About

Di croppedI was born as the youngest of 3 kids and grew up in the sprawling metropolisย dorpie of Boksburg in Gauteng. Being the baby of the family, I never attempted to learn cooking, cleaning or anything useful. I did, however, have a Std 2 teacher tell me that I have a talent for writing stories and that I should carry on. That stuck with me.

I studied fashion design after school, the only trouble being, I am not particularly interested in fashion. I am the complete opposite of fashionable. Anti-fashionable. I’ve managed to make good use of the sewing skills, but as a career? Heck no.

I’m delighted to say that my Std 2 teacher seems to have been right, as I’ve managed to keep up a good stream of freelance writing work since 2004, and have just had my first novel, Finding Mia, published by Harbourlight / Pelican Book Group.

  1. Nice website! Your husband is a photographer? That’s insanely cool. My wife and I are both in the arts, and we can relate on a different level and share ideas that I don’t find from anyone else. I’m sure you know what I mean!

  2. Good morning Dianne! I just wanted to stop by and say thank you for following my blog. ๐Ÿ™‚ Have a wonderful day!

  3. I’ve given you the Sunshine Award (see the post Some Time in the Sunshine to grab it)

    Have a wonderful day!

    PS. I just realized I revamped my site using this same theme!

  4. Hey Dianne,

    Thanks for following me.

    I’ve just had a look around your website – It’s really good – also the synopsis / blurb for ‘Shackles’ is well thought out and catchy – congrats – good luck to you!

    1. Thank you Martin, your kind words are so good for me to hear. I always feel like writing a synopsis is like fitting the entire contents of ones house into the postbox – challenging to say the least! Much appreciated. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Hello Dianne,

    I hope the sun is shining brightly in your heart and the sea is always blue in the part of your horizon.

    1. Amelia, you’ve made my day! Thank you so much. I’ve been doing family and haven’t touched my computer for weeks, only found this now. So grateful for the encouragement, you are such a blessing!
