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). Diane would love to hear from you with comments. If you’d like to contact her, please do so via email at:

More About the Author

Although born in New Jersey of parents from New Jersey and Tennessee, it was just a matter of time before Diane's "southern" blood revealed itself. And reveal itself it did, in a passion for all things western and related to the Civil War. Having learned a great deal in her research since her historical journey began, especially in the midwest, Diane has attempted to portray both the west and the war from numerous points-of-view, which is not always the same history as what has been previously portrayed--or taught.

As a kid, Diane played Cowboys and Indians more than she did Barbie, and as she got older, she and her cousin (whose parents were reversed) gave themselves the moniker of "Yebels." The question of what it would have been like during the Civil War years, when friends and family fought on opposite sides of the war, festered inside Diane until she answered her own question in the form of the novels she writes of the west and Civil War, where everyday people, regardless of what "side" they were on, when faced with difficult situations, rose to the challenge, and survived.

Now living south of Kansas City, Missouri, on fourteen acres of property, when Diane's not writing or marketing, she enjoys sitting on her front porch, reading when she can or just watching her four horses in the pasture and multitude of cats in the yard. When she does venture into town, it's to work at a lawfirm on the Plaza, or visit her two children and five grandchildren.
