A Writer's Life: A Setting Surprise
With my current thriller manuscript ("Claim Denied") in the hands of beta readers, I had time to think about writing another book: a sequel, a thriller set in a small town with fascinating, quirky characters.

Inspiring and moving!
I had the immense pleasure of spending a few days with Diann a few years ago and experiencing her vitality, curiosity, warmth, and humor. I am thrilled to be able to listen to her and follow her on her continual path of discovery. What a huge pleasure, thank-you!!
