Diane McGyver writes stories, some long, some short. Regardless of genre, each story contains a bit of adventure, romance, survival and humour. She loves writing stories with a fantastical theme, but her current release “Northern Survival” is all about surviving in the wilderness after a plane crash. She’s been writing a long time, and the journey has taught her to not squander words. Each new story is more concise with less clutter than the previous.

Her future goals are to complete the 10-book series and to live in a peel tower with her soul mate near the Atlantic Ocean where she’ll raise chickens, vegetables and Trouble.

"I'm just here for the fun of it."

“I won’t have you calling me Miss Tuttle. That’s what the doc calls me. And the lady at the bank. One takes my temperature and the other my money. Friends don’t take anything—they give.”

“A radiant glow enveloped Alaura. Soft eruptions of various shades of effervescent green danced in the air and frolicked in the locks of her dark blonde hair. Whispers of yellows and blues revealed themselves near the skin, kissing the air with each leap.”

Diane McGyver He's young, but he's quite a character and has a large vocabulary for his age. We call him 'the next Jim Carey'.


Cassandra Giovanni I thought he looked young!
