Editorial Reviews

CoastViews magazine - Deborah Killarney
This is a fabulous book and a fast read… an espionage thriller (that) will pique your interest from beginning to back page. Plots and twists are never-ending. You don't read far to solve the current mystery. But… you'll quickly find the heroine embroiled in yet another more intricate and sticky situation as pages turn. E is an emerging butterfly at the beginning of the book. Her experiences gradually transform her outlook on love and life, but through it all she is a survivor.
Novel Dialogue - Robby Schumacher-Gulledge
A roller coaster ride through dangerous relationships, deception, romance, mystery and steamy sexual scenarios.
spyguysandgals.com - Masteller
A fascinating story about making hard choices and living with the results... When the storyline takes E… to the Iran of the Ayatollahs, a somberness and realism step in that (makes it) impossible to put down.
noveladventurers.blogspot.com - Heidi Noroozy
Packed with memorable characters and well-researched cultural details, The Company She Keeps takes the reader on a thrilling ride from Washington D.C. to Paris and Tehran. I can't wait to accompany Nick Daley on his next Silk Road adventure!

An Asian importing business led to a Hollywood design career, and later scriptwriting led to novels. She is still smitten with the road not taken, still searching for the perfect suitcase.

Her romantic spy novel, Stinger, begins near the Khyber Pass as CIA officer Daley becomes entangled in an unusual triangle. In The Company She Keeps, Nick returns to Washington where he recruits a new agent and sends her into a world of danger. Diana is working on a California-Southeast Asia thriller and a true-life historical intrigue set in 1947 Hollywood and India.

Her work has been praised for its riveting plots, unusual characters, and deep sense of place.
