I'm a suspense author, speaker and writing contest judge. Feisty women survivors and strong, brainy men are my specialty, because they are the characters that most interest me, both in life and fiction.

The Dianne Plan

I hope you have great writing and reading plans for 2020. My third book, The Road to Justice, just came out today (May 4) and I'm working on number four.

Unfortunately, the OWFI Conference was cancelled because of the Covid virus. Our group had an online awards ceremony, though, which was fun. I won a 2nd place in Mainstream Novel with the book I'm writing next and also a 3rd place in Thriller/Suspense Novel. So, a little silver lining in a difficult year.

My next stop is Killer Nashville    https://killernashville.com/
