After majoring in communications and a 10 year career as a travel agent, Dianna left the travel industry to earn her EMS degree.
An EMT and a Haz-Mat and FEMA Operative in EMS since 2005, she loves the adrenaline rush of responding to medical emergencies and helping people in need, often in their darkest time in life. Her suspense novels about adventurous characters thrown into tremendous circumstances provide readers with a similar kind of rush.
Dianna is a lifelong athletic competitor and outdoor enthusiast in climbing, running, cycling and scuba diving and she loves to travel and read. Married to her best friend, she met her husband, Leo, as they walked down a church aisle in a wedding as a bridesmaid and groomsman when she was eleven and he was thirteen. She lives in North Carolina with her husband and their three athletic children.
In 2009, Dianna was offered a four-book publishing contract, but soon after that her husband was diagnosed with head and neck cancer. She turned down that contract to focus on their young family of five, and God carried them all through the surgeries and radiation treatments.
“Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary; they will walk and not be faint.” – Isaiah 40:31
Dianna’s personal quote – “The grass isn’t greener on the other side, it’s just different.”
