Since her childhood growing up in New Zealand, Diana has been an avid storyteller. For years she enjoyed teaching art and special education, while writing as a hobby. After developing an autoimmune disorder, a career change was necessary, but happily this led her to become an award winning author.

Until 2017 Diana published mostly M/F romance, but a health crisis, (and a year away from writing), caused reassessment of her goals. Consequently she began her first F/F novel, The Falcon’s Heart. As a bisexual woman, with LGBTQ family and friends, she wants to represent greater diversity in her work. Going forward, Diana intends her books to celebrate a beautiful variety of relationships and personal journeys.

She won the 2016 EPIC Awards-fantasy/

I live the book with them, and then I have the joy of sharing it with readers. I also appreciate the myriad people I interact with; other authors, editors, book bloggers, and especially the wonderful fans who take time to contact me with questions and comments.(less)

In other situations I simply force myself to keep writing, even it seems slow and awkward. At least then I'm making progress, and it can always be edited later. Often, pushing forward eventually moves me past whatever obstacle blocked my way, and things begin to flow more easily again.(less)

I have a fondness for unusual westerns, and that could well describe this book. I enjoyed the POV of Jimmy Glass, a twelve year old boy looking after his younger sister, as their father is dying of small pox. The setting of Deadwood and the time peri ...more

I enjoyed both the previous books in this trilogy and am happy to say Winter of the Witch is a highly satisfying final installment. It is definitely dark, with quite a bit of violence and challenging thematic material. But Ms. Arden balances this wit ...more

I have long enjoyed books inspired by fairy tales, and this one had many of the classic elements in place. There were magical creatures, royalty, challenges in three parts, promises kept and promises broken. I appreciated how the author played with f ...more

Paladin of Souls is a splendid work of fantasy, better even than the previous book, The Curse of Chalion. This duology is some of the best of the genre, and I love that the quality stays so high throughout both books, right to the end. Not only does ...more

There is some good information in this book, but it's mostly what I've figured out for myself already. It also doesn't seem completely "real world" for people with limited resources, large families, or other situations different from what the authors ...more

Although the Curse of Chalion is not a perfect book, (if such a thing exists), its flaws are far outweighed by a brilliantly complex plot, rich characterization, and excellent world-building. This is not a fast moving novel, but the layers and intrig ...more
