At one point in Dianne's life she believed that people grew up and when they did they stopped reading Fantasy. She discovered that life without Fantasy was soon out of kilter. She never planned to be an author, but a chance week at a retreat centre dropped the idea for a story into her head. When not writing fiction, Dianne spends her time writing non-fiction. Dianne seeks to help people discover the treasure of their own true selves so they can embark on their own hero's quest. Dianne lives with her husband Doug, his three cats and her beloved dog Thomas.
Dianne says, "It seems I have always been drawn to dragons. There is the dragon tea pot, with a spout that doesn't really work. There is the dragon necklace. And the only stuffed toy I've ever bought for myself was a dragon. Someone once asked me what kind of animal. There was a look of shock on her face when I said dragon. So it only makes sense that when I write a book there would be dragons in it."
