A CPA/tax attorney, Diane spent several years at an international accounting firm, where she had the pleasure of working with a partner later convicted of tax shelter fraud. She also served a stint as an Assistant Attorney General for the State of Texas under an AG who pled guilty to criminal charges related to the tobacco company lawsuits. Given this work history, Diane decided self-employment might be a good idea. She also realized her experiences with white-collar crime made excellent fodder for novels. Her fingers hit the keyboard and thus began her humorous “Death and Taxes” romantic mystery series.
Diane won the prestigious Romance Writers of America Golden Heart® Award in 2009. Her debut novel, Death, Taxes and a French Manicure, will be released by St. Martin’s Press in November 2011. Death, Taxes, and a Skinny No-Whip Latte, book #2 in the “Death and Taxes” series, will follow in March 2012.
Diane loves to speak at libraries, bookstores, book clubs, and other events!
