Tuesday, August 5 at 7:00 pmCome meet visiting author Diane Hester. Diane is a US citizen currently living in Australia. Her new release Run to Me has just been named as a finalist in the 2014 Daphne du Maurier Awards for Excellence in Mystery/Suspense writing. The story is set in New England – Boston, New Hampshire, and northern Maine - and features Shyler O’Neil, a mother who has lost her son when another threatened boy comes into her life.
In 1989 Diane realized her childhood dream to live in the country when she and her family moved to a small farm outside Port Lincoln, South Australia. There she switched from performing to teaching violin and explored other creative outlets including gardening, spinning, knitting and carpentry. An animal lover, she also ran a donkey sanctuary for several years and dabbled in harness driving and riding.
But since discovering writing, Diane has done little else. When she isn’t hard at work at her latest novel she’s planning her critique group’s next retreat or a workshop for her local writing club. Run To Me, her debut novel, combines a love of Hitchcock-style suspense with memories of summer vacations in New England, her favorite place on earth. Check out her website at www.dianehester.com
