Known as a Bookworm in my early childhood and early teens I could be found tucked away with my head in a book. I had a love of reading, any story, as long as it was a happy everafter ending. I loved being taken away to a fairyland place, places of adventure, any place, as long as it was miles from my normal life. Coming from a broken family I treasured and craved these moments.
It was only five years ago late one night that I picked up a pen and wrote what has become a manuscript for my first novel. I had been reading an interview given back in 1968 for a magazine by one of the worlds most iconic screen/theater actresses, regarding her quest that her daughters happiness be paramount during and after her divorce. Such love moved me.
Now some years later I am still inspired. My name is Diane, a love of travel and writing, my head is full of stories waiting to be told. So why don’t you join me on this wonderful adventure, with a dream to be published. It is not an easy world, but it is an exciting one. We will have some exciting times through these pages, so take a seat, buckle up, it’s going to be an amazing ride.
