“When I was eighteen and living a humdrum and boring life, my hormone-soaked cells raced through by body screaming, “Let’s get the hell out of here!”
Diane Wood has been writing as long as she can remember.
When she was required to write a blurb for her high-school
yearbook she announced, “I will go out into the world and have
all kinds of exciting experiences. When I’m old I’ll write about
them.” Her life’s experiences, told from a woman’s world
perspective, have intrigued and entertained friends and colleagues
for decades. She’s been published in small rags, won a few writing
contests along the way, and written stories from experience
about living with passion, humor, and redemption. Diane’s background
includes being a bar owner in Denver, a women’s shelter
director, a private chef to the rich and famous, and an elder care
advocate. Stories abound. Now that she is actually retired she’s
writing about those personal experiences. Her current novel, Vital
Signs, is in its final revision on its journey to publishing.
