     It's Diana.  Just a quick hello to any of you looking to escape the chaos of this world. I may have some wonderful distractions. Whether it be in the Berkshires of Massachusetts, the sultry heat of Miami, the cozy romantic white mountains of New Hampshire, the hustle of New York City, or how about in a rustic cottage in the Outer Banks of North Carolina where a sisterhood of women celebrate life?  
     I promise you that my stories and alumni of characters will keep you entertained, and you will fall in love with them.

        My latest book in the works is YOU LOVED ME ONCE.

Preston and Emma withdrawal!! I stopped reading the other one and I’m dying for the new one. I need a book from my favorite author!!!                 Jannine P. 



       Hollywood’s aging femme fatale, academy award-winning actress forty-six-year-old Kashmir Rollins is no stranger to addictions, outrageous behavior, and rehab. She is divorcing her second husband internet shopping mogul Preston Burke, ten years her junior. In the middle of shooting her latest film in Miami, Kashmir rushes off to her divorce attorney for a meeting. With the pending high-stakes divorce, tempers are high.

      In a foolish moment, everyone’s lives will be instantly changed. This brings soon-to-retire Miami Detective Cabello to dig into the case, turning Preston’s life upside down. Why did Preston buy the red Ferrari at auction? His high-powered attorney and main emotional support, Jackson Rula, holds the answers to the mysterious questions.

       Demoralized and depressed, Preston returns to his childhood home in North Conway, New Hampshire, surprising his first love, Emma Canton.  Preston reminds Emma the world is an oyster if she finds her heart back with him. There is one problem. Her boyfriend, local veterinarian Joshua Reed, finds himself in the middle of a complex web. Emma's heart is with Joshua, but her body is hard to resist Preston. Emma will discover Preston is not the man he once was and there will be consequences. Her dreams turn into nightmares filled with terror as Kashmir warns her, "You're next." Next for what?

       Did Preston intrude on Emma’s heart using his charms to gain an heir? He knows of his destiny and maybe he genuinely loves her. Where does big-hearted Joshua land in this twisted plot? That is a hard question to answer as the detective is closing in on Preston.

Some stories have a fairy tale ending. I will let you decide if that ending finds Emma.


What do you do when your heart is in the present but still lost in the past?

The answer is not easy. In fact, it can be painfully confusing.


Beach Heart Cottage

     It’s 1939 on North Carolina’s Outer Banks in the small village of Hatteras. After an early season hurricane brushes the coast, three sisters venture out for shells. What they find fills them with mystery and excitement. In celebration of this find, a ceremony of the mermaid is passed down through generations of women who vacation at the Beach Heart Cottage. A sisterhood.

     It’s the current day and who says middle-aged women dressing up as mermaids and dancing around a bonfire under the full moon is for the youthful? Certainly not these awesome women. When it is 35-year-old Caroline’s turn to be crowned as the newest mermaid of the sisterhood, she finds her heart opens to a new beginning.


     Vacationing at the Beach Heart Cottage from her stressful job in D.C. as the presidential candidate, Senator Colton Jameson’s Publicist, Caroline discovers her life begins after meeting the alluring man next door who just moved to the island. One problem. That the presidential candidate was her former lover. He and her dominating mother want Caroline to be by his side as the First Lady.

     Only the magic of Hatteras Island can help her decide where her heart should beat.

Bring your sunblock, a glass of wine, and flip-flops to the cottage. The sisterhood welcomes all new mermaids! I forgot to mention. Men stay home on this vacation!
