About the Author
Diana grew up in a small town in Eastern Connecticut. The mill town, Willimantic, once a thriving economic center, was the largest nearby community. There she remembers the mills, established in the 1800s and running until the mid 1980s. She has many ties to the mills and mill towns in eastern Connecticut, so it was natural that her novels are set in them.
Diana has spent years researching her topics from mills, mill workers and their life styles to small town histories.
“I enjoy writing about Eastern Connecticut, the places, the legends. When I hear a tail or story it piques my curiosity and sets me on a journey to discover more and to write about the environment and time period.”
