Here’s what readers have to say about Diane’s work.
It’s easy to see why your story was honored: so poignant and such a gifted insight into a situation that was alien on so many levels. The ending must have been apt: I wept. Jay Gordon.
excellent piece of writing. Positive images of Afghans simply are too few and far between — but this is a truth that certainly needs to get out. Thanks! Veterans from Afghanistan
It’s one thing to give money (what my Mom called “checkbook-generosity”) like I do, another altogether to give up your time and energy like you do to promote a cause. Linda

Your Cajun Country article is wonderful! Your writing is tremendously full of life and great scenes — a delight to read! (BR)

Honduras: A place that honors goddesses and chocolate. Has to be a fascinating destination. ’Course, the visual of you pushing the Jeep was my favorite. JG
I have read your story in FRANCE - A Love Story. It is like a chocolate raspberry truffle. I pick it up, take a morsel, and then put it down again.
Wow! Such passion for life! And you share it so well. Thanks. Bev
