About the Author
Diane was born on “The Jersey Shore” and spent much of her youth on the beach, but for the past 20+ years has lived in the Kansas City area. She currently resides south of Kansas City with her husband, horses, dogs, and cats. She has two grown children and five grandchildren. She’s always loved the old west and the history of the Civil War. Her favorite movie is DANCES WITH WOLVES, an inspiration for the first book in her trilogy. Having parents from both the north and south, and a cousin whose parents were reversed, they grew up calling each other “Yebels,” imagining themselves 150 years ago and the possibility that their families could have fought on different sides of the war. As a kid, Diane played Cowboys and Indians more than she did Barbie, and it shows in what she writes--stories of the struggles of common people and what made this country great. As a senior in high school, she had the option of taking study hall or World History. She took World History—a class she’ll remember all her life. When Diane’s not working on her books, either writing or marketing, she spends time with her family, or is curled up reading a good book or is in front of the television enjoying old movies (but most especially old westerns). Diane currently works full time as a Legal Administrative Assistant at a law firm on the Plaza in Kansas City (while working to get her writing career kick-started).
