Diane is the daughter of a seamstress and a scientist, so naturally she likes fashion, fabric, and figuring things out. In her spare time she daydreams about owning a time capsule mid century modern ranch. She spent over twenty years in the fashion industry, where she was lucky enough to travel the world for runway shows, shoe markets, and lingerie fairs. Now she is lucky enough to stay home and write! 

Diane is a Pennsylvanian at heart, but currently lives in Southern California, where she set my Material Witness Mystery Series. The first, SUEDE TO REST, came out in November 2014. 

Her other series include the Style & Error Mysteries, featuring crime solving fashionista Samantha Kidd, (set in Reading, PA), and the Mad for Mod Mysteries, featuring Doris Day-loving interior decorator Madison Night (set in Dallas, TX)
