Diana J. Oaks
Diana Oaks is the third of eight children. She grew up in a large and loving home with all of the hi-jinx one would expect with six brothers in the house. She has been known to bemoan the lack of any serious childhood angst to draw upon when writing. She graduated in 1981 from Ricks College in Rexburg Idaho, with an emphasis on Interior Design. She considered changing her major to English, but was told by her English professor that it was a dead-end degree. She has been known to bemoan the lack of any serious sentence diagramming drills to draw upon when writing. Diana has been married to her husband Adam since 1982, and is a mother of three adult children, who are now making her a happy "Nana."
Her debut novel, "One Thread Pulled: The Dance with Mr. Darcy," was released on August 14, 2012. She started writing it at the end of 2010, when the economic downturn caused a severe cutback in her work hours. The story developed a large online following prior to publication in print and eBook format, which were posted under the pen names "Artemis Acorn" and "fiveoaks."
She is currently writing the sequel to "One Thread Pulled," under the working title, "Constant as the Sun," which chronicles the events of the six-month engagement period imposed on Darcy and Elizabeth by Mr. Bennet.
Diana currently resides with her husband in Salt Lake City, Utah.
