Diane K. Potter was born in the state of New York. As a child growing up in a suburb, exposure to history, nature, animals and the local library combined to make reading, writing stories and drawing an integral part of her life.
The Pack Rats is her second children's book. Her first book, Ups and Downs, is a humorous story involving farm animals and miscommunication.
A taste for adventure provided opportunities for her to live in a number of different states. A variety of experiences that have enriched and colored her life with stories include modeling, on-air television roles, on-air radio host, geology museum tour guide, a minor movie role, corporate secretary, photographer and guest speaker.
Her most unforgettable experience was taking the photograph entitled, Liberty's Glory. The photograph inspired her to write the 1,000 line epic poem, Freedom's Story ... Liberty's Glory.
She believes, "Reading is an essential part of learning; it exercises the mind, expands imagination and inspires exploration of our interests and our abilities. Reading is both a sanctuary and a constructive activity with benefits that last a lifetime. Acute observation ignites great expectations."
