Diane   Rosalind, I'm so glad your sister turned you on to my books. Please thank her for me. And my maiden name is, of course, Lopresti (small p) too. Are we related?

Hi Diane. I am a reader. I am 61 years old and have always been a reader. I have read hundreds of novels, both fiction and non-fiction. I came across one of your novels on amazon. Necessary Lies. I thought it was wonderfully crafted, so I bought The Silent Sister. Long story short, I now have 6 of your novels stacked up neatly on my desk. I just started reading Keeper of the Light, and when I opened it, which I bought on Amazon, 2 pages were stuck together. I separated them. This edition was a 1992 first edition and there was a signature from you to someone named Alana. It said 'To Alana - one of the people I most admire Enjoy! Diane' I was just wondering if you who she is.

Diane   Glad you're enjoying my books. And yes, I know who Alana is. I'll contact you via email.

Message 33 - Wayne & Diane Johnson
As members of large, dysfunctional southern families, we were caught up in your book. Graham's words, ..."everyone comes from a dysfunctional family"...certainly resonated with us. We look forward to seeing and hearing you this coming week in West Jefferson at our annual literary festival. All the best,
Wayne & Diane Johnson

Diane   If you've read Pretending to Dance, you've read my most recent book. It will be reissued in paperback in October in the US. The next as yet untitled book won't be out until October 2017. Thanks for asking1

Message 35 - Karen Rimington
Hello Diane, I started reading your books a couple of years ago and I have been hooked ever since. I have now read 15 of them. I have just finished reading 'Pretending to Dance', and was sad when it was finished. So much of the content resonated with my own life. I too have used CBT to help me in difficult situations, though I never thought of it as 'pretending', but I guess it is. I also have a 14 year old daughter who got herself in a bit of a pickle with an older boy, and I reacted how Nora did, but reading the story from both perspectives of Nora and Molly has helped me to understand what my daughter had gone through, so thank you. Can't wait to read 'The Silent Sister' now.

Diane   Karen, it's so sweet of you to share how P to D affected you in a personal way. I've heard the same from other readers and that always touches me. Thanks for sharing.
