As a child born and raised on one of the last of the great old ranches in Southern Alberta, Canada, Diane discovered at an early age that storytelling was the most creative way of sidestepping work and/or punishment. As well as the only entertainment in a world of one 'iffy' TV channel. Self-professed wrestler of all things furry, she refutes the tenacious rumour that she is actually quite terrified of chickens. Educated in Journalism, Diane is the published author of numerous plays, songs, short stories and articles as well as several novels beginning with Carving Angels in 2011. She and her husband, Grant are the parents of six children, grandparents of eighteen and live in Beaumont, Alberta, Canada with a dog and no chickens.
