Diane enjoys helping others, and by filling the pages of her books about homemaking, writing/self-publishing and home-based business she can help many learn from her mistakes (and there were a few over the years). In addition to her books she offers editing services along with a Coaching Program designed to help new writers take the steps to self-publishing.
When it was time for NaNoWriMo 2012, she stepped out of her comfort zone of nonfiction and registered to complete a novel in 30 days. Combining her imagination, history and interests, The Hidden Estate came to be - her first work of fiction. It has also sparked the creation of a sequel (The Uncovered Dream) which is currently in the works, and will be available in mid 2013.
In addition to being an independent author she also offers one-on-one coaching for new writers. Her book Writeful Advice offers incite and contact information which readers may use to request her input on their work.
Diane lives on an acreage with her family and a small menagerie of animals which include cats, dogs, horses, alpacas and a pot-bellied pig. Her love of animals and crafts have been combined and she is gradually building an alpaca business as well. Her alpacas have even made their way into her novel, The Hidden Estate.
