Diane Roads lives in Kansas with her husband . One of her biggest passions is her School Supply Ministry through her church. She knows young writers can’t be inspired without pencil and paper. Her second passion is in her writing. She had been to eleven schools by the fifth grade, that in itself made writing a challenge, and with amazement she dared to dream when she wrote her first book, Only the Dog Knows. Using her dog Emmy as role model, she borrowed pages from her life story, she started to write, and she hasn’t stopped. An avid reader of mysteries Diane gains support and encouragement with her writing from the Kansas Writers Association. No, she has never jumped out of an airplane, but would love to go up in a hot air balloon.
