I am Diane Nighswonger, and I love fantasy, science fiction, and happy endings.  I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 38 years, and we have 2 happily married children and 3 grandchildren, so far.  I taught English, French, and journalism for 30 years and am now re-inventing myself as I work in a fashion boutique.

I wrote and directed 2 vacation bible programs and 3 Sunday School Christmas pageants.  I also self-published beginner reader’s books about my father-in-law and my mother-in-law as children in rural Wyoming.  I wanted my grandchildren to know about their Grandpa Tom and Grandma Shirley.

In June of 2017, I attended my first Wyoming Writer’s Conference and pitched my story, THE LUCIEN SAGA.  Patricia Landy of Crystal Publishing offered me a contract three days later.  April of 2019, I launched my book, after two years of learning, editing, creating a website, revising, adding a fifth story to the saga, editing some more, and working with wonderful people of the publishing business.

The tales I write are simple stories designed to entertain, to impart a good message, and perhaps to enchant just a little.
