Diane McGyver’s professional writing career began in 1997. She made a living writing nonfiction, but her true passion lived in the fantasy world. Dusting off an old manuscript she had first completed in her late teens, she began uncovering the real story amongst the handwritten pages.
Diane currently lives in a hamlet on the beautiful Eastern Shore of Nova Scotia, Canada. She’s already made plans to retire–at an early age–to write by the sea where she spent her childhood. There, she will live in a peel tower or a stone cottage where she’ll raise chickens, vegetables and Trouble.
Diane prefers the old English she was raised on. So you’ll read amongst instead of among, sceptical instead of skeptical and smelt instead of smelled.
