About the Author
At age 7, I won my first writing award: a three-foot-long fire truck with an ear-splitting siren. I've been addicted to writing ever since. As an independent researcher, freelance writer, lecturer, and tour guide, I indulge my curiosity and share my delight in art and history. For an up-to-date list of my books and essays, see DianneDuranteWriter.com.
