Diane was born in Aurora, Illinois in 1943. Diane likes to brag that she has had a library card since she was in Kindergarten. When she was fifteen years old, her family moved to Minneapolis. Since then she has considered both Illinois and Minnesota her home state. In 1977, Diane earned a B.A. in Social Work at Minnesota State University Moorhead. After working in that field for eight years, Diane returned to graduated school at the University of Minnesota where she earned an MSW. She worked as a psychotherapist at a community mental health center and a clinical social worker at a psychiatric hospital. Diane Has also managed a group home housing developmentally disabled adults. Moving away from the seriousness of social work, Diane worked for more than ten years managing a group of saleswomen, selling lingerie at home parties.
Like many people, her dream was to write a novel someday. Currently she is semi-retired, works part-time at Kishwaukee College Library, and lives in Sycamore, IL. In 2007, Diane took a creative writing fiction course. One of the stories produced for that class won second prize and was published in the 2008 Kameilian Literary and Arts Magazine.
Diane has three children and six grandchildren. When not writing, she enjoys crocheting and visiting her friends in Minnesota. "Too Dead To Dance" is her first novel.
