About Author Diane M How

If you’re looking for short stories that make you chuckle, poems that bring you comfort, and passionate thoughts that give you pause, you’ve come to the right place. Fair warning, I’m a hopeless romantic, an incurable optimist and I want to know both sides of the story before coming to a conclusion, a fact that often drives my husband of 47 years a little nuts when he’s trying to make a point.

I’m retired , have a remarkable daughter who is engaged to a thoughtful man, and offer occasional hotel service to our lovable grand dog, Hammie, who by the way, saved my life in one of my short stories (The Finishing Touch).

Diane How book cover

My memoir, a compilation of short stories that may make you laugh or shed a tear, is available through Amazon.  

My current works in progress is Burning Embers. I wrote it during NANOWRIMO (National Novel Writing Month) and hope to find a cover for it soon. Here’s a little glimpse:

Brittany Harbor nearly died in a horrific automobile accident that claimed her father’s life. Skilled surgeons transform her physical appearance to reflect the gorgeous daughter her mother always wanted, yet no one is able to heal the invisible scars that grip her heart. Moving from Manhattan to a remote cabin in Nevada was meant to bring her peace and solitude. Fate has other plans.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and I hope you visit often and please, take a few minutes to share your thoughts. I’d love to hear about your writing experiences. Drop me a line at authordianemhow@gmail.com

  3. Hi Diane! My name is Marian and I live in Cumming, GA. I just finished reading The Dahlonega Sisters and enjoyed it so much! I have strong ties to Dahlonega because our daughter and son-in-law live in Dahlonega and own the Giggle Monkey Toy Store! Our daughter said that you have family living in their neighborhood. Also, our daughter and son-in-law and one grandson graduated from the University of North Georgia. I could relate to the stores and restaurants that you mentioned in the book and it was a very cute and heartwarming story! Another connection that we have is that my sister Becky is a writer who lived in St. Peters until recently and I think that you two know each other. It really is a small world! Looking forward to your next book.


    • Thank you, Marian! It is so wonderful to hear from readers. The threads of life that connect us all continuously amaze me. I appreciate your kind words and appreciate you taking the time to share them with me. Becky and I chatted on Facebook about our connections with Dahlonega. My brother and his wife live there and Tammy is part of the same book club as my Sister-in-Law. I believe I have met Tammy a couple times. I’m busy getting my second book, Veins of Gold, ready to send to an editor. Hopefully it will be out in October. Thank you again for your lovely comments. Blessings to you and your family. Diane
