Diane’s Recent Updates

“I will land on my feet with a smile on my face.”
Diane Cook

“She hated her mother’s fierce love. Because fierce love never lasted. Fierce love now meant that later, there would be no love, or at least that’s what it would feel like. Agnes wanted a mild mother, one who seemed to love her exactly the same every day. She thought, Mild mothers don’t run away.”
Diane Cook, The New Wilderness

“How people felt about one another was always in the voice. In the way they talked to one another when they thought they were alone.”
Diane Cook, The New Wilderness
