Known as a bookworm I could be found tucked away with my head in a book. With a love of reading, any story, as long as it was a happy ever-after ending. I loved being taken to magical places of adventure, any place, as long as it was miles from my normal life, which did use to consist of some unhappy times.
Some years later I was inspired to try writing my thoughts down on paper and eventually led me to be a writer for children. 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. We will have some exciting times through these pages, so take a seat, buckle up, it’s going to be an amazing ride.
