WHAT MY CLIENTS HAVE TO SAY

“Diane’s classes and means of teaching are thought provoking and inspiring. Capturing your
attention for the entire time, you are propelled forward, excited to put forward what you learned.
If you have the opportunity to join one of her classes and don’t participate, you are cheating
yourself of the best thing you can do for yourself or your writing. Diane is the crème de la crème.”
