Meet the Author

Diane Ramirez has publishing credits in local newspapers, magazines, and on-line ezines. She enjoys writing about issues that speak to the heart in a witty, candid, and inspirational style. She enjoys writing for her two blogs: “Spiritual Reflections,” her musing on faith issues, and “Not Losing Heart,” her blog for families with loved ones living with mental illness.


Diane enjoys writing children’s picture books. Her inspiration and creativity for writing children's books began at the birth of her first grandson, eleven years ago. She now has five grandchildren who provide her with character studies, sayings, and fun story ideas. Diane has written and polished two manuscripts and has two more in process.


In 1990, Diane self-published a Bible study on sexual purity for teens, along with a Bible study for those who needed to understand God's forgiveness. She also designed and presented a weekend workshop for Christian teens on the topic of purity and gave similar presentations to local area junior high schools when she directed a pregnancy support center.


Over the last 20 years, Diane has spoken at Christian women's gatherings and retreats, and facilitated workshops.

    Highly Recommended

    This is a must read. Speaking or writing to someone grieving is uncomfortable for everyone. Fear of saying the wrong thing effects us all. Is terrible to say something insensitive or hurtful without realizing it. This book covers all situations of death and how to respond to the living.
