About Diane Amos

The thought of writing a book never entered my mind until a friend mentioned she was writing a romance and belonged to the Maine Chapter of the Romance Writers of America. I accompanied her to a meeting, and I was hooked. Undaunted, to me, writing a book was simply stringing together sentences to form paragraphs, arranging the paragraphs into scenes, then placing the scenes into chapters. If I wrote enough chapters-viola, I had a book.

Little did I know!

Finally, nine books and seven years later I received "The Call" at 10:11 AM on October16th, 2002. The editor of Five Star wanted to discuss my book! The rest is history.

I live in a small town north of Portland, Maine with my husband, Dave. We have four grown children, four grandsons and two granddaughters. I operate an art studio in my home where I teach both children and adults. Many of my adult students have taken classes from me for years and have become great friends. We have so much fun in class, at times, I wonder whether I should be paying them. I hope they don't read this bio.

I'm an established Maine artist. My paintings are in private collections across the United States. When I'm not writing or painting, I'd like to say I'm either racking up miles on my exercise bike or jogging in a marathon-sounds impressive, but don't believe it. I know that exercise is good for me, but why can't it be as much fun as it looks on the television infomercials that persuade us to buy their torturous machines?

I enjoy spending time with my family at our camp on a small Maine pond or watching television-I confess I'm a reality show addict-what better place to find characters for my books!

I've been married for over thirty-five years to my real-life hero, a man who's supported and encouraged me over the years and still puts a smile on my face.

Review by: Susan Vaughan on Sep. 27, 2012 :
Getting Complicated by Diane Amos is the perfect lead-in to her books Getting Personal and Getting in Deep. Her heroine Monique is a hoot, struggling with her mother, with men, and with finances. The conversation between Monique and her friend about Monique's mother's foray into writing erotica had me laughing out loud. The lively dialogue and oddball situations made for a fast read that had me wanting more.

Review by: Joyce Lamb on Sep. 05, 2012 :
Getting Complicated is the prequel to Diane Amos' hilarious "Getting" series, which includes Getting Personal and Getting In Deep. Amos' writing always makes me laugh until all the woes in the world slide away for a while. In Getting Complicated, we get to meet Monique St. Cyr and her best friend, Jeannine. Right off the bat, they're discussing Monique's mother's foray into writing erotica, which totally fits into today's Fifty Shades of Twilight craze. A discussion about euphemisms for a certain male body part had me giggling long after I finished reading Getting Complicated. If you haven't given Diane Amos a try, Getting Complicated is a great place to start -- and soon you'll be "getting" the rest of Diane's contemporary and historical romances.
