After two decades working for a top luxury retailer, Diane Vallere traded fashion accessories for accessories to murder. She started her own detective agency at age ten and has maintained a passion for shoes, clues, and clothes ever since.
Diane's series: The award-winning Samantha Kidd Mystery Series features former fashion buyer turned amateur sleuth Samantha Kidd.
The Madison Night Mysteries feature a modern day interior decorator who specializes in mid-century design (studying Doris Day movies to get the look right).
The Sylvia Stryker Outer Space Mysteries: cozy mysteries that are out of this world!
The national bestselling and Lefty-nominated Material Witness mysteries featuring Polyester Monroe, who was born in the family fabric shop on a bed of--you guessed it--polyester.
Costume Shop Mysteries featuring Margo Tamblyn (and her wacky, conspiracy-loving dad). Diane's most diverse cast to date plus a town of people who celebrate any occasion with a costume party!
In addition to mystery fiction, Diane is working on non-fiction projects meant to inspire and motivate in an entertaining way. Her newsletter, The Weekly DiVa, gives readers a glimpse into her personal life with girl talk, book talk, and life talk. She is a self-described mix of three fictional characters: Trixie Belden, Barbie, and Rocky Balboa.
