Diane has performed in Carnegie Hall, the NY Metropolitan Opera House, Eastman Theatre, the Sydney Opera House, Melbourne Town Hall, Adelaide Festival Theatre and accompanied artists as diverse as Isaac Stern, Itzak Perlman, Chuck Mangioni and Australias Little River Band.In 1989 Diane realized her childhood dream to live in the country when she and her family moved to a small farm outside Port Lincoln, South Australia. There she switched from performing to teaching violin and explored other creative outlets including gardening, spinning, knitting and carpentry. An animal lover, she also ran a donkey sanctuary for several years and dabbled in harness driving and riding.But since discovering writing, Diane has done little else. When she isnt hard at work at her latest novel shes planning her critique groups next retreat or a workshop for her local writing club. Run To Me, her debut novel, combines a love of Hitchcock-style suspense with memories of summer vacations in New England, her favorite place on earth.These days Dianes hobbies include juggling, movies and the study of creativity, learning and achievement.
