But he soon discovers the Jovians are the least of his worries.

A dear friend of the author during the last ten years of her life, she died in 1992, but not before asking John Flynn to write her story. In addition to being an actress groomed to be the next Marilyn Monroe, a Las Vegas showgirl, and a femme fatales on Star Trek, Angelique was also mother to Elvis Aaron Presley Junior, the King‘s son; she had a brief affair with Elvis Presley in 1961 when she was just 18 years-old, and got pregnant. While she gave the child up for adoption, she later appeared in United States Federal Court to watch Elvis Junior claim his rightful name, having proven through DNA evidence that Angelique was his mother and Elvis was his father. She also kept a sex diary; slept with many Hollywood actors like Warren Beatty, Jack Nicholson, Ryan O‘Neal, etc., and starred in many movies and television shows. She was married four times, overcame drug and sexual addiction, and re-ignited her career in the 1980s. She and Flynn met in 1982, keeping in touch by phone and in person until her death. Great reading for anyone who loves movies and the people in movies, as well as all Elvis fans.

Radio Interview

For Immediate Press Release 8-27-2014

 

Press Release, Dateline: August 27, 2014. John L. Flynn was interviewed about his new bookIntimate Bondage (2014) by radio host Rosanna Tufts for Blog Talk Radio in 2014; click here to listen to John's interview on "The Tufts Get Going" Radio Show on Perfect World Network Radio. "Intimate Bondage" is about a female police detective tracking down a serial killer. In the new erotic thriller written by Dr. John Flynn, the routine police work turns out to be kinkier than Kate Dawson ever imagined. The new novel is a cross between Noir and Erotica, as a female detective gets caught up in San Francisco's fetish world, with well-meaning (but not always welcome) help from a wanna-be techno-geek, and a college professor who takes his Dashiell Hammett a little too seriously. If the author's name sounds a little familiar to 50 Shades of Gray fans -- yes, the character of Dr. John Flynn, Christian Gray's therapist in books two and three, really is based on real-life psychologist and author, Dr. John L. Flynn.
