 Grey has gone global.

The scribblings from the single mum have been a huge hit online and now a career as an author is on the cards.

Leesa, 34, from North Belfast, set up a 50 Shades Of Red, White And Blue Facebook page and began posting hilarious tales of her characters Maggie and Sally-Ann.

It has quickly opened an exciting new chapter in her life, with 15,000 Facebook fans, plus publishers and agents keen to sign her up.

The mother of two, who previously worked in car sales and as a bank manager, is studying English Literature English literature, literature written in English since c.1450 by the inhabitants of the British Isles; it was during the 15th cent. that the English language acquired much of its modern form.  at the Open University. She told the Daily Mirror she can't believe how quickly people responded to her posts and admits she hasn't read any of the smash hit E.L. James books from cover to cover.

Leesa said: "I didn't like the first book. I thought it was rubbish and I think E.L. James has even said herself the writing is not that good. I think it was all the hype.

"I wrote the first spoof chapter on Facebook on Friday for my friends and it has just gone crazy.

"It's written with a Belfast accent. I think there is a wee bit of a Milly in all of us and I'm not looking down at anyone. It's a laugh."

There are now 10 chapters on Facebook with fans as far afield as Australia and Canada giving it the thumbs-up.

Leesa is going to add extra information about what Maggie and Sally-Ann get up to over the Twelfth.

This will be posted on Amazon as an e-book and on Monday, Leesa has a meeting with Blackstaff publishers about a novel she is writing called Three Blind Dates.

She revealed: "I had sent work to agents before but hadn't heard back, so it's weird I am doing things the opposite way."

Leesa's parents Sandra and Gordon are on holiday and because they don't use the internet, haven't quite realised what their daughter is on about.

Leesa said: "They are telling me about the sunshine in Turkey. I think they will have a heart attack when they realise what is going on, but I am going to beg my dad not to read it.
