Diane Rapp became an entrepreneur when she started her own dog grooming salon in Santa Barbara, California. She spent the next thirty years as a small business owner; she sold real estate, started an office supply/copy center, and performed free-lance advertising design.
During all those years Diane wrote stories as a cure for insomnia. After Diane and her daughter Laura co-authored a travel guidebook, Laura gave Diane the idea of writing a mystery set on cruise ships in the Caribbean. Murder Caribbean-Style and Murder on a Ghost Ship are the first two novels of a High Seas Mystery series.
Howl of the Wolf was the first book in Dianeís science fiction series. It introduced the planet Drako, telepathic wolves, and the crew of the space ship that took sanctuary on a planet that banned technology. In the second book, The Havenshire Resistance, Queen Krystalís teenage daughters learn to use inherited powers. They join an army of samurai women, telepathic wolves, and commoners to save the kingdom from an evil usurper. The third book of the trilogy is Dragon Defense. The planet is under threat by an Institute battleship. King Donovan must train teenagers to operate forbidden defense technology while his daughters make friends with a flock of wild dragons.
