Diane Barnes is the author of More Than (October 29 2019 ), Waiting for Ethan (2015), and Mixed Signals (2016). She is also a marketing and corporate communication writer in the health care industry. When she’s not writing, she’s at the gym, running or playing tennis, trying to burn off the ridiculous amounts of chocolate and ice cream she eats. She and her husband Steven live in Massachusetts and dream of moving to Turks and Caicos – at least for the winter months. She hopes you enjoy reading her books as much as she enjoyed writing them.

Waiting for Publication of My Debut Novel

My debut novel Waiting for Ethan is coming out in just about four weeks! Friends and family keep asking me if I’m excited. The truth is I’m excited and a little nervous. I participated in many workshops while I wrote my novel and received a lot of feedback. I learned not everyone likes my main character Gina. I understand that.
