About the Author

Diane 2012As a mentor to young adults and senior citizens, I guide others in preserving their life stories.  I am a graduate of DePaul University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Writing Education. I am a contributing author in the recently published Italian Women in ChicagoIn my spare time, I preview books for Penguin/Random House Publishing and new authors. Currently, I am working on a memoir based on my early childhood. I am also in the process of painting a Peter Pan themed Little Free Library which will be installed on my property for the children in my neighborhood.

One of my long-term goals is to read the top 150 novels of the 20th century. Here is a link to that list: http://www.friendswood.lib.tx.us/bookinfo/frpubtop150.htm

Bookwinked recently achieved its seven year anniversary! I am grateful for my followers around the world who inspire me to keep reading!
