About the Author

As the youngest in the family, growing up on a farm in Findlay, Ohio, Diane often acted out characters from her own stories in the backyard. In high school she was the student sitting in class with a novel hidden in front of her propped up textbook. Before starting on her writing career, Diane was a schoolteacher and play director.

She met her husband while teaching at an orphanage, and they married three years later. While raising their six children in southwestern Ohio, Diane started writing non-fiction. Later, she decided it would be a nice escape to write fiction plus keep sane with a full and noisy household.

Several non-fiction articles of Diane's have been published in Woman's World Weekly, The Catholic Telegraph, Virtue, Down Syndrome Today, WritersWeekly.com, and several other publications. Her book, The Christmas of 1957, was reissued under the title A Christmas Gift. It placed second in the 2010 Preditors & Editors Poll (novel category) and received 5 stars from the Midwest Book Review. She writes contemporary romance, inspirational mainstream, chick-lit mystery, and non-fiction books. Her novels have received great reviews from readers and reviewers.

Diane has published through a variety of houses, including Publishing by Rebecca J. Vickery, Samhain Publishing, Whimsical Publications, Victory Tales Press and Booklocker.com. She writes fun and inspiring stories filled with memorable characters. Diane gives thanks to God daily for all her wonderful blessings.

Recently, Diane has enjoyed publishing her first Amish romance, A JOYFUL BREAK (Dreams of Plain Daughters, Book One).

Craver crafts a wonderful tale about sisterhood, friendships, and falling in love with "Whitney In Charge." The Taylor Sisters are passionate, caring, and a total hoot thanks to Craver's careful storytelling. Shannon is the oldest, about to turn forty and facing that number isn't a pleasant thought. Regan is the middle sister and has to balance motherhood, sisterhood, and being a wife, but it's Whitney who shines as she learns to mend her broken heart with the help of her concerned sisters. The story starts with Shannon and Regan offering Whitney skydiving lessons in the hopes that she'll meet a man. Whitney's husband was a war correspondent in Iraq and lost his life there. Whitney, who was a producer for a news show came back to her home town to take care of her mother, who was dying. She's spent the last couple of months grieving her husband and mother, and her sisters want to her to open a new chapter in her life. While Whitney agrees to tentatively date, she does get her sisters to agree to open up a business with her. What that business is, there's much debate. Whitney meets a neighbor, Ben, with a young son, Adam. Ben is divorced. Whitney also meets a paramedic, Jack, through Regan. Let the best man win. Whitney slowly comes out of her grief. She begins to put her mother's clothes away and even takes off her wedding band. After a disastrous date with Ben, where she gets injured, she even questions if she should be dating. Then she meets Jack. Jack inspires passion in Whitney, and while Ben is a nice guy, Whitney slowly realizes that it's Jack who she wants to explore a relationship with. Jack has a secret though - he witnessed her husband's death and he's not so certain how she's going to take it when he tells her. When he finally does, both Whitney and Jack put their past behind them. Craver's writing style is engaging and easy to read. The opening chapter grabs the reader right away as Shannon and Regan show concern and love for Whitney. Craver's characters are quirky and fun. Whitney is a heroine that modern women can identify with. There are no love scenes in the book, just a few hot kisses and a sensual touching scene, which are tastefully done. If anything, I would have loved more sensual scenes between Whitney and Jack. "Whitney In Charge" is a nice romantic interlude that will leave the reader with a smile.
