Diane Wylie

Biography

I love books that will take me on an emotional roller coaster ride. What better genre than romance to do that? I have always particularly loved romances for their dashing heroes and beautiful heroines. What kind of books do I write? Here they are:

**Historical Romances:
Since watching Gone With the Wind as a child, I have also had an avid interest in the American Civil War. This interest comes to bear in my acclaimed historical romance novels, "SECRETS AND SACIFICES," "JENNY'S PASSION," and "LILA'S VOW," along with short story, "A Soldier to Love." "ADAM'S TREASURE", also features some figures from history--Pinkerton agents.

"DAUGHTERS OF THE CIVIL WAR" is a new book bundle containing two of my Civil War romances. People have been snatching up this deal by the hundreds!

**Fantasy/Paranormal Romances:
A hot, new magical series has now become a reality for me. Each magician gets his power for magic from a different amulet. But his power comes with a price...immortality. Is this a curse or a blessing? Starting with "PRELUDE TO MAGIC", you'll find the introduction to the Mark of the Magician Book One: "MOONLIGHT AND ILLUSIONS". This is now followed by Book Two: "MAGIC OF THE PENTACLE", which was a quarterfinalist in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award contest. Book Three: "MAGIC AT THE ROXY" was recently released to complete the series.

**Romantic Suspense:
A recent addition to my group of books is "OUTLAW LOVER", a romantic suspense that draws on my experience growing up as part of an autoracing family.

About Diane:

I work full time as a technical writer/editor and hope to one day write novels full time. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in biology/animal science. (I had hoped to be a veterinarian, but that didn't work out.)

I live in Maryland with my husband (a former racecar driver), son, and two little Welsh corgis, Dixie and Yoshi. I am also happy to live relatively close to my daughter, son-in-law, and two cute-as-a-button grandchildren.

I am a very lucky person to have this life, and I am grateful beyond words for my loving family.

Thanks for taking the time to visit this page. I hope you like these books and will tell your friends about them. For more information, check out www.dianewylie.com. You can follow me on Facebook and Twitter too. The links are on my website.
