As the youngest in the family, growing up on a farm in Findlay, Ohio, Diane often acted out characters from her own stories in the backyard. In high school she was the student sitting in class with a novel hidden in front of her propped up textbook. She graduated from The Ohio State University. Before starting on her writing career, Diane was a school teacher and play director. A few months out of the year, she scores the tests that students hate to take.
She met her husband while teaching at an orphanage, and they married in 1975. While raising their six children, Diane started writing nonfiction. Later, she decided it would be a nice escape to write fiction.
Diane writes nonfiction, historical fiction, inspirational, contemporary romance, women’s fiction and chick-lit mystery. She writes fun and inspiring stories filled with memorable characters and is a multi-published author. Diane gives thanks to God daily for all her wonderful blessings.
