Murder, Ken Kesey, and Me

A novel by

An indie company comes to Oregon to film Acid Test: The Life of Ken Kesey. Eugene location scout Estrella "Star" Stevens stumbles over a dead body and into the crushing embrace of the FBI. She's forced to join their risky investigation of gangland boss and titty bar owner Oscar Quarry. Narrowly escaping death, she's suddenly living her own movie. Will she be a star? Or the next corpse? And which homicidal Oregonian is racking up the body count?

A fellow Oregonian, Diana followed Ken Kesey to Stanford where her creative writing class was NOT the one he visited while on the lam. Those parallels form the basis of a lifelong fascination with the man and his brilliant novels. Her tribute to Kesey is a comic mystery evoking a laid-back era, in sharp contrast to a harsh post 9/11 law enforcement approach.

Diana Deverell was a US Foreign Service Officer and served in Washington DC, San Salvador, and Warsaw, before she moved to rural Denmark to write full-time. She debuted as a published writer in 1998 with 12 Drummers Drumming, her first Casey Collins Counterterrorism Thriller.

Her current project is the Nora Dockson Legal Thriller series, featuring an ex-con turned feisty appeals lawyer. The first three books are Help Me Nora, Right the Wrong, and Hear My Plea.

Diana also writes short fiction starring FBI Special Agent Dawna Shepherd. Dawna's fourteenth published adventure "Shaken, Not Stirred" is in the Jan/Feb 2016 edition of Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine. To hear what's next, Sign up for News on Diana's website.
