Welcome to my realm on the world-wide web.
I am Diane McGyver. I write traditional fantasy stories about home, family, true love, friends, magic, horses, swords, daggers, honour, deceit, loyalty, castles, dwarfs, hauflins, elves and dragons. They are set in mediaeval times, a similar archaic time as Lord of the Rings.
This stems from my love of the original Dungeons and Dragons game I played in the late 1970s and early 1980s. That game inspired the first novel I ever wrote: Shadows in the Stone.
Dragons in the Dungeon
I am currently writing a stand-alone traditional fantasy novel inspired by Dungeons and Dragons.
I write a minimum 1000 words a day. On Friday nights, I have a write-a-thon, when I add an extra 3,000 words before midnight. The story is fantasy, adventure and action laced with romance. If I can inject a little humour, I’ll do that, too. It has elves, dwarfs, humans, hauflins, magic, dragons, horses and castles. In other words, my perfect adventure. My goal is 100,000 words. Currently, I have
67,738 words written (July 6th) for
