Since her childhood in New Zealand, Diana has loved writing stories. While she also enjoyed public school teaching, an autoimmune condition led her to change careers and become a full time author. She placed first in the 2015 Paranormal Book Awards and the 2016 EPIC Awards.

Until 2017 Diana published mostly straight romance, but an extended health crisis caused reassessment of her goals. Consequently she began her first wlw novel, The Falcon’s Heart. As a bisexual woman, with LGBTQA family and friends, she wants her books to celebrate a diversity of relationships and journeys.

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)

Progression of a Book Cover

With my wlw fantasy romance novel The Falcon's Heart now available to readers, I've received lovely positive feedback on the cover. I thought it might be fun to share the evolution of this design.
