October 2015


Diane Haeger, who currently writes as Anne Girard, is a bestselling author of 15 novels, most of them based on real historical figures. Since the publication of her acclaimed first novel, "Courtesan" in 1993, which remains in print today, she has traveled extensively. These research trips have taken her from the romantic halls of a French chateau, and the haunting courts and chambers of Henry VIII, to a private interview in Provence with one of Pablo Picasso's last surviving friends. Her work has been translated into 18 different languages to date, and she has been short-listed for the prestigious Leserpreis award bringing her international success and award-winning status.

“It was she who had led him to find himself. Picasso had risen to the challenge God had placed before him without even realizing it. In spite of his fears, in the face of her lengthy illness, and now her impending death, he had not abandoned her. Her steadfast love had helped him to become a noble man, and to be there for her in a way he had not been able to be for Conchita.”
Anne Girard, Madame Picasso

“You’re threatening me?” she asked as incredulity tumbled over her anger, and her heart began to sink again beneath the weight of a thousand disappointments in him that had come before this one.”
Anne Girard, Platinum Doll

“In spite of her newfound celebrity, Harlean still believed herself to be the property of others, a circumstance from which she longed to break free.”
Anne Girard, Platinum Doll
