Diane Burton combines her love of mystery, adventure, science fiction and romance into writing romantic fiction. Besides writing science fiction romance, she writes romantic suspense, and cozy mysteries. As D.M. Burton, Diane writes middle grade adventure fiction.
Diane grew up in the Detroit-area and has lived in Portage (Michigan), Sedalia (Missouri) as well as a brief stint in Chicago-land. She's been a Parks & Recreation supervisor, an inventory clerk for a flute store, and a long-time volunteer for Girl Scouts. She was also a teacher where she taught elementary and middle school. Her last job was for an oil and gas exploration company where she discovered the cure for insomnia—reading oil and gas leases. She met her own hero on a blind date, where it was love at first sight--for her. It took him a little longer. Diane and her husband currently reside in West Michigan, close to their two grown children and five grandchildren.
When she isn't writing, she loves playing with the grandkiddies, reading, and watching movies.
