Encouraged by my publisher father, I have been writing all my life. When I was five, he took my first effort to his office and brought it back in a cardboard cover with the label, 'Tom's Party'written by Diney, published by Daddy.
I've never looked back and always have some writing on the go.
To date I have written 10 romantic novels under the name of Diney Delancey (I liked the shape of the name and it sounded like a romantic novelist) and four novels as Diney Costeloe.
All are also in large print and several recently published as e-books.
See my reviews on Amazon and on my website, http://www.dineycosteloe.co.uk or http://castlehavenbooks.co.uk

Always start the next one, even if it's only with a sentence or two, then you're never faced with a blank page. Also it's a good idea to edit and review what you wrote yesterday and then move straight on.(less)

Hi Poppy-Kathryn.
Thank you for your question. I'm so glad you enjoyed The Sisters of St Croix. I suggest that you read The Lost Soldier next as the Sisters are actually a sequel to it, so you'll find out how Sarah came to be at the convent.
All my other books are stand alone, so it doesn't matter which order you read them in. If and when you get to them I hope you all enjoy them too!
All the best and happy reading whatever it is!(less)
