Top 100 list for 60 consecutive months.
Diane enjoys target shooting, gardening, auto mechanics, painting (art, not walls), music, and martial arts; and loves food and drink almost as much as she loves her husband. They live in the wilds of British Columbia, Canada, where they get all the adrenaline rush they could ever want by growing fruit trees in bear country.
