    A Writer's Life: A Setting Surprise

    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.
    When I looked back at a community on the Eastern Shore of Virginia I visited a few times in early 2000, I came upon a startling, sweet surprise! I dug deeper! It was clear: I had to write this novel! 
    I joined J. Thorn's 5-day challenge using his "Three Story Method", outlined the entire story, and uploaded the details in Plottr. I can access it at any time and get cracking!
    I'll do exactly that as soon as "Claim Denied" is published. Publication release is January 2021. Story and Song Neighborhood Bookstore on Amelia Island, FL has agreed to a book launch.  Please email me at Diann@DiannAbroad.com to receive publication information and an invitation to the book launch.

    Travel Bug, Marketa and Milly

    Travel Bug, Marketa and Milly

    Diann Schindler, DiannAbroad, takes us back to her 3rd grade geography class in Hamilton, Ohio, when her first thought of travelling outside the United States burst forth, infiltrating her head and her heart. She was nine years old. But, it wasn't until decades later that she truly acted on that notion, with full conviction, and came to understand that travelling is all about the people...meeting people from all walks of life and lands. Making connections is the true essence of broadening horizons, tolerance, understanding, and love.
    Diann tells us about two women she met: Marketa in Prague and Milly in Fez, Morocco. They helped her understand women are women, are women, all over the world, often with the same painful experiences.

    “Wives Who Kill” - Sophie and Hannah: Two women with different backgrounds, different circumstances, and different mindsets. Yet, both are wanted for murder. What made them do it? Court-appointed forensic psychologist Dr. Rosie Klein untangles the web of circumstances surrounding each violent crime . . . and much more!
    At the recommendation of the judges and attorneys who appoint her to the cases, Dr. Klein first evaluates Sophie's case, then Hannah's state of mind at the time the women committed their separate crimes. Her search for mitigating factors, and her recommendations, will assist the Court during the sentencing phase of each woman's trial. Or should their charges of murder be commuted . . .based on what Dr. Rosie finds?
    You be the judge after you read the reasons behind Wives Who Kill.
