While raising their six children, Diane started writing non-fiction. Later, she decided it would be a nice escape to write fiction plus a way to keep sane with a full and noisy household. Diane published through a variety of houses, including Samhain Publishing and Whimsical Publications. When she started self-publishing her Amish stories, Diane found being in control of all aspects of publishing was rewarding. She requested the book rights back from her previously published books so she could self-publish them.
Diane writes Amish fiction, contemporary romance, romantic suspense, Christian historical fiction, and women's fiction. But there's more-she's also a wife, mother to six children and grandmother to four grandchildren in southwestern Ohio.
