Diane is a member of the Columbia Chapter of the Missouri Writer’s Guild and the Ozarks Writers League. She has had numerous pieces chosen for publication in the 2012 and 2014 literary works of Well Versed. She is currently working on the sequel to Pathways of the Heart, entitled All That Matters.
Diane loves to write Christian romance, but for years she’s known of a true story worthy of sharing. Pathways of the Heart is a tale about a spunky young daughter of a judge who falls in love with the son of a school teacher just prior to the Great Depression amidst the backdrop of the Missouri Ozarks. In the beginning their love is strong. She gives birth to six children during hard times and struggles to remain faithful when her husband’s drinking, gambling, and infidelity threatens their happiness. But, when the one she loves denies her of the love she longs for, can she resist a younger man’s charms? This story of love, heartbreak, tragedy, and redemption is not only true, but personal to Diane since she is the seventh child of the heroine.
